Track & field

Cavs’ Lampkin named top female athlete: Daija Lampkin of Middletown High was recently named the Gatorade Delaware Girls’ Track & Field Athlete of the Year. The 5-foot-2 senior broke the tape in the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.85 seconds, the 200-meter dash in 23.76 seconds and anchored the winning 4×200 relay at the Division I state championships this past season.

The state’s returning Gatorade Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Year, Lampkin holds state records in the 100, 200 and 400. She placed second in the 200 at this month’s New Balance Nationals Outdoor in 23.80, and finished seventh in the 100.

A member of the National Honor Society and a sports medicine assistant to the school’s athletic trainer, Lampkin has also volunteered locally on behalf of her church and a food bank.

“Daija Lampkin is the best female track athlete to ever come through Middletown High School,” said Middletown coach Mary Kay Waltemire. “She sets her goals high, both on and off the field, and she gives it all she has to obtain those goals.”

Lampkin has maintained a weighted 4.26 GPA in the classroom. She has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete in track and field on scholarship at the University of Alabama this fall.

Howard’s Rosembert earns state honor: Edwin Rosembert of Howard High was named the Gatorade Delaware Boys’ Track & Field Athlete of the Year.

The 5-foot-8, 153-pound senior won three individual championships and anchored the winning 4×400-meter relay at the Division II state meet this past season, leading the Wildcats to second place as a team. Rosembert won the 100-meter dash in 10.84 seconds, the 200-meter dash in a state-record 21.36 and the 400-meter dash in 49.46. He also captured the 200 at the state Meet of Champions in 21.48.

A member of the National Honor Society, Rosembert has volunteered on behalf of a local hospital.

“Eddie not only has tremendous talent, but also a mental quality that sets him apart,” said Howard coach Nick Palka. “His focus is clearly at a higher level than most, and he is able to set his mind on a goal and just go after it.”

Rosembert has maintained a 3.47 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete on an athletic scholarship at Delaware State University this fall.
