Watertown Invitational @ Watertown High School

The rain and snow finally gave way to sunshine and although the temperatures may have not quite warmed yet the feeling of spring was present at this Saturday's Watertown Invitational. With the change of date from Friday to Saturday the meet saw a drop in competing teams but still had some nice competition. The field events were hosted indoors (no discus) due to wet conditions while the running events were competed outdoors. It was nice to compete against multiple teams, have FAT timing, and earn some hardware for our competition. The boys team accumulated 116 points for third place and the girls team scored 74 points for fifth place. It was nice to see both teams competitive for scoring points and teammates encouraging each us as a team effort.

The performance of the day goes to Jester W as he won the 100m dash (10.78), 200m dash (22.83), and was a member of the 2nd place 4x400m relay. Jester's time of 10.78 (FAT) in the 100m dash set a new SCHOOL RECORD breaking the old mark of 10.8 (hand time). Adding another victory was Jonah W in the 3200m run (9:52.83). Micah P wrapped up a busy days with three 2nd place finishes in the 110m hurdles (16.20), Long Jump (19' 4.5"), and Triple Jump(41' 1.5"). The 4x800 team of Sam B, John H, Jake R, and Tyler M ran 8:44.88 for 2nd place and the 4x400 team of Nick M, Tyler M, Jester W, and Josh P ran 3:32.89 for 2nd place. Nick M added a second in the 300m hurdles (41.77) and a fourth place in 110m hurdles(16.79). Rounding out the top three finishers was Bryce H in the 3200m run (10:20.69). Others scoring points for the boys team included: Courtney M 4th in the 400m, Tyler M 5th and James A 7th in the 800, Josh P 5th and Connor GT 7th in the 1600, 4x100m relay 4th, and Jeremy G 4th in the shot put.

On the girls side Sienna C and Corinne F secured victories in their individual events. Sienna C ran 11:58.65 to win the 3200m run and Corinn F threw 35' 4.25" to win the shot put. Additionally, Marissa H ran a 13.14 to take a runner up finish in the 100m dash. Rounding out the top 3 finishes for the girls was 4x200 running in 1:52.71.
