Chandler blasts over the finish line of the 400 meter.

The Kingfisher Track Team headed for Orangeburg on April 23 (a beautiful day right in the middle of spring break) for our first meet.  The event was hosted by Ridge Christian Academy at Orangeburg Prep.  Teams from 12 different schools competed.

“Sarah ran really fast,” said Coach Gates, adding that she placed an extremely close third in the 200 meter, then fourth in the 100 meter.  He was also proud of seniors Chandler and Chris.  Chandler placed eighth in the 200 meter and Chris placed ninth in the mile out of 35 competitors.  Middle schoolers Tiyon and Adara held their own,  crossing the finish line in the middle of the pack against older runners from the twelve high teams.  The Kingfishers did a super job in their very first meet.  Thank you all the great fans who showed up to support the team.  Go Kingfishers!
