Bath: MAISAD Championship Track Meet at Hebron Academy

MAISAD Championship Track Meet – 5/13/13

 

The boy’s and girl’s track team headed to Hebron Academy to compete in the MAISAD Championship meet against Hebron Academy, North Yarmouth Academy, and Seacoast Christian Academy. The meet was originally scheduled for this Saturday but was postponed for fairer weather. Our athletes performed very well both individually and as members of their team. The boys placed second out of the four teams and the girls placed third.

Our boys’ team fought with true grit to come in a close second behind Hebron Academy. Our distance crew exhibited the depth and prowess they have come to be known for this season with seniors Austin Wang ’13, Sam Williams ’13, and Isaac Preston ’13 all placing in the 3000m. Austin and Sam also competed and placed in the 1500m with Austin coming in second and Sam sixth. They were joined by junior Warsame Mohamed ’14 who came in third. The boys’ hurdlers did very well at Hebron, sophomore Luis Allen ’15 competed in the 110m hurdles for the first time this year and placed fifth, senior Billy Martinez ’13 set a personal record and placed third, and sophomore Dean Tian ’15 placed fourth. In the 300m hurdles junior Moustapha Niang ’14 placed sixth, Billy third, and senior Sam Mann ’13 placed fourth. Some incredible pole vaulting was done by freshman Chris Baldwin ’16. It was his first and only attempt at vaulting during competition. The week leading up to Monday was nerve-racking for Chris who at times succumbed to doubt and frustration. He put all that behind him on Monday to vault an impressive 7 feet, 6 inches, coming in third place at our MAISAD championship! The final event of the day was the 4 x 400 meter relay. Senior Wondo Shaw ’13 started the relay, followed by Luis Allen ’15, Warsame Mohammed ’14, and anchored by senior Cody Mitchell ’13. Cody had just finished the 800m and 400m, placing second and setting personal records in each. The relay was incredibly close with Hyde and Hebron going back and forth, fighting for first. It was not until the final leg that Cody cemented our lead, running an incredible race in which he put everything he had down on that track, securing a first place finish for the Hyde 4 x 400 boys relay team with a combined time of 3:49.

 

The boys’ team set 12 personal records at MAISADs this year.
