Wolfpack Track & Field Hosts MPS & PCD

Hyde School took to the track once again for a home contest against Marianapolis and Providence Country Day. The boys team were the overall champion for the third time in a row, outscoring second place by 62 points. Meanwhile, the girls team showed marked improvement, scoring a season high, 27 points.

The highlight performance of the meet came once again from Brian O’Dea ’13 when he bested school records in the 110H (16.31) and 300H (41.93). His times place him near the top of his event groups for the New England Championship meet.

Other highlight performance came from Josh Bouchard ’14 and Greg Munetz ’13. Bouchard finished with a second place in the 400M, while Munetz placed first in both the shot put and discus. The Tabor College commit is looking to build on these strong performances in the throwing events down the stretch.

The girls had one of their strongest showings of the year thus far. Finishing third amongst three teams, the girls fought from the start of the javelin to the conclusion of the 1600 meter relay. Amelia Lyle ’14 continued her dominance of the pole vault, securing an early win. Amanda Diedrick ’13 earned a hard fought third place in the 800M.

In what was another great meet, the boys and girls teams look to continue to their progress toward New England qualifying times and personal bests.
