Track and field roundup: South County’s Morgan Knight doubles up at Lake Braddock invitational

Correction: A previous item in this notebook incorrectly reported that the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association Board of Control approved the long and triple jump for the 2015 indoor track and field state and region championships. The terms and conditions approved by the MPSSAA Board of Control did not include the two jumping events, which remain excluded from championship meets. This version has been corrected.
