Three members of the ConVal track and field team earned spots in the New England championship meet with their performances at the NHIAA Meet of Champions at the University of New Hampshire Sunday.

The Meet of Champions combined the best-performing athletes from Divisions I, II and III. A top-six performance at the MoC earns an athlete a spot in the New England championship.

Fresh of winning a state championship, junior William Simard finished second in the 3,200-meter run with a personal-best time of 9 minutes, 27.19 seconds.

Tasha MacNeil finished fourth in the javelin with a throw of 102-feet, 5-inches.

Kendrick Edwards finished fifth in the 100-meter dash, in 10.88 seconds. The fourth-, fifth- and sixth-place finishers in that event all clocked in at 10.88 seconds.

The New England championship meet will be held at the University of New Hampshire on Saturday, June 8.
