The Stratford Boy’s and Girl’s Track teams competed at the Berkeley County Championships last night and both teams looked impressive.
The Girl’s Team had several great individual performances, but none more impressive than that of Bethany Reeves. She won the 800 Meter Race, 1600 Meter Race, and the 3200 Meter Race. Also winning two events for the Lady Knights was Aaliyah Deveaux. She was able to take Gold in both the shot put and the discus, setting the new Berkeley County Meet Championship record in the shot put.
Also winning events for the Lady Knights were the 4×400 Meter Relay Team, the 4×800 Meter Realy Team, Dionah Bryant in the High Jump, and Mia Witherspoon in the Long Jump.
