Exeter/Hebron Academy/Pingree School Track Meet – 4/12/14
The men’s and women’s track teams traveled to Phillips Exeter Academy for their first track meet of the year. We competed against Division I Phillips Exeter, and Division III Hebron Academy and Pingree School. It was a beautiful day for a track meet and I was overall pleased with our performance and competitive spirit. As of this writing, no meet scores have been posted. Individual performance results are attached
First off, I want to thank the Hyde parents who came to support.
Women’s Meet (suspected team finishes):
The Exeter women’s team was very competitive. With only three Hyde girls competing, I was hoping we would at least get on the scoreboard… and we did. Senior Julia Jackson `14 grabbed second place in the 400m with a PR run of 1:05.4. Senior Xi Wang `14 placed 5th in the 3000m run (12:42.00), a PR for her. In her first ever track meet, freshman Cherry Weng `17 competed well in the 200m (35.3) and 400m (1:21.2).
Men’s Meet (suspected team finishes):
3. Pingree/Hyde (looked close overall)
Men’s highlights included our only first place finisher of the day Andrew Davis `15 (53.5 in the 400m). Jamie Lynch `15 took third in the javelin with a throw of 135-01… a PR (by over 14 feet!!!). Alex Greenberg `14 ran a gusty 3000m finishing third in 9:59.9. In the 300m hurdles, our rookie threesome took 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places… Zach Brandeis `14 (55.4), Jake Deutschlander `15 (56.5), and Dean Tian `15 (59.4). Dean also grabbed a 4th place finish in the 110 hurdles. Evander Leonardson `14 competing in his first-ever track meet jumped 19-01 in the long jump… a remarkable first jump. The men’s 4 x 400m relay team (Mohamed, Deutschlander, Kundy, A. Davis) placed third overall (3:54.10).
