BHS athletes perform well at track meets

Local students finish first, second at Dartmouth Relays

Posted

A number of Barrington boys recorded stellar times at the World Trophies Invitational tournament in Providence on Saturday, Jan. 11. 

Barrington's 4x800-meter relay team of Jay Scheiffelin, Caleb Schultz, Charlie Stockwell and Ethan Major ran to a third place finish with a time of 9:10.63. The Eagles' Thomas McAdams finished tied for third in the high jump, clearing a height of 5 feet, 4 inches. McAdams also finished sixth in the 55-meter dash.

CJ Hilty ran to a fourth place finish in the 3,000-meter race, while Noah Buller finished in sixth place in the same event. 

Asher Robbins finished in fifth place in the weight throw, with a distance of 56 feet, 6.5 inches.

Barrington's Will Cauley celebrated strong finishes at both the Yale Classic on Thursday, Jan. 10, and at the Dartmouth Relays on Sunday, Jan. 12. 

At the Yale Classic, Cauley finished in third place in the weight throw with a distance of 69 feet, 6 inches. At the Dartmouth Relays, Cauley finished second in the weight throw with a distance of 71 feet, 2.75 inches,

Girls indoor track

On Tuesday, Jan. 7 the BHS girls won meets against Classical High School (82-27) and Bay View Academy (97-11). Barrington athletes won 10 of the 13 events against Classical and 11 events against Bay View. 

Stephanie Chun was a double winner, setting personal best times in the 3,000 and 1,000, while Claire Grover won the high jump and scored in the long jump and hurdles. Many others also competed and scored in multiple events.

Caroline Livingston won the 1,500-meter race, while Margaret Nozaki finished fourth and Meg Zitzmann was fifth. Audrey Gravelle won the 55-meter hurdles, while Claire Grover finished second and Elizabeth Grover was fourth. Jordynn Palethorpe finished second in the 600 meter race, while Violet Gagliano was third and Livingston was fourth in the same event. Julia Howarth finished second in the 300, and Tess Gagliano was third. 

Madison McGloin performed well in the throwing events — finishing second in both the weight throw and the shot put. 

Over the past weekend the Barrington team split up — a number of athletes went to the Yale Classic. Maddy McGloin finished fifth in the very competitive weight throw. On the track, five BHS athletes achieved personal best times in the 600, 1000 and mile.

At the same time many athletes competed in the World Trophy meet in Providence. Barrington had victories in the 55 hurdles (Audrey Gravelle) and shuttle hurdle relay while scoring well in the 4x200 relay, the 400 meters, and the high jump. 

And on Sunday Maddy Mcgloin traveled to Dartmouth where she won the weight throw.

The girls have a dual meet on Monday, Jan. 20. Many athletes will also compete in the East Coast Classic meet over the upcoming weekend.
