Houlton/GHCA track and field stars shine amid harsh conditions
Our boy’s squad posted some impressive improvements but fell shy of some scoring positions this meet. They too were working with a reduced event schedule so scoring opportunities were more uncommon than usual. Winning the meet was host Caribou with 197 points while Ellsworth came in second with 131. Rounding out the results were Presque Isle 81; MSSM 62; Central 48; Fort Fairfield 20; Washburn 12; tied, Houlton GHCA and Fort Kent sixth.
Scoring for the boys was the distance team of James Brady and Landon Laferriere. Both competed in the Javelin, 1600m, and 800m, with Brady placing fifth in each race for four p
oints and Laferriere placing sixth in the races for two points. Earning non-scoring top 10 places was Brady in Javelin ninth and Gavin Wright in Shot Put seventh.
