Track & Field Meet at Philips-Exeter – 5/4/13
The Hyde boy’s and girl’s track team headed over to Philips-Exeter Academy this Saturday to compete against them for our second time this season. We were joined by the Belmont Hill boys’ team for another beautiful day and fantastic meet full of personal records. Overall our team did very well, working with great attitude and gearing up for our final two meets, MAISADs and the New England Championship which we will be hosting on the 18th.
