Wolfpack Track & Field Tri-Meet at WMA

May 7, 2011

At Wilbraham and Monson

Finally enjoying nice weather at a competition, the Hyde School Track and Field Team traveled to Wilbraham and Monson Academy to participate in a tri-meet.  While the boys’ record fell to 15-2, the girls earned one of their best performances of the season, even with the small roster of athletes.

The Hyde School Boys  Track and Field Team did not have the strong performances typical of the team.  Even so, the WolfPack had solid performances from athletes committed to improvement.  Marcos Mercado ’14 earned his personal best time in the 1500 meter run, placing third.  Dan Weintraub ’12 also ran a personal best while earning second place in the 800 meters.  Apache He ’12 and Thomas Nixon ’14 both ran at their best to earn third and fourth respectively in the 100 meter dash, and the same place finishes in the triple jump, adding great contributions to the Hyde score.  Mac McGuire ’11 continued his excellent 400 meter races, taking first place in the event, as well as a fourth place finish in the 800 meter run.  Justen Wilson PG rounded out the scoring with a third place finish in the discus and first place points in the shot put.

The Hyde School Girls Track and Field Team showed that a limited roster is not an obstacle when incredible effort and commitment to improvement is present.  Katie Mehiel ’14 showed her determination with a third place finish in the 400 meter run.  Rianna Arellano ’12demonstrated her improvement in the long jump, adding second place points for the WolfPack.  Rachael Weyhe ’12 contributed with a fourth place finish in the 300 meter intermediate hurdles and second place in the triple jump.  Lori Allen ’11 added second place points with her strong 100 meter dash.  Woman of the meet went to Mari Barnett ’11.  After a determined week of practice, Barnett earned her season best time and first place finish in the 300 meter intermediate hurdles.  More impressively, she crushed her own school record in the 100 meter high hurdles by nearly half a second, taking an exciting first place in that event as well.  The team looks to continue improving and reducing times with the league championship just a week away.
