Track and field: Felecia Majors dominates Wildcat Classic

If anyone can seemingly be in more than one place at a time it’s Felecia Majors. About 48 hours after finishing second in the girls’ pole vault at Penn Relays, the South County junior won five individual events with five meet records on Saturday at the Wildcat Track Classic in Stafford.

It was behind that effort that the Stallions won the girls’ team competition over South Lakes, Colonial Forge and Woodbridge.

South Lakes won the boys’ meet. Mountain View, Woodbridge and Colonial Forge followed.

Majors, who is used to cycling through overlapping events locally, rotated through different cities over the weekend. She impressed at Franklin Field in Philadelphia on Thursday before making the 200-mile trip down Interstate 95 and dominating at Mountain View High.

She kicked things off in the high jump by winning with a personal-best 5 feet 5 inches. Colonial Forge’s Crystal Jones was runner-up with 5-4, a remarkable leap by a freshman performer.

Majors, the All-Met Athlete of the Year indoors, also won the triple jump by two feet with 36-8 before breezing to victory in the 100-meter dash (12.41) and 200 (25.29).

In between, she won the pole vault by more than three feet over teammate and 100 hurdles champion Morgan Knight with a personal-best 12-2. That beat the winning height in the boys’ competition and is .5 of an inch taller than her clearance at Penn Relays.

“She likes doing a lot of things,” South County Coach T.D. Holsclaw says of Majors. “I think she gets bored if she doesn’t.”

Battlefield girls shine in Richmond

The girls from Battlefield won the Milestat.com Elite Track Classic on Saturday over Cosby and Elizabeth Seton.

Sophomore Jasmine Hill powered the Bobcats at Sportsbacker’s Stadium in Richmond. She won the 400 in 57.31 and was fourth in the 200 in 25.95.

Senior Virginia Hill was runner-up in the 300 hurdles (46.23). Armstrong senior Alea Stevens was too strong for the field and won in a meet-record 44.92.

A pair of young throwers left their marks in the field. Battlefield sophomore Galissia Cause was the girls’ shot put champion with a meet-record 42-3.75. That is the No. 2 throw in the Washington area this season.

Riverdale Baptist freshman Rashad Manning finished second in the boys’ event with 50-11.

McLean senior Scott Lafoon was runner-up in the boys’ discus with a personal-best 158-11, the No. 2 throw by a Washington-area athlete this season.

Back on the track, Elizabeth Seton senior Chelsie Stevens won the 100 meters. The Missouri signee beat Patrick Henry senior Shyra Molton to the line in 12.03.
