PORTSMOUTH — The Portsmouth High boys’ indoor track and field team picked up two more wins on Thursday, Jan. 12, to remain undefeated with a 7-0 record.

The Patriots beat Narragansett, 82-27, and Rogers, 80-29, during a meet held at the Providence Career & Technical Academy.

There were 24 personal bests for the Patriots, who notched seven first-place finishes.

“The meet MVP for us goes to Landon Rodrigues,” said head coach Shaun Horgan. 

Rodrigues, a junior, won the 55-meter hurdles race in a time of 8.36 seconds, and also took first place in the long jump with a best leap of 20 feet, 8 inches. “Both performances moved him into the top six of the statewide rankings,” Horgan said.

Here are some other first-place finishes by the Patriots:

• Nate Deconto, Nick Spaner, Jackson Fox, and Christian Claytor in the 4x200-meter relay, 1:38.77

• Deconto, Spaner, Wake Zani, and Aidan Chen in the 4x400-meter relay, 3:44.5

• Aidan Chen in the high jump, 6 feet

• Chris Vachon in the 1,000-meter run, 2:55.53

• Jae Defalco in the 600-meter run, 1:33.46

The team will compete in Providence against Chariho and Prout at 7:15 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20.
