On January 18, The Frederick County indoor track and field championships were held at Hagerstown Community College. The boys team placed second overall, just behind the first place Oakdale Bears.

Joey Felton, Carter Holsinger, Colby Bannon, and Michael Belmaggio all dominated in their events to push the Lancers’ score higher and higher. Felton placed first individually in the 55-meter dash with a time of 6.57 seconds. Two-time state champion, Carter Holsinger placed first in pole vault with a height of 14.00 feet. Belmaggio also placed first in the 3200-meter race. He lapped almost every competitor to finish with a time of 9:38.90. Bannon competed in high jump and placed first with a jump of 6’2″.

The already strong team is enhanced by event phenoms Felton, Belmaggio, Holsinger, and Bannon. Last year, the Lancers were Class 3A state champions.

“We have a lot of good athletes at different events. If everything goes well and our kids are healthy, we should be competing for the state championship again,” said Coach Bill Eckard.

The girls’ varsity team placed fourth overall. Mikayla Moxley placed second in the 500-meter race with a personal record of 1:21.08. Senior captain Khelsa Connolly also placed second in the 1600 meter race. She finished with a time of 5:40.52. Taylor Biss and junior captain Myah Davies both scored for their team in the pole vault. Biss placed fourth individually, and Davies placed fifth.  

“Everyone’s goal was to place well and we definitely did. I was very proud of the work everyone put in to get fourth,” said Davies.

The JV boys team also performed well. Freshman Jack Sears won the 1600-meter race with a time of 5:16.26. Ben Rose, Evan Gobien, Bailey Spore, and Kyle Wiegand placed second in the 4×400-meter relay and the 4×800-meter relay.

The Lancers’ next meet is on Friday, January 25 at Hagerstown Community College. They will be competing in the CMC championships with other Frederick County and Washington County schools.
