Kent County News - - FRONT PAGE -

WOR­TON — The weather was cold and damp on April 3 and the meet was a lit­tle chaotic as it came on the same day as the Tro­jans re­turned to school from spring break, but there were per­sonal bests aplenty for the home team. Al­most ev­ery one of Kent County’s boys es­tab­lished PRs in track or field events, or both, led by Con­nor Bass (sec­ond) and Taek­won Dug­gins (fourth) in the 200 me­ters. Corey Robin­son had a per­sonal best in the long jump and the “throw­ers” — Josh Med­ford, Josh Thomp­son, Pa­trick Cur­ran, Bran­don Mitzel, Bran­don My­ers and Giuseppe Gordillo — im­proved in the shot put and dis­cus events. Also worth not­ing: Daniel Rick­man and Chris­tian Sun­kler placed first and third, re­spec­tively, in the 800 me­ters; Rick­man headed the 1600 me­ters; Dan Mitzel, Michael Zap­pia and Thomas Martinez, placed sec­ond, third and fourth, re­spec­tively, in the 3200 me­ters; and Matt Hart­man was the run­nerup in the shot put. On the girls side, fresh­man Mar­lee Berghaus had a break-through meet. She placed sec­ond in her de­but in the 300-me­ter hur­dles, trailed only class­mate Cecilia Lla­mas in the 800 me­ters and was third in the 1600 in a per­sonal-best time, to­tal­ing 11 team points. Lla­mas won the 800- and 1600-me­ter open races and placed sec­ond in the long jump with a PR of 12 feet, 5.5 inches. Ju­nior Bethany Heine­field placed fifth in the 200 me­ters and the 300 hur­dles. Deidre Hyl­ton ran a per­sonal best in the 400 me­ters. Fresh­man Molly Grafton placed sev­enth in the 800 me­ters. This was the only home meet for the Tro­jans, who hosted ath­letes from Eas­ton, Colonel Richard­son and North Dorch­ester. Grafton and Je­vante Dozier were mak­ing their track de­buts. In­juries kept them out of the sea­sonopen­ing meet March 26 at Queen Anne’s. Printed be­low are com­plete re­sults for Kent County. Per­sonal bests are de­noted in bold.
