Yesterday, the TCS boys’ varsity track and field team defeated both Galloway and Weber, both GHSA schools, in fun yet fierce competition. While our girls did not field a complete team, Leah Maresca faced the dragons with a 19.33 in the 100m dash for 6th place and one point. Alex Hogg returned to the track and field world in grand fashion winning the high jump in an electric dual between himself, Mintz from Weber and compatriot, Aidan Briggs. As the sun began to set, Hogg prevailed with a vertical of 5’09”, as Mintz and Briggs both cleared 5’07” with Mintz prevailing on fewer previous misses. Hogg earned silver in the triple jump with a horizontal hop, step, and jump of 31’07”. Hogg also assisted the lad’s 4X400m contingency of Kyle Kimble, Aidan Briggs, and Nicholas Daugherty in winning gold in the ultimate event of the evening in 4:11.40. Senior Nicholas Daugherty won every event he entered yesterday; His 1600 was in 5:21, 800m in 2:21.19, and ran third leg on the gold winning 4X400m relay team. Kyle Kimble won the 100m dash for the boys in smashing fashion with an 11.89 as Drew Elliott scored in sixth with his 13.47 as Harrison Lee garnered 8th at 17.03. Kimble won the 200m dash in 24.42 as Drew Elliott placed 6th and Charles Young leaned across for 8th in 28.56 and 32.05, respectively. Aidan Briggs won the strong man’s 400m in 59.70. Hutch Stowe and Nick Helm placed 7th and 8th respectively in the 800m at 3:03 and 3:07. Hutch and Helm reversed finishing positions in the coveted 1600m at 6:37 and 6:54. Aidan Briggs won the long jump on his initial attempt into the sand pit with a leap of 19’00,” as mate Kyle Kimble earned silver with a flight of 17’07”. Help me congratulate these stellar young student-athletes for their pursuit of academic and athletic excellence. Our next athletic meeting will take place at Parkview on 11 March beginning at 4:00PM.
