The Varsity Boys Indoor Track and Field team headed up to New Haven this Friday (12/19) to compete against individuals and teams from over 50 different towns across the state. The JV team headed up the next day for its own meet.
As the defending Class L State Champions, the team has much work to do in order to retain its title. However, the season is looking bright. Senior captain Mike O’Malley said that he thought that the invitation overall “went well! We went out hard, and put up good times for our first meet of the season. If this meet was any indicator of our performance for the rest of the season, I’d say we’re definitely in a good spot”.
Seniors Carter Ashcraft, Arthur Cassidy, O’Malley, Robby Arrix, juniors Kenny Yamaguchi, Santosh Krishnan, and sophomore Ben Hayes all participated in various events. The 4x00 relay team of Ashcraft, Cassidy, Arrix and Hayes placed 6th, as did Cassidy in the 800 m run and O’Malley in the shot put.
The boys definitely have success in the future to look forward to. Catch them at their next meet on January 3rd starting at 9:30 am when they compete in Wilton against various tough FCIAC competitors.
