WATKINSVILLE — Charles Dimnwaobi accounted for 40 points to help the Riverside Military track and field team to capture the Class A Private Area 2 championship.

The three-day event was held at Athens Academy with the track finals on Saturday.

The Eagles finished with 151 points to easily outdistance second place Hebron Christian (118.5) and third place Athens Academy (115). Tallulah Falls took fourth with 84.5 points and Wesleyan was fifth with 53 points.

Dimnwaobi individually pulled the always-tough sprint double gold by winning both the 100-meter and 200-meter runs. He also anchored the 4x100 meter relay gold-medal winning team and was the third-leg of the winning 4x400 meter relay team.

James Bruebeck also had a solid meet taking second in the pole vault and fifth in the discus.

In the high jump, Riverside took the top two spots with Jareus Bong Dibongue winning the event with a leap of 6-00.00 to edge out teammate Daniel Bennant-Blake, who topped out at  5-10.00.

Bong Dibongue also took sixth in the long jump just behind teammate Isaac Teasly, who finished fifth. That pair would also finish 1-2 in the triple jump with Teasly winning the event with a jump of 43-02.00. Bong Dibongue was just a fraction behind for second with a jump of 43-01 to take second.

The Eagles No. 1 4x100 meter relay team held off Hebron Christian No. 1 to grab gold with a time of 43.83 with Demarko Hooper starting it off and Demaldi Lasisi and Antonio Copeland followed with Dimnwaobi anchoring the team. Demarko later would grab individual gold winning the 300-meter hurdles in 41.93, nearly two seconds faster than the second place finisher. Copeland took third in the 300 hurdles.

The Eagles’ Ebube Alfred-Igbokwe finished fifth in the shot put. Leland Breskow took fifth in the 1600 meter run. In the 400 meters, Teasly took third with Demaldi finishing fourth.

In the 100 meters, Dimnwaobi sprinted to a 10.98 finish while Copeland finished third less than half-a-second behind. Dimnwaobi also won the 200 meters with a run of 22.08 

In the 110-meter hurdles, Hooper came in third and Stephen Aleandre took fifth for Riverside. In the 800 meters, Breskow took seventh.

The 3200 meter run was the only event the Eagles did not place a top-eight scoring finisher in the meet.

The Eagles No. 1 4x400 meter relay team also took the top hardware with a run of 3:28.05 to second place Tallulah Falls by just under a second. Demaldi led off followed by Copeland and Dimnwaobi with Teasly closing out the run.
