There were plenty of meets to choose from this past weekend. There was also plenty of outstanding efforts by our MA athletes.
Medfield's John McNeil made his way to the top of the state rankings in the high jump by winning the event at the Freshmen-Sophomore Small School meet on Sunday with a clearance of 6 feet, 6 inches. Also in the jumping events, Milton's Smith Charles earned gold in his specialty with a leap of 22-3.25 at the Dartmouth Relays. Dartmouth also saw impressive victories from Innovation Academy's Aiden Felty (54-10.5) in the shot and Lowell's Sprint Medley Relay, which was timed in 3:41.73 (US #14).
