Thursday, April 3, 2008 at Milwaukee South High School.
Charde Mayne from Riverside University HS won the triple and long jump events. Mayne is pictured in the triple jump [left] and the long jump [above rightl]. Mayne's winning jump in the LJ was 18' 03.50. Mayne's jump moved her into the second spot on the week 4 LJ HR list. Above center: Charletha Stewart from Bay View in the long jump event.
The 'pit crew' at South Division was kept busy. Pulaski athletes Amber Johnson and Brian Campbell made sure the pit was in good shape.
Milwaukee schools were divided with half the schools competing at North Divisions Field House while the other schools had their meet at the South Division's Field House [above]. Right before Charde Mayne jumped 17' 05.25, Marcus Jenkins from the Bradley Tech Boys Team leaped 22' 10.50. He was less than a foot from the end of the pit when he landed.
L-R: Rhonda Allen-Miller [Bradley Tech], Bay View's Denise Watson, Riverside University teammates Jennifer Blant and Ashley Tischendorf.
Bradley Tech was the champion of the Southside meet. The Trojans scored 118 points. Riverside finished in second with 98 points followed by Bayview, South Division, Pulaski/Arts, Madison and Hamilton.
