WINDSOR, Vt. – On Saturday, Windsor hosted the D-III track and field championships for Vermont, and local athletes made themselves known, specifically on the boys’ side.

The Springfield boys finished second overall and the Windsor boys trailed not too far behind, coming in fourth.

Being asked how he felt upon the announcement of the Cosmos achieving state runner-up, assistant coach Stephen Lawrence responded, “I felt incredibly proud of every one of our athletes. It’s an awesome achievement for the team.” Springfield head coach Jim Fog added, “It’s great to see our athletes come together as a unit and deliver their best performances when it matters most.”

Junior Cadence Wheeler led the Cosmos boys, winning javelin, triple jump, high jump, and coming in second in the long jump. Springfield also depended on junior sprinter Max Leninski, who placed second in the 100m dash and fourth in the 200m (both personal records).

Senior AJ Aldrich placed third in the 400m and finished fifth in the 200m, and was joined Leninski, senior Bryson Jester and sophomore Ryan Antonivich to place 2nd in 4x100.

For Windsor, they were led by sophomore Owen Abrahamsen, who finished first in the 110m hurdles, 300m hurdles, and the pole vault. Eli Milligan finished first in the discus and had three second-place finishes to help out the Yellow Jackets.

The Springfield girls finished eighth on Saturday. Anna Ondre placed second in high jump and placed fifth in long jump (both personal records). Skyler Congdon placed third in discus, and ran a leg of the 4x800 relay with her sister, senior captain Paige Congdon, Chloe Jerman-Brown, and Ondre.

Springfield sophomore Natalia Dorcely placed second in triple jump and sixth in long jump. She teamed with junior Maddi O’Brien, and classmates Hannah Hallock and Hannah Dolloff to place sixth in the 4x100. Sophomore Haley Gibbons hit a season’s best to place fourth in the triple jump.
