The Skyline boys and girls track teams each got third place in the 13-school Norwich Invitational last Friday. The boys piled up 70 points while the girls finished with 64.5. “It was a great meet, even with the wind,” head coach Summer Younie expressed. “We had personal bests up and down the line-up.”
Among those T-Birds setting PRs were high jumpers Dustin Weber 5-8, Josh Moore 5-0, Brady McComb 4-10 and Taylor DeWeese 4-8. In throws, Daniel Hacker PRd in javelin and shot put. Blake Lee also set a new personal standard in shot. High hurdlers Dustin Weber and Betsy Giles also hit new marks.
Although not getting any gold medals on the day, the Thunderbird boys scored in 13/18 events, spreading their points out among every category of events. The T-Birds tallied in every relay. “Our relays ran well,” Coach Younie acknowledged.
