TO CONGRATULATE THE STRATFORD HIGH SCHOOL BOYS TRACK AND FIELD TEAM ON WINNING THE 2022 BERKELEY COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE AND TO APPLAUD THESE FINE ATHLETES AND THEIR COACHES ON AN IMPRESSIVE SEASON.
Whereas, Stratford High School's boys track and field head coach, Stevan Harris, circles the Berkeley County track and field championships on his calendar every spring. He can add some gold stars to his 2022 calendar now, considering how his athletes performed while reeling in the team title at Cane Bay High School on April 20-21, 2022. The Stratford High boys, led by Coach Harris, won for the sixth straight time; and
Whereas, the Knights amassed 187.5 points, ahead of runner-up Philip Simmons. Stratford was clearly the best and deepest team, and that advantage served the team well; and
Whereas, Stratford's sweeping performance was led by winners Savionne Jones (boys 100 meters), Jackson Wagner (boys discus), and Jalen Barry (boys javelin); and
Whereas, in a sport that demands speed, precision, and stamina, Coach Harris maximized his own skills and experience to produce a championship-caliber team and teach his athletes lessons that will stand them in good stead throughout their lives; and
Whereas, proud of the recognition that the members of the Stratford boys track and field team have brought to their school and community, the South Carolina House of Representatives looks forward to hearing of their continued accomplishments in the days ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, congratulate the Stratford High School boys track and field team on winning the 2022 Berkeley County Championship title and applaud these fine athletes and their coaches on an impressive season.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Jayma Diaz and Head Coach Stevan Harris of Stratford High School.
