Freshman finishes third in 3,200 at Pikesville Track Classic
By Jeff Seidel, For The Baltimore Sun
Hereford freshman Kelly Wesolowski caught the attention of track coach Brad Duvall when training for soccer and playing that sport in the fall. Duvall believed Wesolowski could give the No. 3 Bulls a boost when she came over to track in the winter.
She did just that, quickly turning into one of the area's top distance runners during the indoor track season. Wesolowski has continued to develop in outdoor track, and turned in a strong, third-place performance in the 3,200 meters during the Pikesville Track Classic on Saturday.
The top-ranked McDonogh boys won the meet's team title with 70.5 points, beating out No. 7 Century (51). No. 9 Howard took the title for girls with 60 points. The No. 1 McDonogh girls were second with 45.5 points.
Wesolowski ran against indoor state champions Molly Offstein of Mountain Ridge (Class 2A) and Isabel Griffith from No. 7 Dulaney (Class 4A) and took the lead just past halfway on a cold and windy afternoon. The Hereford freshman remained in first until the gun lap, when Offstein and Griffith moved past her. Read More

McNulty, Oakdale’s latest record-breaking pole vaulter, clears personal best with new technique
By Greg Swatek News-Post Staff
MIDDLETOWN — Jackie McNulty’s pole vault very much remains a work in progress, which is both exhilarating for her and demoralizing for those who have to compete against her.
At Saturday’s Don Boyer Invitational, the Oakdale junior put the new turn at the top of her vault to its first real test.
The slow arrival of spring weather limited what she was able to do in practice. Previously, she went over the bar the unconventional way, feet first with her back facing the ground, yet still managed to set a state record (12 feet, 7 inches) during the indoor season.
On Saturday, with a turn that is still far from polished, McNulty notched a new personal record (12-9) to win the girls pole vault at the ninth running of the Boyer Invitational.
That alone could have made her the star of the meet in the field events. Except McNulty also demolished her own meet record in the triple jump (37-9) by almost two feet and nearly set the meet record in winning the long jump (17 4 1/2), missing the mark by one inch.
If that wasn’t enough, she also qualified for the finals in the 200-meter dash but had to pull out of the race due to scheduling conflicts with her other events. Athletes are permitted four events per meet. Read More

Balanced Bears lift trophy again
After juggling lineup all season, Oakdale girls produce a second straight team title
By Greg Swatek News-Post Staff firstname.lastname@example.org
BALTIMORE — In some ways it was similar, with the most common threads being the team unity and the remarkable athleticism of junior Jackie McNulty.
But the second consecutive state team title in track and field for the Oakdale girls, celebrated Saturday evening at Morgan State’s Hughes Stadium, was also remarkably different from the first.
The determined and long-limbed McNulty was, once again, an anchor for her team, this time producing three victories (triple jump, long jump and pole vault) and 30 points, as opposed to her one victory (triple jump) for 10 points a season ago.
But the rest of the Bears’ 85 points, good for a two-point win in Class 2A over second-place Boonsboro, came in a variety of new ways, some of which were entirely unexpected. Read More
