NORWICH – Norwich made it three-for-three at the REK Friends Forever Invitational sweeping the boys’ and girls’ titles Friday night at Norwich.
The boys’ squad used strong performances in the field events to eke past Greene (83.5 to 78), while the girls were impressive polling 81.5 points to outdistance runner-up Oxford, who finished with 51.
“Greene pretty much had the edge in the running events, but we won three field events, and that is what put us over the edge for the boys,” said Norwich co-head track and field coach, Paul Sims. “Our girls’ team is very solid and has a lot of depth in different places. It was a great night and we finished just before it started to rain.”
Norwich gained command finishing one-two in the long jump led by Jesse Prosser. Mike Reilly picked up a win in the triple jump, and Robert Murray grabbed the top spot in the pole vault.
