West Forsyth HS
By Coach Andy Carr
The Eagle track teams again lowered some school records and set new top-10 school performance records as Milton was led by the Lady Eagles finishing runner-up at the Sawnee Mountain Invitational hosted by West Forsyth High School.
Milton (2nd-110 pts) bested 4 schools in finishing as the runners-up. Host West Forsyth (1st-237 pts) was the clear team champions. Leading the Lady Eagles was the new school record in the 4×200m relay (1st-1:49.20) which won the event outright and broke the old record by a full 3-seconds (1:52.22) that was set in 2012! Hayden Bendall, Nora Megenity, Jade Sutters & Jessica Sheinkopf won the fast section by just a half-second to snag the school record! Other top-10 marks achieved included Megenity in the triple jump (4th-32’-10.25”) moving from the 9th best to the 7th best all-time and Sutters in the long jump (1st-16’-7.5”) making her now the 5th best. Also helping lead the Lady Eagles were three event winners that included Genevieve Trainer in the 800m (1st-2:29.75), Ella Grace Malcom in the 3200m (1st-11:57.03) and the 8th best performance in school history by Farrah Frith in the 1600m (1st-5:18.00) which saw a Milton sweep of the top-3 spots! Following Frith were Megan Stechschulte (2nd-5:47.93) & captain Shelby Howerton (3rd-5:59.82).
Not to be outdone by their female counterparts, Milton ‘s boys re-set the 4×200m relay (1st-1:32.51) school record by more than a full second (old record 1:33.72) set in 2020. The team of Devin Dahunsi, Ethan Hagel, Ved Rao & Jack Lawson were also the clear winners of the race by close to 4 seconds! Other meet winners included Andrew Dassler who began his comeback from injury with a win in the pole vault (1st-13’-06”) and the boys 4×100m relay team (1st-44.14) that included Dahunsi/Rao/Lawson & Robert Billings. Dahunsi also won the triple jump (1st-42’7”) earlier in the meet before his runs on both winning relay teams.
The Eagle track teams next see action on Wednesday, March 2nd at Centennial for a dual meet and then will host the Milton Showcase on March 4th & 5th! The 2-day meet will see close to 14 schools compete at the Nest.

Milton Track & Field Opens Season at Roswell Invitational
4×200m Relays Highlight Eagle Effort
By Coach Andy Carr
The Milton Track & Field teams opened up their outdoor track season with the Swarm At the Nest meet hosted by Roswell HS and produced three new top-10 all-time marks in the 4×200m relay.
The Lady Eagles scored most of their team points from the distance runners as Milton (10th-39 pts) bested only 2 schools. Highlighting the girls were the runner-up finish by the 4×1600m relay team (2nd-23:27.70) consisting of Farrah Frith, Ella Grace Malcom, Genevieve Trainor & captain Shelby Howerton. The Lady Eagles had a few top-4 finishes individually including Sky Philpot in the discus throw (3rd-80’8”), Malcom in the 800m (3rd-2:26.22) & the girls 4×400m relay team (4th-4:33.35) of Jessica Sheinkopf, Megan Stechschulte, Leelah Dennis & Malcom coming back for her 3rd event of the meet! Even though not in the top-4, the girl’s 4×200m relay (11th-2:00.24) ran the 5th best performance in school history! That team included Hayden Bendall, Brynn Scheel, Maize Engbrecht & Leela Ravoori.
Milton (11th-27 pts) bested only two schools but were highlighted by the performances in the 4×200m relay and the 4×400m relay. The team of Rio Breedlove, Ved Rao, Jack Lawson & Devin Dahunsi finished 2nd in the 4×200m (2nd-1:34.07) running the 2nd best time in school history! Not to be out done, the “B” boys 4×200m relay team (8th-1:38.99) ran the 7th best performance in school history. The boys 4×400m relay team (3rd-3:44.44) also finished in the top-3 with Dahunsi, Lawson, Breedlove & Ethan Hagel to help pace the Eagle effort.
In a unique event hosted by this meet, Milton was able to WIN the 8×200m relay which was a co-ed event. The Eagles ran 3:55.20 for the distance beating three other programs.
The Milton track teams next see action at home with a junior varsity quad meet hosting Roswell, Alpharetta & Marist on Wednesday February 23rd and the varsity squad will travel to West Forsyth HS for the Sawnee Mountain Invitational on Saturday February 26th.
