What happens when you combine a cross country team with a future decathlete during an indoor championship? You get a division title. Pembroke took the versatility of Kris HornKri and combined it with the foot speed of their middle distance stable to rack-up big points. Horn finished third in the 55m hurdles, second in the long jump, and ran 50.4 anchor leg to help win the 4x400m. The Hingham girls walked away with the team title and most of their damage was done on the track. The difference maker for Hingham was the relays, where they won the 4x200m, finished second in the 4x400m, and fifth in the 4x800m.
Chuck Martin has compiled every division champion since 1918. Equally impressive to the list itself are the teams that were able to string together multiple consecutive championships. St. John’s put together six in a row from 1957 to 1962. The Newton South girls and Mansfield girls are both sitting on three consecutive championships. Can they make it four this week?
