POWHATAN -- Last July, Anthony Greenhow ran a blazing personal-record time of 21.31 seconds in the 200-meter dash during an electronically timed run on Powhatan High School’s track.
While that time - along with an incendiary 10.49 that Greenhow ran in the 100 dash on the same day - helped increase schools’ interest in him, it didn’t go down as a Powhatan High School record because it wasn’t run during an official meet.
Nearly a year later, Greenhow made sure that it did.
Barreling past his competitors at a blistering pace through the corner and setting sail down the front straightaway on his home track, the Powhatan High School senior and University of South Carolina signee ran yet another 21.31 to take first in the 200-meter dash during Powhatan High School’s Senior Day track and field home meet, which was held Wednesday.
Making Greenhow’s win even more special was the 1-2 finish that he and fellow senior teammate Aaron Nash delivered in the 200. Nash, who was a standout player for Powhatan football and also made a positive impact on Powhatan basketball this past winter, ran a time of 22.86.
Earlier in the day, Greenhow ran another school-record time of 10.64 to win the boys 100 dash. Nash added a fourth-place finish of 11.33 in the 100.
Also winning first place for Powhatan was senior Gavin Timmons, who dominated the boys 3200 run with a PR of 10:11.36. Also from Powhatan, freshman Sean Seibel took third place in the 3200 in 11:18.35, and sophomore Liam Clancy finished fourth in 14:06.98.
Asher Timberlake earned two podium finishes for Powhatan, placing third both in the boys discus with a throw of 112 feet, 8 inches, and in the boys shot put with a throw of 39 feet, 8 ¾ inches. Timberlake’s teammate and fellow junior Jack Altieri placed fifth in the shot put with a throw of 36 feet, 6 inches.
Mayson Jenkins led the girls with a podium finish as she took third in the girls 200 dash in 28.42.
