Episcopal junior Rachel Misher continued her assault on the District 6-2A track sprint records. Compiling 30 points each, the Stamey siblings swept the three distance races to help power the Knights to the boys and girls team titles at EHS on Wednesday.
Episcopal’s boys scored 207 points and the girls 234 points. Northeast was second in the boys (117) and girls (126). East Feliciana was third with 90 points in the boys, and Istrouma, with 71, was third in girls.
Misher set district records last season in the girls 100 and 200 meters. She bettered her district mark in the 100 meters by .12 seconds and finished in 11.58. She also anchored a record-setting 4x100 relay team that ran 48.81. Alex Dumas, Janelle Jones, Bria Johnson and Misher bettered the old mark of 50.93 set by Northeast in 1995.
“It was pretty amazing getting the records,” Misher said. “In the relay, everyone did well and our exchanges were on point. We feed off each other’s energy in the relays.”
Misher won the 200 in 25.73.
Bryan Stamey, a senior, and Alicia Stamey, a freshman, swept the distance titles. Bryan Stamey won the 1,600 in 4:48.82, the 800 in 2:03.75, and the 3,200 in 10:36.13. Alicia Stamey won the 1,600 in 5:24.01, the 800 in 2:33.01 and the 3,200 in 12:24.00.
“I’ve been coaching for nearly 40 years and I’ve never heard of a brother and sister sweeping the distance events in the same meet,” EHS boys coach Claney Duplechin said. “Bryan is really having a good season.”
“I was grateful for the opportunity to go out and run and help the team,” Bryan Stamey said.
“It was neat that Bryan and I were able to triple in the same meet,” Alicia Stamey said.
Alicia Stamey won the girls Outstanding Track performer. Bryan Stamey and Northeast’s LaChristopher Smith tied for the boys Outstanding Track Performer. Smith won the 100 (10.79), 200 (21.71) and 400 (51.30). Smith’s 200 time bettered the previous district record of 21.8 set by Clinton’s Richard Davis in 1996.
