NORWICH – Norwich did the best thing possible to pay tribute to the three Norwich girls honored (Katie Almeter, Rachel Nargiso, and Emily Collins) in the 2nd Annual REK Invitational: Sweep the team titles in impressive fashion.
The Purple Tornado rolled to its dominating victory with superior balance across the board, while also saving some of its best performances for the school’s biggest home meet of the season. “It seemed like every kid I spoke to after their race, they were telling me they had another personal best,” said Norwich co-head coach Paul Sims.
Norwich senior Keegan Edwards was named the boys’ most outstanding athlete winning three individual events (110 hurdles, 400 hurdles, pole vault), while also teaming for a first in the 1600-meter relay.
Eric Muserallo wasn’t far behind his NHS compatriot with three total first-place finishes, and Brennan Ryan swept the discus and shot put.
Overall, Norwich took nine events in the six-team field, swept the top three spots in the 400-meter hurdles, and had seven events in which it took at least two of the top three spots. “It’s been a great year for our team, and this turned out to be a great event,” Sims said.
