Kaiserslautern American

May 3, 2019 Higby knows that one weekend does not make a season. He has his eyes on the Euros and knows with whom he will battle when the time comes. “I know for discus, Ogden Andrews from Ansbach is beating me right

now. He is throwing over 140 feet.” In the shot put, Higby named Stuttgart’s outstanding athlete Tripp Carroll, who will wrestle at the Naval Academy next year. Between the three of them, that’s over 500 pounds of athlete. Every individual boys event was

won by a senior with three exceptions, Ramstein’s Dominic Arizpe in the 100 meters, sophomore Parsells in the 800 and junior Bryce Thomas in the long jump. Arizpe defeated Middlebrooks and teammate Jason Jones in the 100. Ramstein’s Jeremiah Allen won the high jump. In the girls portion of the meet, Ramstein used its overwhelming depth to win with 242 points, followed by 151 for Kaiserslautern, 115 for Wiesbaden and 15 for Baumholder. Ramstein won nine of the events. Baumholder’s lone victory came from LaNiya Meyers in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 54.46.Wiesbaden’s two burners, Ashanti Scott and Whitney Bivins, swept the 200 and 400 but were relegated to second and third by Kaiserslautern junior Mallory Harris’ outstanding run in the 100 meters. Harris prevailed by ‘one one hundredth’ of a second. How fast is ‘one one hundredth’ of a second? It takes a person one third of a second to blink, a hummingbird one tenth of a second to flap its wings. In fact, ‘one one hundredth’ of a second is probably not perceptible to the human eye. But thanks to electronic timing, that was the margin by which she beat Scott. Harris finished third behind Bivins and Scott in the 200 meters. Teammate

In the 800, Wiesbaden finished first, third and fourth, sandwiching Ramstein’s Alexis Pierre-Louis in second. Ramstein swept both the 1,600 and 3,200 meter races. Jordanne Hill and Kriti Lucero took honors in the 1600 and Lydia Coddington and Catherine Hickman won the 3,200. Coddington, a freshman, finished at 14 minutes, a full 41 seconds faster than her second place teammate. In the relays, Ramstein won twice while Kaiserslautern and Wiesbaden won one each. Ramstein took the top three spots in the girls triple jump. Barakat Ibrahim added to her victory as a member of the 4x400 relay team, followed by Sophia Sobczak and Chloe Williams. Williams also won the long jump where the Royals took nine of the 11 places. Jaya Worthington of Ramstein won the 100 meter hurdles. Caprinia Goode of Ramstein took the shot put and Royal Patience Williams won the high jump.
