High School Roundup: ConVal athletes compete at Meet of Champions

Published: 06-05-2023 3:14 PM

Seven members of ConVal’s track and field team finished their seasons by competing in the Meet of Champions at Oyster River High School Saturday.

Athletes who finish in first, second or third in the state championship meet automatically qualify for the Meet of Champions. Alternatively, an athlete may qualify for MoC competition by virtue of a regular-season performance.

Sophomore William Simard finished eighth in the 1,600-meter run in a personal-best time of 4:31.42. Junior Jack Harris finished the pole vault event in a ninth-place tie, with a jump of 11 feet. Junior Elise Robbins matched her state meet first-place pole vault height of 8-feet, 6-inches, which earned 10th place at the Meet of Champions.

Junior Tasha MacNeil competed in the 100-meter dash (11th place, 13.06 seconds) and the javelin throw (12th place, 94-feet, 6-inches). Sophomore Kendrick Edwards competed in three events: long jump (ninth place, 19-feet, 6.75-inches), 100-meter dash (13th place, 11.46 seconds) and the 4x100-meter dash. The 4x100 team of Edwards, Harris, sophomore Elliot Featherstone and junior Anthony Cadwallader finished 10th in a time of 45.04 seconds after breaking the school record multiple times during the season.

All seven Meet of Champions competitors are sophomores or juniors.
