Kent’s Steward jumps into state record books

LANDOVER — This news is just too exciting to sit on until tomorrow.

Kent County High School senior Larry Steward established a Class 1A indoor record with his winning high jump of 6 feet, 4.25 inches today (Tuesday, Feb. 20) at the state championships.

He also improved upon his own school record that he set Feb. 9 at the 1A East Region indoor track meet at the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex in Landover.

It is believed that Steward is KCHS’ first indoor state champion in a field event.

Sophomore Rah Zir Wilson took third with a high jump of 5 feet, 10 inches, equaling the PR he achieved at the region meet.

Steward and Wilson are taking advantage of the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association’s new dual-sport option that allows athletes to play two sports in the same season. Basketball is their primary sport.

Also at the state championships Tuesday, junior sprinter Tyrell Fennell placed fifth in the 55 meters, 6.65 seconds; sophomore Ke’yare Hawkins was fifth in the shot put, 32 feet, 2.75 inches; and junior Gavin Larrimore was 15th in the shot put, 38 feet, 1 inch.

We’ll have a complete reporting of the state championship track meet later this week.
