Two weeks ago, Hallandale senior Regine Williams got into a car accident coming home from coaching at an Optimist practice.
Williams, who didn’t run for six days, won three of her four events as Hallandale placed second Wednesday night at the Class 3A Region 4 championship at Archbishop McCarthy High School.
“I was satisfied with the way things turned out,” Williams said. “To get up and walk away from that with the car being totaled is really a blessing. I’m just thankful I was able to run today.” It means a lot because when they saw the damage of the car they didn’t really think I was supposed to be walking again.” The Chargers were fueled by the duo of Williams and senior Lia King.
King captured the 100-meter hurdles and triple jump, while Williams bested Dillard senior Shakima Wimbley, the state runner-up last year in the 400-meter dash, by .09. She also won the 100-meter and long jump.
Blanche Ely’s boys’ team finished third overall — the highest of any Broward program — despite missing out on points from one of its top athletes.
Sophomore Steven Nesbitt, who twisted his ankle in the last dual meet, was unable to participate in the 110-meter hurdles, the high jump and 300-meter dash.
