Hyde School Track and Field vs. Hyde-ME, Richmond, NYA, Sea Coast, and Hebron April 17, 2014
Sea Coast: 73
Sea Coast: 81
The Wolfpack hopped on a coach bus for a long ride up to Hyde School in Bath, ME for the President’s Cup. With little time to recover from the meet the previous day, Woodstock’s Track and Field athletes stayed positive and motivated. It would be another long, cold meet, but a meet of great accomplishments as well.
The girls team put in a lot of effort across the board. Dossou Ndiaya, Amelia Lyle, Janicha Diaz, Alyssa Eagan, Grace Briggs, and Tracy He all helped score points to help the team earn second place. Diaz scored first place in the 300m hurdles (18.53), third in the 100m high hurdles, and contributed to both the 4×100 and 4×400 as well. Ndiaya and Lyle dominated the field events, with Ndiaya taking first in the shot put (29’7.5″) and second in triple jump (30′.5″), and Lyle taking first in pole vault (7’6″) and second in javelin. Fan, Briggs, and He were all competitive in the sprints, while Lizzie Xu, Alyssa Eagan, and Mandy Yang took over mid and long distance. Eagan found the courage to represent Hyde Woodstock in the 3000, and ran a personal best time of 16:36.4, taking 5th place.
The boys team was off to a great start with Nixon taking first place in the 110m high hurdles with a time of 18.43. The wolf pack continued to pick up points in the sprints, with Kyle Jordan and Dexter Thompson tying for second place in the 100 (11.6). Leanard and Azevedo showed great effort in the distance events. Azevedo shaved almost 10 more seconds off of his 1500, running a 4:54.31. In the 3000, Leonard ran 11:00.2 to pick up a couple points finishing in 4th place. Nixon went on to score another first in the 300 hurdles (48.00), while Jordan and Greenidge both placed top 3 in the 200m print. These two athletes were great contributors in the relays as well. In the field events, Rob Ficarra excelled in the throws. Ficarra won first place in the shot put, and second in the discus throwing 113 ft.
The boys and girls teams both finished second over all, and are enjoying having time to recover for the next meet this Wednesday!
