(Jan. 20, 2023) Stephen Decatur indoor track athletes get better with each meet they compete in, and it was evident during last Wednesday’s competition at the Worcester County Recreation Center in Snow Hill.

“Although our team did not score a lot we did have several athletes continue to show improvements,” said Decatur Coach Brenda Hommel. “I will be readjusting some relay teams for the [Jan. 18] Bayside meet based on improved times by new runners in individual events. Hopefully, these adjustments will put us in a better position to score in the Bayside [Conference championship] meet.”

Twenty-four schools participated in last Wednesday’s meet.

The Decatur Lady Seahawks scored 12 points to finish in 13th place.

Junior Macy Woroniecki came in third place in the 3,200-meter race (12:46.06) and seventh in the 1,600-meter event (5:57.06).

Junior Tiara McDonald took seventh in the 500-meter run (1:32.14).

Woroniecki, sophomores Clarice Piela and Alessandra Fernandez and freshman Ellie Cheynet finished in seventh place in the 3,200-meter relay race (11:58.20).

The Decatur boys’ squad scored seven points to come in 19th place overall.

Sophomore Brandon Karvoski tied for sixth place in the high jump, with a height of 5 feet 4 inches. Junior Waylon Hobgood took seventh in the 55-meter dash (6.92 seconds).

Hobgood, sophomore Ethan Cowder, and seniors Riley Calloway and Jaden Holland crossed the finish line in sixth place in the 800-meter relay race (1:42.62).

The final meet of the regular season is Wednesday, beginning at 2 p.m. at the Worcester County Recreation Center.
