Essex Invitational next for CVU tracksters

The second big regional event awaits the Champlain Valley Union High track and field combine Saturday morning, when teams gather at Essex High for the annual Invitational meet.

The all-day event qualifies teams and individuals for next month’s New Englands.

CVU girls winners included: Malina Carroll (100 and 200); Sierra Morton (400); Sophia Gorman (1,500 and 3,000); Sadie Otley (300 hurdles); the 4×100 relay team of Naomi Burhans, Carroll, Morton and Otley; and Emily Ray, discus.

Redhawks’ boys victors were: Zach Akey (100); Tyler Marshall (1,500 and 3,000); the 4×100 relay team of Richard Baccei, Akey, Tawn Tomasi and Zip Cote; Benjamin Fox (triple jump) and Richard Tegatz (shot put).
