Lakeside followed up the 4×100 relay with an 18 point effort in the 1600 meter run as Andrew Kent (4:19.59) and Davis Stockwell (4:26.78) teamed up for their second 1-2 finish in the distance events. Kent’s time of 9:51.47 had won the 3200 on Saturday with Stockwell (9:51.85) just behind in second.
Freshman phenom Brian Herron added 10 more points to the Lakeside total by upsetting defending champ Terry Conwell of Southwest DeKalb in the 400 meter dash finishing with a time of 46.99 (1/100th of a second off the county record).
Herron would go on to take silver in the 200 (21.45) finishing between the twin duo of Terryon (21.16) and Terry Conwell (21.67) as the Vikings maintained the lead over Cedar Grove and Lakeside.
Terryon’s win in the 200 gave him a sweep in the 100 and 200 meter dashes for the second consecutive season as he took the 100 with a time of 10.46. Cedar Grove freshman Israel Spivey took third in the 100 as the Saints continued to hold on to second place in the standings.
Sophomore Myles Boyd added to the Vikings’ total with a big win in the 800 meter run (2:00.25) in a tight race with Stephenson’s Brandon Hines (2:00.82). Boyd’s victory was the fifth gold medal for the Vikings and sealed the win putting the Vikings up 91.50 to Cedar Grove’s 64 and Southwest DeKalb’s 61.50.
Cedar Grove’s Jessie Reverio (38.59) solidified the Saints second place standing by nipping Stephenson’s Denzel Harper (38.60) by 1/100th of a second to win the 300 meter hurdles.
