Sparks’s Late Surge Leads to Second Place Finish

Running in the friendly confines of Claflin Field, the Blue & Gold track & field team had some strong performances against Fenn and Nashoba Brooks this week. Highlights included Cole Sparks making up 50m in the final lap of the mile to capture a second place finish, Camille DeStefano breaking out for a team best in the 200m, and a dramatic win by the girls’ 4x200m relay team of Piper Morris, Dana Chang, Breah LeGrand, and Kiki Friedbauer.
