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).
