VUHS’ Mullin involved in nearly all 7 track banners
VERGENNES — Vergennes Union High School track and field runners unfurled seven championship banners during the school’s graduation ceremony, held on June 14 in VUHS’s main gymnasium.
Graduating senior Wade Mullin had a hand in six of those banners, two of them as an individual and four as a member of Commodore relay teams.
One banner honored Mullin for winning the Division III outdoor 800-meter championship in the spring of 2018, and another for winning the D-II indoor 600-meter race this past winter.
Another banner recognized senior Ezekiel Palmer for winning the D-III 400-meter championship this June.
Two more banners honored Commodore wins from this June’s D-III title meet. Both Palmer and Mullin ran with underclassmen Ben Huston and Xander DeBlois to prevail in the four-by-400-meter relay.
And Mullin joined Huston and underclassmen Erich Reitz and Gabe Praamsma to prevail in the 4×800 relay.
The final two banners came from this winter’s D-II indoor title meet. The 4×800 team of Mullin, Huston, Reitz and Praamsma set a new D-II record while winning gold, and senior Spencer Hurlburt joined Palmer, DeBlois and Mullin on the winning 4×400 squad.
