Bloomfield Takes Over State Lead in 10 Events

While this was a relatively quiet weekend for CT track teams, Bloomfield headed down south to Maryland to complete in the Bullis Bulldog Invitational.  The Warhawks took advantage of the warmer weather and set state leading performances in 10 events.  

Cassidy Palmer ran 12.08 in the semis and finished 5th in the finals of the 100m.  She came back to run 26.22 in the 200m.

Zaidra James, the State Open Indoor champion in the 55HH moved up in distance and ran a personal record or 1:04.84 in the 400IH.

Bloomfield entered the 4 x 100m and took 4th in 48.04 and ran 1:50.77 in the 4 x 200m.

Monique Anderson tied the state lead in the high jump and won with a leap of 5'2.  Jahleah Harris jumped 17'2 for 8th in the long jump and Adia Cavalier took 4th in the triple with a 36'6.5.

Brittany Jones swept the discus and shot put with throws of 132'9 and 43'8.25 respectively.  The senior now has the state lead in both events along with the hammer throw from her 153 ft toss last week at her home invitational last weekend.  

After the 20 events were scored, the defending CT State Open Champions finished 4th with 43 points behind Bullis School with 88, Western Branch with 75 and St. John College High with 50 points.
