Our teams made Flint Hill proud last week at the ISL/MAC conference championships and turned in some historic performances for our athletes and our program.
Highlights from the conference championships include:
A solid set of performances at the boys’ JV MAC meet on Tuesday. There were personal bests and improvements coming from Micah Krasner, Cooper Wesley, and Richard Ji, who showed the hard work they’ve put in this season paid off.
The girls’ team competed well Friday and Saturday in the highly competitive 15-team ISL conference championships.
Helena Nester ran a set of outstanding races, just shy of making finals and scoring points by placing 9th in the 100 m hurdles, 300 m hurdles, and 4x100m relay along with CJ Stevens, Sophie Bullard, and Emily Quinn.
Chanel Harvey continued her string of impressive shot put competitions, with a 4th place shot put of 32’9.5″
Leading the way for the Huskies, CJ Stevens broke through by posting a personal best 30’10” shot put good for 5th place, and earning a well-deserved new school record with a 2nd place throw of 94’7″ .
The boys’ team made the conference take notice at the MAC conference championships on Thursday and Saturday.
