Girls track: Meet brings three wins

Despite taking on three opponents the Weston High girls track team had little to worry about from any of them last Monday, April 23.

Visiting New Fairfield, the Trojans scored more than 100 points against all of them. In addition to outscoring the hosts 107-43, they also defeated Bethel 110-40 and Immaculate 102-48.

The Trojans had plenty of speed in the 4×100 relay with Amanda Matluck, Ellie Martin, Hannah Goodman an Sydney Allon combining to finish in 51.8 seconds for the win.

They did not fare badly in the 100 meters either. Whitney Farber’s 13.6 was good for second overall and Matluck was a tenth of a second later for third.

Immaculate was strong in the distance events, sweeping the 1,600 and the 3,200. Middle distance was a different story, as Weston swept the 400. Martin got the victory in just under a minute in 59.7. Farber followed in 61.5 and Allon finished in 64.35.

Leading the way for Weston in the 300 intermediate hurdles, Goodman finished in 52.5, taking second. Another second place was in the 800 with Nina Low running a 2:31.63. Third went to Jane Wall in 2:39.9.

Going two-three in the 200 meters, the Trojans had Farber finish in 27.5. Allon followed in 28.0.

Winning two of the three relays, the Trojans had Goodman, Low, Farber and Martin combine for the 4×400 to finish in 4:16.

A distance of 62 feet, five inches earned Kaylie Bucaro third in the discus. Clearing 4’ 10”, Tess Fagan and Chloe Shapiro went one-two in the high jump based on number of attempts. Weston also took first in the long jump with Emily Savage leaping 15’ 7.5”.

She went on to win three events that day. Another win was in the triple jump with a distance of 32’ 7.5”. Sarah Dietzman was a close second with 32’ 3.75”.

Savage’s third win was in the pole vault with a height of eight feet.

Weston, now 5-0 overall, hosts Stratford, Newtown and New Milford on Monday at 4 p.m.
