VUHS track team wins three golds at D-III meet

WINDSOR — Vergennes Union High School athletes won three events at Saturday’s Division III track and field championship meet, hosted by Windsor High School.
Ezekiel Palmer, a senior, won the 400-meter race and joined sophomores Ben Huston and Xander DeBlois and senior Wade Mullin in claiming the boys’ four-by-400 meter relay.
Mullin joined Huston, junior Erich Reitz and sophomore Gabe Praamsma to prevail in the 4×800 relay as the Commodore boys excelled in the middle distances.
Mullin also finished second at 800 meters, while Huston was fifth in the 1,500 to account for all 40 of the VUHS boys’ points on the day.
That total was good enough to put the Commodore boys sixth in the 12-team D-III field, just behind fifth-place Mill River (44). Thetford (141), Springfield (86) and Oxbow (79) ran 1-2-3.
On the girls’ side the lion’s share of the Commodore points came from a second-place effort posted by the 4×100 team of freshman Rhode Miguel, seniors Cedar Winslow and Ciara McClay and junior Amber Krumrie.
The VUHS girls also picked up points from three fifth-place efforts: Winslow in the 200, senior Emma Bryant in the javelin, and the senior quartet of Olivia Hawkins, Marin Howell, Ashley Cray and Winslow in the 4×400 relay.
The Commodore girls’ 14 points were good for 10th place. Thetford edged Woodstock, 126-125 for first place, and Mill River (68) was third. Top-six finishes scored points.
