WENDELL -- Rosewood's girls and Goldsboro's boys emerged the "unofficial" team champions during the season-ending Carolina/Northern Carolina 1-A/2-A indoor track and field meet contested at Corinth-Holders High School on Thursday afternoon.

The Eagles, who had just one individual champion, emerged the top-scoring Carolina 1-A team with 67 points. The Cougars, who had two gold medalists, amassed 83 points.

Corinth-Holders swept the 2-A team titles.

Rosewood's Anna Ingram won the shot put with a toss of 29 feet, 4 inches -- one inch longer than Corinth-Holders' Brenda Whitaker. Teammate Alysse Atwell was the runner-up in the 55-meter dash and triple jump.

"That was a dogfight between Anna and that girl from Corinth," Rosewood head coach Daniel Baynes said. "It was a really tough day with the wind for the runners."

Goldsboro's Rasheid Malette won the high jump with a leap of 5-8. Teammate Jaleel Cook bested the 500-meter dash field with a time of 1:12 -- one second faster than Corinths' Kendrick Cobb.

Spring Creek's Carlos Osorio won the shot put with a distance of 40-5. Rosewood's Fouad Ismail finished second, followed by Goldsboro's Bernard Cannon and Spring Creek's Martavious Brigham.

Princeton had three individual champions -- Jordan Keene (pole vault), Jamaal Allen (55-meter hurdles) and Cam McDougald (55-meter dash).
