Description

The Milton track teams concluded their regular season Saturday with a very successful outing at the always highly competitive McEachern Invitational.

BOYS
Milton (20th-14 pts) bested 13 schools at the team’s largest and most competitive meet of the season. Leading the Eagle charge was the school record performance of senior Zach Patell. His runner-up performance in the 800m (2nd-1:54.10) broke his old school record (1:54.46) which he had set a year ago on the same track at the state meet. Other scorers for Milton included sophomore Jayin Batra (6th-10:15.26) in the 3200m, senior CJ Wiley (8th-21.99) in the 200m making him the 5th best performer in school history, junior Justin Sevel (8th-4:31.40) for a big personal best in the 1600m and the 4x800m relay (8th-8:34.28) team of senior Daniel Murray, freshman Jasper Stone, sophomore Jonathan Lynch and junior Robert Claypoole running a season’s best.

GIRLS
The Lady Eagles (13th-23.5 pts) defeated 19 other schools while scoring from many different running events. The 4x800m relay (2nd-10:12.97) team started off the day with a runner-up finish. Senior Calista Cacciatore, junior Ella Franke & freshman Lucie Gallagher & Aarushi Dhawan came from as far back as 9th to place 2nd in a season’s best time. The highlight of the long meet for Milton was the 4x400m relay (3rd-4:03.98) team of seniors Nya Smith, Ella Grace Malcom, Leelah Dennis & freshman Simone Dennis with their win in a slower heat to take 3rd overall & just missing the 8-year-old school record of 4:03.93. Malcom also scored for the Lady Eagles in the 800m (3rd-2:20.06). Simone Dennis also scored in 2 events with her 100m (7th-12.23) & 200m (8th-25.12) performances. The latter made her the 2nd best performer in school history, just missing the school record by .12!

The Eagle track teams next compete on Wednesday, April 24th at the GHSA 7A Region 6 championship meet hosted by West Forsyth HS for advancement to the GHSA Sectionals meet on May 4th.
