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.

• District 16-7A semifinal — St. Thomas Aquinas 10, Cooper City 3: The Raiders scored six in the first inning to build a cushion with Alec Bryd (7-1) earning the victory on the mound. The lefthander struck out 10 batters and the Raiders advance to Friday’s district 16-7A finals against Nova.

• District 25 final — Deerfield Beach 12, Monarch 6: It took four overtimes, but Deerfield Beach came away with a district championship victory over previously unbeaten Monarch at Deerfield Beach Wednesday night.
Tied at six after stopping Monarch (12-1) in the fourth overtime, Stefaterra Boykins scored on a one-yard touchdown run to give the Bucks the win.
The Miami Hurricanes’ improbable climb to No. 2 in the Associated Press poll and run to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament weren’t enough to sway four-star 6-9 forward Demetrius Henry.
Inside the Oakland Park Northeast High auditorium Wednesday, Henry ended the suspense of a decision that was delayed a week by announcing he will play for the South Carolina Gamecocks.
• A few more of Broward County’s best boys’ basketball players were named to the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches’ All-State teams.
Blanche Ely senior Dallas Cameron and Northeast senior Malik Price-Martin each earned first team honors for Class 7A. Deerfield Beach’s Terrence Johnson earned first team honors for Class 8A.
Junior guard Lance Tejada and senior forward Khalil Thomas also represented Ely on the Class 7A second team. Joining them on second team was St. Thomas Aquinas senior Steven Haney.
Johnson, who led the Bucks to the state final four, also had teammate Marcus Owens make the Class 8A third team.
Pembroke Pines Charter had two players — senior Justin Satchell and sophomore Prince Ali earn second team honors in Class 6A.
