SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. – Terriers track and field swept the D-II State Meet on Saturday, with the boys winning in convincing fashion and the girls having to fight to the last race to earn their title.

The BF boys grabbed their seventh-straight state title, and their first in D-II since 2006, while the girls rallied for their fourth-straight state title.

The girls were tied up with Rice heading into the final event on Saturday, the 4x400, but a terrific effort from senior Jasmine Boucher in her anchor spot helped BF edge Rice and come in fourth in the race, securing the girls’ state title. They beat out Rice 107-105.

The girls won the meet despite only having one athlete winning their event. Besides Jaden Luebbert’s first-place finish in the pole vault, the Terriers scattered 4 second-place finishes and 5 third-place finishes in what head coach Tim Eno called a “total team effort.”

On the boys’ side, the Terriers had Reno Tuttle and Ryan Kelly each pick up individual state championships in two events, and BF won the 4x100 relay as well. They beat out runner-up U-32, 127-102.
