Ava Shipman’s appetite for running, and winning races, is abnormally high this time of year, accomplishing feats once considered harmful to a runner’s health.

Pushed to her limits Saturday, the Seabury Hall middle-distance runner robotically circled the Yamamoto Track & Field Facility with purpose and plan few others in the Maui Interscholastic League would consider, given appropriate rest between events instead of the few minutes currently separating her victories.

For the fifth time in two seasons, the unbeaten Shipman executed a rare quadruple at the finals of the 63rd annual Maui Interscholastic League’s Satoki Yamamoto Invitational, winning the girls 1,500-, 800- and 3,000-meter runs, and then capping off the team title by anchoring the Spartans’ winning 4 x 400-meter relay.

Shipman’s team-high 32.5 points helped the Seabury girls win its their sixth straight Yamamoto championship, which began with the school’s first ever team title in the sport in 2011. The Spartans outscored runner-up Baldwin, 142 to 117, with seven underclassmen.

On the boys side, Baldwin literally ran away with the team title on the strength of La’akea Kahoohanohano-Davis’ three wins in the jumps and his blistering first leg of the Bears’ winning 4 x 100 relay team.

The Bears scored a record 197 points to easily win the boys championship and Kahoohanohano-Davis was named the most outstanding male athlete.

The most outstanding female athlete was Baldwin junior Kaitlin Smith, who scored a girls-division high 38 points, for her three gold medals and one silver. Smith opened with a new meet record of 15.16 seconds in the 100 hurdles. She also won the long jump in 17 feet, 10 1/2 inches and the triple jump in 36-6 1/4. She also finished second to Maui High’s Alyssa Mae Antolin in the 100, 12.57 to 13.08.

In addition, Smith just missed breaking the meet record of 36-6 1/2 in the triple jump by 1/4 inch.

“That was kind of heartbreaking,” Smith said of missing the record. “I wanted to come out today and try an break it but I guess I didn’t stretch good enough last night and I came out and my muscles were tight and I think I may have strained my quad.”

Shipman’s competitive spirit and positive attitude at practice is rubbing off on her teammates, Seabury head coach Bobby Grossman said.

“I was pretty proud of how they all managed to step up. For some athletes, who haven’t been in this position before, to have to do four events can be tough.

“I think it’s pretty special for them to come out this early in the season and perform the way they did. To go out there and run top times in the state and have to do it over and over and over again. I thought we did really well.”

Grossman said Shipman’s work ethic is the backbone of the team’s success.

“She pushes herself in the workouts and it shows how it has affected the rest of the team. Because not only has Ava done a triple or quadruple, but Veronica has also done it now. I’ve been trying to push the attitude of this team, that you have to score points and you have to do it at a high level.”

On Saturday, sophomore Veronica Winham finished second to Shipman in all three individual events and then helped the team shave seven seconds off its 4 x 400 relay, which currently ranks No. 3 in the state.

Shipman, a junior, now owns the fastest 1500 in the state at 4:52.47 and she is No. 2 in the 800 at 2:22.83. Winham recorded her best times in both events chasing her teammate.

“I think it just speaks volumes about the team and the team effort. For Ava to do it as a 10th grader last year and now to have Veronica doing it as a 10th grader is pretty good to see.”

Newcomer Darby Mulligan, a sophomore, stayed on Winham’s heels in the 1500 and 3000, to finish fourth and third, respectively.

Seabury outscored Baldwin 64-3 in the three events — 1500, 800, and 3000 — Shipman and Winham dominated. The pair also run the third and fourth legs of the 4 x 400 relay, while freshman Maile Doughtery and junior Claire Borthwick make up the first 800.

Other double winners in the girls division included Maui High’s Antolin in the sprints. The freshman won the 100 in 12.57 and the 200 in 26.08. Kihei Charter’s Maya Reynolds was first in the 400 at 58.96, but second to Antolin in the 200 (26.25).

Smith is still dusting off the cobwebs from soccer, said Baldwin girls head coach Keoni Tengan.

“We wanted to take it easy before putting her in the 300 hurdles. So right now we are pleased with her performances thus far, she’s just a little anxious. Hopefully with more strength and conditioning and being healthy, she’ll continue to improve.”

Smith said her desire to break Lusk’s record in the high hurdles was personal.

“One of my teachers, that’s her daughter, and she always talks about it. So I’ve wanted to break it for awhile. For only my second time hurdling I was pleased with my time.”

Smith is currently No. 2 in the state in the 100 hurdles, behind three-time state champion Emma Taylor (15.15) of Hawaii Preparatory Academy.

“I’ve been chasing her tail since my freshman year, so it would be great to come out on top this year,” Smith said of Taylor. “In the triple jump, I’m shooting for 37, maybe 38 feet if my legs will allow me to based on the injuries I’ve had this year. In the long jump, I’m shooting for the MIL record, which is 18-3 set by Alyssa (Bettendorf) a couple of years ago. And the state’s long jump record of 19-2 1/2, the oldest in the books.”

The girls state long jump mark was set by Shari Fox of Leilehua in 1979.
