By TIM TAYLOR

NEWPORT — Mason Martell and Peter Thibault were double individual winners as the Newport boys won nine events and the team title at its home meet Thursday.

The Tigers would finish with 193 team points to runner-up Mascoma's 138. Stevens placed third with 69, followed by Sunapee (42), FM (37) and Mount Royal Academy (6).

Martell won the 110 and 300 hurdles, posting times of 17.0 and 45.8 seconds, and winning by comfortable margins. Thibault dominated the shot put (42-1) and discus (128-4), capturing the shot by more than 6 ½ feet and the discus by more than 23 feet.

Not all the Tigers' wins were lopsided. The days most exciting finish came in the 1600, where Ethan Ritondo held off a late charge from Fall Mountain's Jared Walker. Ritondo had led from the start with Mascoma Valley's Justin Andrews either at his side or in his shadow. Over the last couple hundred meters, Walker made his move, broke into a sprint and looked like he would catch Ritondo at the finish. The meet was hand-timed, so there were no thousandths of seconds, and both runners hit the line in 5:33 with Ritondo ever-so-slightly ahead.

Newport's other individual winners were John Thibault in the 200 (24.3) and Dylan Palmer in the 400 (53.7). The Tigers also won two of the three relays, taking the 4x100 in 47.1 seconds and the 4x400 in 3:55.3.

Stevens won the 4x800 relay with a time of 9:26. The Cardinals' Josh Thurber was victorious in the 800 (2:35.4) and Ethan Sweet breezed to a win in the triple jump (41-6).

Sunapee had one winner in Carson Garland, who won going away in the 3200 with a time of 11:48. Runner-up John Hogan of Newport was almost a minute back at 12:44.

Fall Mountain had one winner also, Steven Walker in the high jump. He cleared 5-10.

Girls

Mascoma Valley's depth carried the Royals to the team title as their 117 points outdistanced runner-up Sunapee by 30. Stevens had 79 to take third and edge out Newport (73). Fall Mountain scored 58 and Mount Royal had 18.

Sunapee and Fall Mountain had three individual winners apiece.
