Throughout the history of South Pointe, there has been an abundance of Track and Field individuals who have qualified for the state title. Senior Quinest Bishop, who has qualified for three events, has been to state three times and is familiar on what he needs to do to pull out a win.

Bishop said, “I work out constantly with my dad and coaches early morning workouts at 6 a.m. and practiced at school, so that’s a lot of conditioning. It’s hard but it always pays off at the end.”

Not only does this upcoming event push athletes to finish strong, it pushes them to have a positive attitude about their journey to state.

“I feel accomplished for qualifying for two events because my relay teams have been working hard all year and improved each time that we run. Just knowing that we are in the top eight in both of our relay teams is satisfying,” said Junior Riley Moore, who is competing in the four by 100 relay and the four by 400 relay.

Over 10 Stallions have qualified for 15 events, ranging from freshman Haley Bishop competing in the 100M Dash and junior James McKinney competing in the 400M Hurdles.

With all these ambitious individuals competing for a state title, the team is bound to come home with numerous champions.

“If I won, it would put my name out there and bring attention to myself; however, just being able to compete in the state meet and compete with some of the other best throwers in the state means a lot and I hope to compete again next year,” said qualifier for the Discus Throw Adisan Funke.

The meet will be on May 12th and 13th at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, SC.
