Masuk Track & Field athletes achieve personal bests in state competitions

Tristan Smith led the Masuk boys track team to a 12e place finish at the state division MM meet, scoring all 16 of the team’s points. Smith surpassed his own school shot put record with an effort of 58’6” and took second place as both top two finishers broke the meet record.

He then followed that up with another second-place finish in the discus with a throw of 157’8”.

At the state open meet, Smith took 4e in the shot put and second in the discus, narrowly missing first place by just 2”. Masuk’s total of 13 points brought him to 16e place from more than 100 participating schools and he advances to the New England Championships in New Hampshire this weekend.

“His records will likely remain with Masuk for a long time and he will be remembered as one of the very best athletes to ever compete for Masuk,” said Masuk Track & Field Coach Terry Tyler.

“The girls also achieved some really good results at the class meeting,” he said.

Senior Jessica Attah-Agyeman jumped to a personal best of five feet in the high jump to match the winning height, but she had to settle for second place due to missed attempts. Attah-Agyeman just missed the crossbar from 6 feet away on the way down.

Junior sprinter Emily Haye captured 7e in the 100-meter sprint, and next year she will return to lead the sprinters.
