Sacopee Valley Track Meet – 4/22/13
The boy’s and girl’s track teams travelled to Sacopee Valley High School for competition against that school and Seacoast Christian school. The Sacopee Valley boy’s team is the State of Maine defending class C champion. Because we were participating in a public school meet, any of Hyde’s post-graduate scorers had to be taken out of the overall team scoring. It was a cool but beautiful afternoon for track and field. Like Saturday’s meet, I was pleased with our performance and competitive spirit.
Meet scores are below and individual performances attached (separate tabs for boys and girls).
Our top distance runner Wang Xi `14 had to sit out the day with a calf train. Also thrower, Katie Comeaux `13 had to sit out the throwing events for the day because of a shoulder strain. Katie instead competed in the 1600m race walk (1st place), the long jump (second place), and the 300m hurdles 2nd place). Mady Preece `13 continued her fine season with victories in the 300mhurdles and 200m dash. Mady finished second in the 100m hurdles.

The meet started off with the boy’s 4 x 800m relay team claiming victory and setting a setting a new school record in the event of 9:01.3 (Mitchell, Wang, Williams, Mohamed).
