The boys and girls track teams came home from the 2019 New England championships with two individual titles and a new school record.
Olivia King ’19 finished first in the pole vault with a height of 9’, and Dubem Anwunah ’20 won the high jump with a height of 6’ 5”, sending retiring coach Charlie Bell off in fine fashion.
On the track, the highlight for the day was Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff ’19, who set a new school record in the 1500m run with a time of 4:02.32. Sidamon-Eristoff bested his own record which he had set the previous week at Founders.
Overall, the girls finished seventh and the boys eighth at the event, held at Loomis. The final places were a mirror image of their result from last year.
Other standout performances for the girls included Hyla Mosher ’19, who finished third in the 300m hurdles, fifth in the long jump, and ran in the 4x400m relay. Maddie Rego ’19 also placed fourth in the javelin.
For the boys, other high individual finishes included Anwunah with a fourth-place finish in the discus, and Sidamon-Eristoff placing fourth in the 800m run.
