Benson Track Team
Comes On Strong
Last year the varsity track team did something it
hadn't done in a long while, it captured second place in
the City Championship. Coach Leon McKenzie, in his
first year as coach, led his team to within two points of
the City title, losing to Grant 68 to 70. Coach McKenzie
blames a dropped baton in the 400 meter relay for
Benson's inability to capture the title.
The team was strong in all areas from the sprints to
the field events. Andre Scott 1111 and Seniors Darryl
Stiff, and Bryant Scott were among the best sprinters
in the city, all of them able to do the 100 meters in 11
seconds or less. Nathan Hult 1121 was the best distance
runner in the city and Peter Pritchett 1101 was among
the best in the distances. The best all-around runner
was probably Eric Shamsud-Din 1121 who performed
excellently in the sprints, the middle distances, and the
ln the field events sophomore Todd Davis was
strong in the shot put and Stuart Eivers 1111 was
competitive in the javelin.
