Bath: Hyde Indoor Track – Friday’s Western Maine Conference Meet

Hyde’s Indoor Track program competed on Friday in our second meet of the week at the University of Southern Maine against our Western Maine Conference rivals.  It was an evening in which 1) virtually all our athletes achieved a personal record on the season, 2) we scored season high team meet points, and 3) one of our athletes was named the senior division MVP of the meet.

On the women’s side, Dexie Cercos `12 won the 55m hurdles (9.91… a PR), took second in the 200m (29.19) and placed 5th in the triple jump (30’ 1″… a PR).  Dexie was also named the women’s senior division MVP of the meet! Xi Wang `14 continued to surprise everyone with a 7th place… 30 second improvement… in the 1-mile (6:18.21).  She also scored 6th place for Hyde in the 2-Mile (13:57.9).  Mady Preece `13 took second place in the 400m dash (1:08.18) and scored a 6th place finish in the 200m 31.09… a PR).  Erika Corley `13 shaved 4 seconds off her mile time with a 14th place finish (7:00.47… a PR).  She also placed 8th in the 2-mile (15:34.41).

While unable to score for the team because of his 5th year status, Ben Webber `12 took second overall in the 55m (6.97) and placed 5th out of 41 in the 200m (24.74).  Isaac Pfosi `12 ran two sub 2:20 800m runs… one in the 4 x 800 relay (a 2nd place finish and seasonal PR), and the other in a 9th place finish in the open 800m (2:19.3… a PR).  Isaac also scored 5th place in the high jump (5’ 2″… a PR).  Alexi Philippoussis `15 scored 3rd place – in the junior division shot put (30’ 3″) and ran a personal best 400m time of 1:01.47 as well as a personal best in the 2-mile (11:45.22).  As mentioned above, our men’s 4 x 800 relay placed second with a personal best time of 9:27.34.  Adam Patterson `13 won both his heats in the 55m and 200m with personal record times of 7.44 and 27.43.
