CT Top 50 Freshmen - 2022 Outdoor Events

The Class of 2025 started to make their mark on CT track and field this year in a very big way. Most of the heavy hitters among the freshmen at the CIAC Open were girls naturally, but during the season a couple of guys also excelled in the competition with their bigger brothers. Since most of the frosh have wrapped up their seasons at this point, we'll begin the grade class top 50 summaries with them.

Thirteen frosh girls earned a top 20 place at states including Caleah Baker (Classical Magnet) with a 12th best time in the 100m preliminaries and an 11th in the 200m, Leah Farrell (Cheshire) with an 8th in the 400m, Kiylah Williams (Bloomfield) with a 14th in the 400m, Cassandra Silkoff (Derby) with a 13th in the 800m, Kate Littler (Ledyard) with a 14th in the 800m, Natalia Kmita (Berlin) with a 20th in the 1600m, Tess Sherry and Liv Sherry (Conard) with an 8th and 9th in the 3200m, Radea Raleva (New Canaan) with a 15th in the 3200m, Lily Jason (Naugatuck) with a 9th in the 100m hurdles and 10th in the 300m hurdles, Jillian Dingler who ran the third leg of EO Smith's 1st-place 4x800m team, Jordan Carr (Joel Barlow) who earned the silver medal in the pole vault, and Lauren Plummer (Windsor) who was 12th in the shot put and 7th in the discus.

Owen Martin (Pomperaug) was the only frosh guy to finish in the Open top 20 with a 9th in the 1600m, but earlier in the season Thomas Matlock of East Lyme got the 18th best throw in CT in the shot put, following up on his 5th-best ranking indoors.

The top 50 frosh performances in each of the standard individual events plus the mile are presented on the following two pages.
