On March 21, the West Ashley High School boys’ track team competed at the Mellow Mushroom Relays hosted by Wando High School. At the event, the Boys’ Team competed against 20 other schools. In the 4×100-meter relay, Wildcats Malik Thompkins, T’Qele Holmes, Kenneth Thomas, and Darrell Singleton came in first place and set a new school record by coming in at 42.32 seconds.
What makes this accomplishment even more special for the Boys’ Track Team is that they decided before racing that they were going to beat the previous record and dedicate the race to Master Chief Timothy Strickland, the school’s NJROTC Instructor who recently passed away.
“They worked hard to get where they are. Breaking the school record is a testament to their work ethic and perseverance,” said assistant track coach Austin Miller.
Then last week at a track meet in Summerville, they did it again, breaking their own school record, finishing at 41.84.
The foursome is currently ranked #1 in the state and  #37 in the nation.
