Saint Louis’ Roman Wilson and Kamehameha-Hawaii’s Chenoa Frederick won the boys and girls 100-meter dash finals at the Island Movers/HHSAA Track and Field State Championships on Saturday at rainy War Memorial Stadium in Wailuku, Maui.
Wilson ran a 10.68 seconds, which is five-hundredths of a second slower than the state-meet mark of 10.63. The 10.68 is the best in Hawaii in 2019.
“Blessed to be out here,” Wilson said. “I ran my best, that’s all I can say.”
A day earlier, Wilson was part of a record-setting 4×100 relay team with Keanu Wallace, Korvin Feagins and Keola Yadao. They did it in 41.54.
Seabury Hall’s Noah Payne took second in 10.86 and appeared to hurt his hamstring at the end. He and Wilson both ran a 10.70 previously this season.
Frederick won on the girls side in 12.56. MacKenzie Reed of Mililani was second in 12.71.
Frederick is a double winner so far. She won the long jump with a leap of 18 feet, 2.75 inches on Friday.
“Happy with how it turned out, considering that I’ve been dealing with injuries this year,” Frederick said. “I’m grateful for all my competitors as well because without them, I wouldn’t be here.”
