Suffield Meet and Next Week's Meet vs. Wilbraham

Track parents- For the first time since we started doing regular Saturday meets in 2016, we canceled a meet for weather. Good luck only lasts so long. Suffield Meet On Thursday, the middle schoolers ran against Suffield, Ellington, and Plainfield middle schools. The kids had a good time, and the highlights included Evan Lyons' breakout performance in the mile and 800, winning both events against good competition. Evan qualified for the June 1 middle school state meet in both events. Ada Grant qualified for the state meet in the mile, and David Prickett qualifed for the state meet and placed first in the shot put. Other notables were Charlotte Menella winning the shot put, and Nate Morrin

Important Suffield Meet Updates--Please Read

Third, remember to get on the bus ready to run with the white singlet and shorts. You can't have just the singlet on at school. Either wear a T-shirt under the singlet, or have a T-shirt over the singlet while at school. Fourth, the relays are going to be toward the end of
