Track and Field- Boys 3rd, Girls 2nd

The Track and Field teams continued to roll Thursday night, putting up exceptional performances and two school records by Ben Scott and Danny Banister en route to a 3rd place finish for the boys and a 2nd place finish for the girls.

The girls earned a win in seven of the 12 events in which they had entries.  Claire Bingham put on a clinic, easily outdistancing her competition to wins in the 100m, 200m, 400m, and Long Jump.  Sophomore Hannah Gunn earned the first win of her Cape Henry Collegiate Track and Field career, taking the gold in the Triple Jump and grabbing a new PR in the process. Gunn also brought home the bronze in her first high jump event, clearing an impressive four feet.  Lexia Hann continued to hit her stride, notching victories in the 1600m and 3200m, as the second place finishes of Caroline Beaulieu in the Discus and Gabriella Gianascoli in the 200m dash also contributed to the scoring effort.

The boys were equally as impressive.  With an eye toward competing for a TCIS title, the boys used this meet as an opportunity to focus on specific events, rather than running the full gambit of events.  Leading the way was Danny Banister.  Banister grabbed a big win in the Long Jump with a school record leap of 19-10.  Teammate Ethan Jones was not to be outdone, grabbing second in the Long Jump.  Banister also took the win in the 100m dash, while he and Jones went 3-4 in the 200m dash.  Jones, Banister, Carter Ward, and Briggs Standing also teamed up to take second in the 4×100 relay, grabbing second and coming up just short– less than .5 seconds — of the school record.

Sophomore Ben Scott got onto the scoreboard, taking second in the 110 hurdles and setting a new school record of 19.96.  Owen Richards took the win in the 1600m, while John Ermini, Carter Ward, and William Wei battled to a 2-3-4 finish in the Triple Jump.  The team is on short rest as they will travel to Walsingham on Saturday for the Walsingham Invitational.
