ORONO - The indoor track and field season kicked off Saturday as local teams competed all day at the University of Maine across two sessions.

In the late session, Old Town senior Oliviah Damboise took home first place in the pole vault.


In the track events, Liang-Kang Lin won the boys 55 meter dash, Bangor's Nick Canarr came in second place.


In the high jump, Hermon's Zachary Beaton surprised everyone including himself as he took home first in the event.


"I was just kinda coming in going for a new 'PR' and I just happened to do well. I call myself mediocre, it's an event I like to do so it just makes things better," Beaton said.


While Beaton just missed his personal record, MDI senior shot putter Croix Albee didn't.


He took home first in Saturday evening's session and qualified for states.


Albee said he was satisfied with the results especially in the first meet of the season.


"Its really good I mean when you 'PR' it's like you said a monkey off your back you can just focus on getting better every practice every week. Just get that form, little things in the form so you can throw little bit further every time you step in the ring," Albee said.




Below are the full results from both sessions:
