The Cony girl's team ended up with enough ribbons of every color to overcome Belfast's dominance at the top of the podium to repeat as KVAC Class B outdoor track and field Champions for 2019.

It was an auspicious start for the Rams as their 4 x 800 team opened the meet with a win. They ended the day atop the sixteen team field with 100 points, Winslow followed with 93, Belfast came next at 85. Waterville (69) and Maranacook (50) rounded out the top five.

Anna Reny's mastery of the hurdles led to wins in both the 100 (15.84) and 300 (46.63) meter hurdles. Both marks are new personal bests and the sophomore put up another personal marker in the 200 where her run of 26.52 earned her a second place ribbon. The Rams also got an individual title from Annemarie Towle in the race-walk; Towle glided to victory in 9:05.51, also setting a new personal best.

Cony's depth helped them pile up the points. Anna Reny had company on the hurdles podium as first year
Mallory Audette placed at both distances while setting new personal marks. Reny also got a hand from her sister Julia who took second in the 400, third in the javelin (106-11, PR) and placed in the 100. The Rams also took thirds in both the 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 relays.

Carly Warn led Winslow to a second place finish by taking the title in both sandy jumps. She went 16-11.25 to take the long jump title and 32-11.25 for the triple win.
