Tionna Tobias’ sprint-hurdles double leads Winslow girls to 6th indoor state title in 8 years!!!!!

There’s no slowing down the Winslow steamroller!

The Winslow girls won their second straight state Group 3 indoor state championship and their sixth in the last eight years, outscoring second-place Ramapo, 43-26.

In all Winslow has won eight indoor titles, plus a ninth as Edgewood. Only Columbia, with 10 titles from 1983 through 2014, has won more indoor girls state titles than Winslow.

As she has been so many times over the years, tireless senior Tionna Tobias starred for the Eagles with a fast dash-hurdles double.

Tobias won the 55-meter dash in 7.24 after a PR 7.23 in the trials and won the highs in 8.20, only 4-100ths off her PR of 8.16, set last winter in the Meet of Champions.

The state titles are Tobias’s fourth and fifth but her first on the track. The others came in the long jump and high jump.

Tobias’s best event, the long jump, isn’t contested at the indoor state meet, but she’ll have the chance to jump at Eastern’s next week. She was ranked 27th nationally last spring at 19-11 1/2.

Winslow also got points from junior Janeya Hammond [3rd in 400 in 59.43, 5th in 55, 7.37], freshman Jaia James [6th in 55, 7.39] and the 1,600-meter relay team, which ran 4:01.40.
