To follow up what was an incredible year for the Roosevelt track and field team; both the boys and girls have now been recognized for their efforts in the classroom.

The Michigan Interscholastic Track Coaches Association has named both the boys and girls each as a Division 1 All-State Academic Team for 2014.

With a combined 3.477 grade point average, the boys earned their way onto the list, while the girls claimed their spot with a combined 3.387 GPA.

Only five other Division 1 schools made the cut on the girls’ side and just eight others made it on the boys’ side.

Last month, the boys and girls won the combined trophy at The News-Herald Track & Field Championships, as the boys came in first place and the girls took second for the day.

About two weeks later, the boys won the Downriver League Meet and the girls placed second at the event.

At the MITCA Meet in late May, Kyanna Evans of Roosevelt had the best local finish on the girls’ side, as she took second in the 300m hurdles (47.60).

The boys later went on to win their first regional title in 41 years and the team was heavily represented at the state meet.

Earning all-state were the boys’ 4x400 relay and 4x100 relay teams at the state meet, finishing fifth and sixth, respectively, and both in school-record times. The 4x400 (3:21.14) team was Darryl Couch, Danny May, Eric Tyson and D’Aries Davis and the 4x100 (42.67) group was Dillon Walsh, Damon Singleton, Brandon Sowards and Couch.

Finishing 12th in the 4x200 relay (1:29.70) was Singleton, Sowards, D’Aries Davis and Couch, while D’Aries Davis competed in the 300m hurdles (40.52), Dominic Davis ran in the 3,200m (10:03.15) and on the girls’ side freshman Maggie Pawelczyk competed in the 3,200m (11:18.65).
