Pitts honored for track performance
BRISTOL — Mount Abraham Union High School sophomore Lydia Pitts has been named the Vermont Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association’s Co-Athlete of the Year for Indoor Track. Rice Memorial’s Sonia John shared the honor with Pitts.
The coaches association chose Pitts, who competes during the winter indoor track season as an independent, after she set three Division II records at the D-II championship meet on Jan. 30 at Norwich University.
On that day, Pitts, already a two-time state championship hurdler in the spring of 2015, won the long jump in 17 feet; the triple jump in 35 feet, 8.75 inches; and the 55-meter hurdles in 9.15 seconds.
