The Lakewood track trio of Shaquem and Shaquill Griffin and Tim Holmes added Gibbs’ Trayvon Bromell to form an all-star 4x100-meter relay at the Golden South meet.

The foursome ran past an impressive field to win the event in 40.29 seconds, the fastest time in the nation this year.

Bromell was not finished. The Gladiator sprinter set a meet record by winning the 100 in 10.27 seconds, surpassing the previous best of 10.29 set by Palmetto’s Curtis Johnson in 1991. The Griffin twins and Holmes were joined by American Heritage’s Khari Herbert on an all-star 4x400 that won in 3:15.07, the ninth-best time in the nation.

Shaquem won the triple jump (49-5 ¼) and was second in the long jump (22-0 ¼). Shaquill was second in the triple jump (48-5 ¾ ). Holmes was runnerup in both the 110 hurdles (14.07) and 400 hurdles (52.78).

St. Petersburg’s Cayman Ellis won the pole vault by clearing 15-6. Plant’s Julia Rodriguez took first in the 3,200 (10:53.23), and Hillsborough’s Jorian Ordway won the 400 in a personal-best 54.19 seconds.
