Thetford Academy’s track and field teams had a strong opening meet at Windsor on Tuesday. Both the boys and the girls beat out all 8 other schools to take home their first win of the season. Individual athletes also had some exceptional performances, earning several new additions to the school record board:

  • Ava Hayden already had the third best 3000 time in school history, but she improved her previous best time by more than 17 seconds.
  • Evan Rich set a new school record in the triple jump with a mark of 42’1.5″.
  • Uly Junker set a new school record in the long jump with a 22’5.75″ jump. The previous record had been set in 2013 by Ian Weider ’13.
  • Uly Junker broke another 2013 record of Ian Weider’s in the 100 with a time of 10.95. The time is both a TA school record and a Vermont Division 3 record.
  • The full results are available here:
