Vaughan Leads Hockaday at SPC Meet
Adoette Vaughan shared a big weekend with her Hockaday classmates at the SPC spring championships.
Vaughan, a junior, won gold medals in all four of her track and field events, claiming individual titles in the 800, 1,600, 3,200, while also anchoring a thrilling victory in the 4×800 relay.
She wasn’t the only standout for the Daisies, who finished second behind Kinkaid in the team standings in the meet at St. Mark’s.
Sophie Isom won the 400, was second in the 200, placed third in the long jump, and was part of runner-up relay quartets in the 4×100 and 4×400. Justice Coutee-McCullum came in second in the 100 and third in the 200. And Caroline Forbess placed second in the 3,200 and third in the 1,600.
Greenhill finished third as a team, with multiple medal winners including Katherine Goodwin (second in 100 hurdles, second in pole vault, third in high jump), Megan Olomu (second in long jump and third in 400), and Sola Omonije (second in high jump, third in triple jump).
In boys track, Greenhill junior Jacob Herrscher won the pole vault and finished second in the 110 hurdles. ESD senior Nick Greenberg was first in the triple jump.
Meanwhile, St. Mark’s placed third in the team standings behind a trio of podium finishes including Clay Morris (high jump), Seun Omonije (long jump), and Zach Gilstrap (discus).
Daisies claim lacrosse title
Hockaday avenged a loss to ESD in last year’s SPC girls lacrosse championship game by winning the rematch 16-8 on ESD’s home field.
It marked the first title since 2014 for the Daisies (13-2), who outscored opponents by a combined 55-14 in three games in the tournament.
In boys lacrosse, ESD rolled to a 10-2 victory over rival St. Mark’s and earned its fifth consecutive SPC crown — including three straight wins over the Lions in the title game.
Hornets upset in boys tennis
Despite playing on its home court, Greenhill saw its five-year run of SPC championships come to an end following a 3-2 loss to Houston Christian, who was the runner-up a year ago.
The Hornets advanced to the final with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over St. Mark’s in the semifinals. The Lions later won the third-place match.
