County Championship Poll Results
By: Kevin Milsted

Between January 13 and January 20, conducted an open online poll. Note this poll was conducted before a performance list was available. Participants were instructed to select their favorites in each event and rank the top ten teams for the indoor county championship meet. 65 valid votes were used.

Below you will find the results. The county champion favorites are listed with the percentage of people that voted for them. The teams are listed in order based on the number of poll points received

The most well-rounded team in the county, Damascus will aim for the indoor county title with throwers, distance runners, and sprinters.

Gaithersburg will try to defend their county title with Al Kallay and other strong hurdlers and jumpers.

Northwest is favored to win seven of ten track events. Britt Eckerstrom could participate on all three relays

As always, fans predicted Olivia Ekpone to be the top individual point scorer, but is it realistic if she only competes in two open events?

Congrats to all the winners!! I wish someone would do something about the sound system at the PG Sportsplex. The sound was so bad I missed the excitment of all the records that were broken. Is it just me? DC
