The Kearsarge Cougars hosted their first home track meet this past week in what was very cold and windy weather. The athletes were able to tough it out to make this a very exciting sports filled afternoon.
Kearsarge Regional High School hosted its first home meet of the season this Tuesday with nine schools attending a long and chilly meet. Local schools included Kearsarge, Hopkinton, Sunapee, Newport, Stevens of Claremont, Hillsborough-Deering, and Mount Royal Academy.
Kearsarge boys had the day as they look towards regaining the Division III State Championship which they narrowly gave up to Interlakes High School last year. The cougar boys won the meet with 162 points, almost twice as much as Hopkinton who came in 2nd. Stevens came in a close 3rd with Newport in 5th, Sunapee in 8th and Mount Royal Academy in 9th.
On the Girls side, White Mountain ruled the day with 125 points, followed closely by Stevens, Newport and Kearsarge. Sunapee tied for 6th place and Mount Royal Academy placed 8th. Strong days were recorded by a number of athletes despite the chilly temperatures and wind.
Congratulations to the Kearsarge boys and the White Mountain girls on their strong victories.
