A pair of state champs are back, but challengers abound in the 100 meters


Boys' 100 Meter Preseason Rankings By Classification: AAA | AA | Independent

The race is on for the 100 meter state crown this spring in both Class AAA and AA and both should be hotly contested. While the AAA state champ and the AA state champ return, neither are show-ins for a repeat. Expect this to be one of the most exciting events in the state this season.

In AAA, Meadville's Area's Journey Brown returns to the fray. Brown, a future Penn State running back, is the reigning state champion in the event, running 10.62 last year. He followed that up with a state title in the 60 meters this indoor season. Brown will look to close out his track career on a high note with yet another state crown.

It won't come easy, though. Coatesville's Terrance Laird, the state champ in the 200 meters, will be chasing some fast times this season. Laird, who ran 10.45 in AAU over the summer, has the potential to contend in the 100 meters this spring. Downingtown East's Jeremy Jennings took third in the 100 meter final last spring. He had a big indoor season that included a second place finish to Brown at the states 60 meter final. Jennings, a senior, will definitely look to move up to the state's top spot this season.

Downingtown East's Brassir Stocker, Nazareth Area's Julian Liaci, and Armstrong's Zane Dudek are among the returnees from last year's state final. Stocker transferred to East from Coatesville. Dudek rushed for 2,955 on Armstrong's football team this past fall and the Yale commit should be a factor on the track this year.

Ambridge Area's Isaac Elliott was a state qualifier in the 200 meters last spring. He had a huge winter, racking up some big times in the sprints. It ended in injury at the indoor state meet, so Elliott, a senior, will be on a mission this spring. Imhotep's Kristian Marche was third in the state in the AA 100 meters last spring. His team moves to AAA this season and the junior, along with his teammate Ade Jones-Roundtree should be serious AAA factors this season.

In AA, we've got a real shot at a four-peat. Bloomsburg's Jahvel Hemphill took home 100 meter state titles as a freshman, sophomore, and junior. This spring, he'll look to make it four-for-four. Last year, Hemphill battled injuries for a good deal of the season, but it all came together when it mattered most and he walked away a state champ.

Austin Kratz of Dock Mennonite will provide a great challenge to Hemphill's four-peat hopes. Kratz was the AA state champ in the 200 meters and the runner-up in the 100 meters last spring. Kratz had a big winter season and will look to move up to the top spot this time around in the 100 meters. Other returning state finalist last season in AA are Beaver Falls' Derrell Carter and Hickory's Dozie Ezi-Ashi

Other 100 meter returners to watch out for this season include North Allegheny's Ayden Owens, Muhlenberg's Najee Smith, Harry S. Truman's Sayyid Saunders, and Bishop Shanahan's Keegan Hughes. Check out the top 500 returnees in the boys' 100 meters and watch an interview with Hemphill after the state meet last spring below:
