Athletes to Watch
Godson Akinnawo, High Point, Sr.
Akinnawo was the D.C. area's best high jumper during the regular season of indoor track, reaching a height of 6 feet 6 during the season.
Afolabi Aromire, C.H. Flowers, Sr.
The reigning All-Met Athlete of the Year for indoor track, Aromire enters the outdoor season with more promise than ever, and he could be one of the nation's best long sprinters. Aromire missed the last spring season with injuries, but now is coming off a dazzling indoor season.
Geoffrey Daley, DeMatha, Jr.
Daley will be tough in the sprints, and he will likely be part of the Stags' relays, which are always among the toughest in the area.
Larrone Moore, Northwestern, Sr.
Moore was a double winner at the Prince George's County championships and was selected All-Met last spring. He was the state indoor champ in the 55, and also earned All-Met indoor honors.
Charles Wilkinson, Oxon Hill, Sr.
Wilkinson was the state indoor champion in the high jump (6 feet 4), and he should once again lead a deep Clippers team that could contend against Eleanor Roosevelt and C.H. Flowers at the county, regional and state levels.
Starema Flood, Douglass, Sr.
Flood returns as one of the state's best in the 400 and 800. She was an indoor state and county champion in the 500 meters.
