SWHS’s varsity heat outruns Aerospace High School’s in their 100 meter.

The Bobcats have had a rough start to the season, losing the first 2 meets of the season against Manchester and Tolland. Yet, they were determined to make a comeback in their tri-meet on Tuesday, April 23 against Aerospace High School and Enfield.  

“The team preserved and we got the win after long hard practices and tough loss against our rivals Tolland,” junior Nathan Tenney said. 

The team won overall in their meet on Tuesday against Enfield. SW boys varsity had a final score of 86 over 64. And the girls swept with 95 points to Enfield’s 53. 

Sophomore London Bascomb made states for javelin with a score of 90.5 feet. 

“I am happy to have been able to make states again this year, and I am looking forward to pushing myself throughout the season in order to keep improving. My biggest opponent is myself,” Bascomb explained. 

South Windsor boys took 1st in the 100, 200, 400, and 110 meter hurdles, 4×100 and 4×800.

“Our 4×100 team hasn’t lost yet and a lot of guys including myself have been placing top 3 in the 100 and 200. Our 4×100 team is looking to beat our school record we currently hold from last year”, junior Ethan Burke said.

Boys also took first place in shot put, high jump, long jump and triple jump. 

“But for the throwers, we got it done in shot and made sure to get placement points in both other events. We did our job,” junior Will Campbell commented. 

 The teams will compete again on Thursday, April 25 against EO. Smith and this will be a big competition for the Bobcats.
