Both the Camden High boys and girls track teams are off to strong starts to the year and they are making preparations for a strong showing at the Region 4-AAA championship meet to be held later this month. 
The boys won their second meet of the year against perennial track power Chapin, Newberry and Mid-Carolina. The Bulldogs are led by senior twins Josh and Jordan Sumpter, who combine forces to lead the 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 relay teams. Josh also runs the 100- and 200-meters and Jordan is currently the top 400-meter runner in 3A according to SCRunners.com. 
“Jordan is not only an elite runner, but his work ethic and positive habits are great examples for our younger runners,” said CHS coach Angie Brennen.
Omar Mingo is the defending conference champion in the triple jump and is also long jumping this year. Omar James has led the throwers and other top performers include George Randolph, Carlos Williams, Welton Cauthen, Parker Robinson, DJ Wilson, Ben Hayes and Tyrel Smith.
Not to be outdone by the Sumpters, the Lady Bulldogs are led by their own set of twins, eighth graders Heather and Caroline Woolard.  Heather is an outstanding triple jumper, long jumper and 400 runner, while Caroline is the top 800-meter runner and also becoming a top 1,600-meter runner. Darlasia Salmond is the top sprinter running the 100, 200 and a key member of the 4 x 400 relay team.  The throwers are led by the trio of Brianna Goodwin, Dayjoi Belton and Kentrell Salmond.  The girls are getting solid performances from Makaila Allen, Tajz Boyd, Olivia Williams, Kadrea Ferguson, Ariyan Massey, Alesia Davis, Abby McLaughlin and Stephanie Areford.
The pole vault has become an exciting addition to the track team. Morgan Wilson qualified for the AAA girls’ state meet last year while Ryan Kelly and Lindsay Pierce placed second at the recent Mello Mushroom Relays in Wando.
