For the girls, Lucy Secondo took first in the 100 meter dash. Sydnee Smith, Jackie Brown, and Lucy Secondo swept the shot put, finishing first, second, and third, respectively. We also won the 800 meter relay, the team consisting of Demi Mouillesseaux, Rhyleigh McFall, KC Poole, and Lucy Secondo. In addition, Demi took second in the 800 meter run and the triple jump, Rhyleigh took second in the high jump, KC took second in the 55 meter hurdles, and Olivia Secondo took second in the 1500 meter run.
The boys' team also had some great performances. John Garrison won both the 1500 meter run and the triple jump. Josh Menter was first in the 800 meter run and second in the discus. Liam Heiman won the 400 meter dash, with Calvin Ingram coming in second. The 400 meter relay team of Anthony Peters, Jonah Young, Josh Menter, and Cameron Squier took first in convincing fashion. In addition, Anthony came in second in the 55 meter hurdles, Cameron came in second in the 200 meter dash, and Korbyn Clarke came in second in the 800 meter run.
In spite of the cold, the athletes worked hard and didn't complain. We look forward to competing in warmer weather after the break!
