Tigers, Eagles vie in D-II state track and field meet

SOUTH BURLINGTON — The Middlebury boys’ and girls’ and Mount Abraham boys’ track and field teams posted some strong individual results while collectively finishing in the middle of the pack in Saturday’s Division II high school championship meet, hosted by South Burlington High School.
Pole vaulters Gabe Cason of MUHS and Oliver Roy of Mount Abe fared the best. Both cleared the winning height of 10 feet, six inches in the boys’ event, but settled for a second-place tie behind Milton’s Zac St. Amour based on fewer misses.
Also earning individual seconds in boys’ events were Tiger hurdlers Nicholas Suchomel and Hunter Heffernan in the 110- and 300-meter hurdles, respectively.
Eagle throwers fared well on the boys’ side. Nevin Jemison took third in the discus and fifth in the javelin, and Peter Koenig finished third in the discus. Tiger sprinter Anthony Garner picked up fourths in the boys’ 100m and 200m.
In girls’ events the Tiger four-by-400-meter relay team of Ailey Bosworth, Hannah Turner, Natali Sullivan and Isabel Olson finished second, and the MUHS 4×100 and 4×800 teams also placed. Olson also posted top-six finishes at 800 and 1,500 meters, and Merry Kimble placed in the 300 hurdles.
The best individual finish for the Tiger girls’ team came from Michelle Skovsgard, who took third in the javelin.
Eagle pole vaulter Lucy Guy scored the only points for her team by finishing sixth in the pole vault.  
Bellows Falls swept both the boys’ and girls’ titles. On the boys’ side the Terriers racked up 127 points to outpace U-32 (103) in second and Hartford (82) in third. MUHS (29) was sixth, and Mount Abe (23) finished eighth in the 15-team field.
The Bellows Falls girls edged second-place Rice, 107-105, with Hartford (78) again in third. The MUHS girls took ninth with 23 points. Top-six finishers scored for their teams.
