Game of the week
TrackNaples, Aviano, Vicenza, Marymount, Wiesbaden, Vilseck at Stuttgart Saturday DODEA-Europe’s Italian track programs make their lone regular-season trip outside the country with a visit to the southern German home of the Stuttgart Panthers, bringing enough talent with them to make a major impact just three weeks before returning for the European championship meet May 25-26 at Kaiserslautern. The Naples boys, featuring standout relay units and a core of powerful shot put performers, have taken first place in every meet this season. Wildcat senior Austin McKamey, a top-10 finisher in the high jump at last year’s finals, remains a force in that event. Naples’ rival Vicenza has largely seized control of the girls side in Italy; the Cougars’ first-place finish Saturday was their second in three meets. Senior sprinter Brandy James, the 2017 European runner-up in the 100-meter dash, again ranks among the DODEA-Europe elite.
