It was a packed house at St. Paul’s on March 11 for the 3rd Annual Jim Tate Relays.  We hosted 22 teams and almost 1300 athletes.  

Senior Mac Conwell, Sophomore Janie Ford, and Junior Emily Miles were double gold at the meet. Conwell is back after injury and won the 1000m (2:33.45) and the 1600m (4:24.06) which was part of the 4x1600m winning relay also made up of Senior Jonathan Rush, Junior Philip Gill, and Sophomore Wesley Robinson.  

Janie Ford won the 100m hurdles in 14.64 and set a new school record while winning the 300m hurdles in 44.08. She was also second in the triple jump (37-3) and ran a blistering sub 55 second split on the winning Co-Ed 4x400m relay team. Her phenomenal teammates were Senior Evan Wrights (49 split), Junior Pape Davidson (52 split) and Senior Carley Perkins (59 split). Their winning time was 3:36.35 which is a competitive time for an all boys race.  

Junior Emily Miles won the 600m (1:40.00) and 1000m (3:06.79) in dominating fashion showing off her combination of strength speed and endurance.
