The Washington Pam Pack track teams made it a clean sweep at Northside on Thursday.
The boys posted a 101-31 victory.
The girls earned their first win of the year, outscoring Northside 59.5 to 45.5.
William Ellegor qualified for regionals in the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.09 seconds, which was good enough for second place. Ellegor also took second in the long jump (19 feet, 10 inches).
“William Ellegor has been one of our most dependable athletes,” Washington coach Jon Blank said.  “He put in a lot of hard work to get his times down in the sprints, so he is very deserving of qualifying in the 100 today.  It is very appropriate that he and Raheam Patterson are our first qualifiers of the season (he qualified yesterday in the 200), because they are cornerstones of this team right now.”
Josh Brown took first in the 110 (16.05) and 300 (44.28) hurdles.
Dylan Mizelle also captured a pair of firsts, coming in the 1,600 (5:08) and the 800 (2:28).
Also taking firsts were Raheam Patterson in the 200 (23.32), Kevin Chapman in the shot put (40-8), Forrest Latham in the discus (112-2), Malik Moore in the triple jump (34-11) and all four relay teams.
“This was a good day for our boys,” Blank said.  “We went out focused, shuffled some lineups around, and took care of business.  We now have to pass a huge test next week against a very strong West Carteret team.”
For the girls, Janell Griffin was first in the 100 hurdles (16.63, which qualifies for regionals), first in the 300 hurdles (55.25), and first in the long jump (14-3).
“Janell Griffin has worked very hard and is really starting to stand out,” Blank said.  “I’m extremely proud of her for qualifying for regionals today, and I think we still have yet to see her best.”
Yasmine Horton was first in the 100 (13.62) and second in the 200 (30.88).
Shelby Nall earned a pair of firsts, coming in the 1,600 (7:05) and in the 800 (3:16)
Haley Hiatt took top honors in the 200 (29.29) and was second in the 100 (13.92).
Alexus Spencer finished second in the high jump (4-7), second in the 100 hurdles (17.86) and second in the 300 hurdles (58.58)
“I’m really happy for the girls to go out and get a win today,” Blank said.  “We’ve talked so much about individual success with them this year while we build up the number of girls we have, that it’s refreshing to experience some team success.”
