The Blue Knights won most of the field events, sweeping the pole vault, but couldn’t overcome divisional Hall’s domination on the track, as they suffered their second loss of the season, 101-49, on the road on Tuesday, April 17.
Besides winning all three relays, the Warriors swept four other events on the track as well and allowed the Knights to take just one event on the track.
Southington took first in the following events: Elijah Rodriguez in the 100m hurdles, Cameron Clynes in the javelin, Jack Terray in the long jump, Jeffrey Hannigan in the triple jump, and Zachary Burleigh in the pole vault.
The following finished as runners-up in individual events: Conner Leone in the 3200m, Jake Monson in the shot put and discus, Jack Herms in the javelin, and Aiden Chesanow in the pole vault.
The following finished third: Kolby Rogers in the 100m, Ryan Slesinski in the 800m, Owen Bouchard in the shot put, Ryan Andrews in the discus, Terray in the triple jump, and Ben Ragozzine in the pole vault. Terray tied Hannigan for third in the high jump.
Rogers qualified for the Class LL meet in the 100m (11.5). John Carreiro, Trevor Porter, Kolby Rogers, and James Ringrose also qualified for the state meet (4x100m relay, 45.5).
The Knights will be back in action this week when they travel to divisional Conard on Tuesday, April 24. Southington is 1-2.
