Indoor Track Update: Congrats to our Indoor Tracksters!

Just wanted to let you know that the Harwood Indoor Track Club Team did a great job at the state meet on Saturday!

Emma Russo came in 1st in the triple jump, 2nd in the long jump and 2nd in the 55 meter dash for Div 2.  She also qualified for regionals the week before at the New England qualifier.

Seth Beard came in 4th in the 55 meter dash for Div 2 at the state meet.  He didn’t qualify for regionals but wasn’t expecting to since he was the only freshman who was able to compete in the qualifier.  He came in 9th and was very happy with that.

There were many schools participating and countless dedicated athletes which made the whole season a great experience for Seth!
