Yesterday 15th annual Bob Golliday Memorial Invitational at Old Mill lasted only two hours but that was more than enough time for Annapolis' Kristen Nicolini and Old Mill's Raina Domneys as they combined to shatter four meet records.
Domneys, a senior who will attempt to defend her state #i championships this spring in both the long and triple jumps, set meet records in the triple jump (36-8 1/2 ) and the 100-meter hurdles (14.7 seconds) and earned her third first place by out-distancing Meade's Ulanda Archie in the long jump, 17- 1/2 to 16-4 3/4 .
Nicolini, who earned a personal invitation to the meet along with teammate Alison Ross and Arundel's Geoff Warren, set meet standards in both the 880-yard run (2:15.3) and the mile run (4:59.5). In both events, Nicolini held off Perry Hall's Krissy Jost.
"I knew there would be a lot of good runners here today but I knew if I went out and ran good times that the winning would take care of itself and it did," said Nicolini. "I don't think I've peaked yet but I'm right where I want to be at this point of the season."
Meade sprinter Andre Wise appears to be in top form after claiming first place in the 100-meter dash (11.0), 220-yard dash (22.7) and the 440-yard dash (51.6).
Old Mill senior Todd Singleton, the defending state high jump champ who recently jumped 6-9 1/2 for a school record last Friday at Penn Relays, set the only other meet record as he won the boys high jump by clearing 6-4 1/4 . Singleton later picked up his second first-place award after edging Perry Hall runner-up Mike Pucci in the triple jump.
Another Patriot, senior Nate Oliver, took first in the shot put (47-1 3/4 ) and the discus (155-10).
Perry Hall's Joe Leilich won the mile-run in 4:32.4 but had to settle for second in the 880 run behind Dennis Lomax of North County.
North County's Kenda Johnson was a double-champion as she won the girls 100-meter dash and 220-yard dash.
Old Mill sophomore Cathy Porter won the girls shot (33-4) and teammate Katie Mack won the girls discus (100-0).
The Patriots swept the girls high jump with Sara Kirby, Kristin Wimbrow and Dana Dawson finishing 1-2-3, -- all with jumps of 5-2.
