Hermon's 4x800 meter boys relay team turned in a personal record, with a winning time of 9:46:22.
"We've been working really hard," said Connor Cropley, the Hawks anchor. It's been a long time, we've come a long way. I'm just really proud of ourselves. I feel like we earned it."
The Brewer girls showcased their strength in the sprints, as senior Lia Johnson took first place in the 100-meter dash in 13.12 seconds.
"I was kind of expecting it," she said. "At the same time I looked at the seeds before and that kind of stressed me out, because then it gives me expectations. But it was really good."
Mattanawcook Academy sophomore Cayden Spencer-Thompson showed just how smooth the transition between indoor and outdoor can be for top athletes. Following a strong performance at Indoor Nationals in the triple jump event, he opened the outdoor season with a personal record in long jump.
"On a cold day like this, I'm happy with any outcome," he said. "Crappy-weather days usually end up with not-too-decent jumps. With a PR in long jump, I'm pretty excited to open the season with that."
Both Brewer boys and girls took home the overall team victories.
