Track & Field Roundup: B-P girls second, boys third at Maple Hill
SCHODACK — The Broadalbin-Perth girls track and field team placed second and the boys team was third at the Maple Hill Invitational on Saturday.
“Today was a good day for us as both teams were very competitive despite depleted rosters. Due to injury and two school functions, we only brought nine girls and 16 boys with us today,” B-P coach Jeff Richards said. “Despite this, the girls finished a surprising second and the boys a respectable third. Most importantly, we beat the teams we will have to beat come sectionals. The fact that we were able to do so without many key pieces showed me and my coaches that we have a team with guts that is committed to team first, me second. It also lets our kids know what we have been telling them all along — they have the talent and depth to be at the top this year. If we can compete with a full roster, the sky truly is the limit.”
