Additionally she dropped over two seconds off of her 200 m.  Elsa Zhang ’18 worked diligently to improve her skills in both javelin (37’ 8”) and discus (52’ 8”).  Coco Cai ’17 kicked off her javelin season with a personal best of 42’ 9”.  Senior Allegra Weterrings continued to work through injury in the hopes of improving her 300 intermediate hurdle times but was able to secure a 21.95 in the 100 high hurdles.

The boys’ team faced demanding odds against much larger teams from Kingswood Oxford and Worcester. Despite this the boys individually and collectively pursued their best.  The 4 x 100 relay earned a second place with a solid time of 46.93.  James Kellogg ’16 dropped 30 seconds off his 1500 m time and Andrew West ’17 ran a strong 4:48.6 and placed fourth against a dominant field. In the 110 m high hurdles PG Jordan Burney gained valuable experience and earned a fourth place with a time of 21.23.  In the 300 intermediate hurdles Omar Raddoui ’17 and Andrew West ’17 both dropped over two seconds on their times. Marcellus Piper ’16 earned a fourth place finish in the 200 m with a time of 24.7.

The field events provided 22 of the team’s overall 37.  More than the points however a number of athletes improved significantly. In the high jump Rodney Ray ’17 edged closer to a new school record with a 6’ 0” jump and a first place finish; Eamonn Joyce ’16 was right behind him in second at 5’ 10”.  Daniel Murray ’17 provided additional points in fourth place jumping 5’ 8”.  Harrison Hall ’16 added two feet for a personal best of 33’ 7.5” and a fourth place. Khalil Johnson ’17 jumped just over 18’ feet in the long jump and 36’ 10.5” for the triple jump.

With much of the season ahead of the team, both girls’ and boys’ teams are looking ahead to improving.
