The St. Johnsbury Academy boys' track team hasn't lost a home meet during the past four years. That fine tradition continued Tuesday afternoon when the Hilltoppers tamed a field of three other teams including Mount Mansfield Union, Danville and North Country.

Track Roundup

In the girls' meet, however, the MMU Cougars roared. Dominating the running events, MMU, recent Division I champions, ran up the score to prevail.

SJA triple-event winner Matt Robinson gave the Cougars a proper introduction to the Hilltoppers' track and field facilities by winning the shot put, discus and 100-meter dash.

Double-event winner Chris Clayton earned more valuable points for the Hilltoppers' ever-growing tally as he won the 100-meter high hurdles and the 200-meter dash.

A stunning victory in the 400-meter dash by newcomer Leroy Francis sent the competition reeling as they scurried to find out who was this new speed merchant.

Danville's Dylan Bertolini set a steady, strong pace in the 3,000-meter run as he strode to victory in 10:06.8.

Emily Lauffer won the 100-meter high hurdles and Pat Lang won the shot put to pace the Hilltoppers to their second place.

The Hilltopper and Falcon boys will travel to Burlington this Friday to compete in the Burlington Relays.
