Northwood Coach Mark Brown admitted that Mocorunning's prediction of the Gaithersburg girls defeating Northwood prompted him to take a closer look at how he would approach the meet. He did not fully reveal his strategy, but it probably had something to do with the use of his star athlete Le'Quisha Parker (most commonly referred to as Quisha).
Parker won the 100 and 200 meter dashes with a 200-meter time of 24.9h. Her speed surprised nobody, but her versatility in the field events may have turned some heads. She threw 30 feet and 4 inches in the shot put, which currently ranks #3 in Montgomery County so far this year. Her 20 point sweep was spoiled when Gaithersburg's talented new freshman, Chelsea Harris, jumped 5 feet and 2 inches. Parker jumped a mere 5 feet to accumulate 18 points against Gaithersburg and 20 points against Blair.
Northwood defeated Gaithersburg by 13 points, 72 to 59 and defeated Blair, 87-44. Gaithersburg defeated Blair, 82-53.
In the boys' meet, Blair showed that it is still a force to be reckoned with in the sprint events, but Gaithersburg was the strongest team in the end. Between Alimamy Kally, Trevon Carroll, Khare Cross, and Simba Gwashavanhu, Gaithersburg cleaned up in the jumps.
Carroll took the top spot in the 110-meter hurdles with an impressive time of 14.9h while Kallay and Northwood's Tevin Prince essentially tied in 15.5h (Kallay was given the nod).
Then in the 300-meter hurdles, Prince got into a close race with Carroll, with Prince taking the win in 40.4 and Carroll clocking 40.5. Kallay clocked 40.9 in a second heat for third overall.
Gaithersburg defeated Blair, 80-57, and defeated Northwood, 97-40, while Blair beat Northwood, 83-47.
Although the Blair boys' team is not a team that is deep enough to compete with the best teams in a dual meet, they made their presence felt in the sprints. They took the top three spots in the 100-meter dash and the top two spots in the 200-meter dash. Andrew Gondor, a top football recruit in the area (senior), and the last remaining sprinter from the last two "glory years" of Blair sprinting, won the 100m and 200m in 11.0h and 22.6h. Kevin Fallett, only a sophomore and one of the top soccer players in the area, placed second in the 200m in 23.2 and won the 400m in 51.7.
