Saturday was the end to a successful season for the boys’ and girls’ track teams. Aiden Tomov brought back a medal to Havertown with his 7th place finish in the 1600m run. Olivia Boyce had a strong showing against the state’s best and finished 9th in the high jump. Chasen Wint also performed well finishing 11th in the discus. The boys’ banquet will be this Thursday, May 30th. Congratulations to all those who put in hard work during the 2019 season. Aside from achieving strong performances, the dedication put into practices has taught us all the values of commitment, teamwork, pain tolerance, and consistency. These values are all applicable outside of track and they will help us find success in a wide variety of ventures.
