Ocean Breeze Holiday Festival Meet Preview


Some top teams and individuals will make the trip to Ocean Breeze on Saturday for its Holiday Festival. The meet is LIVE on MileSplit, too!

Check out some meet links and a preview, below:

BOYS' PREVIEW

It will be a quick turnaround for Germantown Academy's Kyle Garland. The senior had a big day at the Burdette Classic on Wednesday, but it looks like he'll return to action on Saturday. Garland is entered in both the 55 meter hurdles and the long jump. He's US#1 in the 55 meter hurdles, having run 7.25 this season. He hasn't competed in the long jump yet this season, but has an indoor PR of 22-11.25

The 55 meter dash will feature a pair of strong Pennsylvania sprinters in Hill-Freedman's Armonte Paulk and Springfield (Delco)'s Philip Shovlin. Paulk will return later for the 400 meters.

Strath Haven's Dayo Abeeb (PA#3) will look for a big day in the triple jump.


GIRLS' PREVIEW

Madison Langley-Walker is competing Friday at the Marine Corps Classic, but the Upper Dublin senior will also compete at Saturday's meet at Ocean Breeze. Langley-Walker is entered in both the 55 meter hurdles and the triple jump. Look for her to put down some big performances in both.

Saucon Valley's Talitha Diggs will be the one to watch from PA in the 55 meter dash and the 400 meters. The sophomore will square off with some talented sprinters from Bullis (MD).

We should see an interesting matchup in the 4x800 meter relay between Strath Haven, which ran a PA#1 9:31 last week, and Central Bucks West, which is loaded with talent. CB West's Julia Flood is one to watch in the 2 mile.

In throws, North Pocono's Jessica Slagus will aim for a big day. She's the top seed in both the shot put and the weight throw. In the weight, she is PA#2 and US#11.
