Conference Champions Crowned Across Maine


Large School Champions: Bangor Girls & Boys    RESULTS

The boys' meet was a barn burner between Class A Bangor and Class B Mt. Desert Island as the team entered the final event the 4x400 separated by just one point. The Trojans held a slim one-point lead and top-ranked 4x400m relay. Senior Andrew Munroe anchored for the Rams and held off the hard-charging Walker St. Germain to give the Rams ten points as they edged the Trojans by one point for the team title. The Ram's time of 3:31.89 is the fastest in the state this spring, MDI's 3:32.40 ranks second in the state and is the fastest in Class B. Both teams will be primed to challenge for state titles next week.

Bangor got things started in record-breaking fashion as the team of Daniel McCarthy, Gordon Doore, James Fahey, and Fritz Oldenburg set the tone by smashing the PVC record of 8:17.45 in the 4x800m relay. The relay clocked a time of 8:07.59 to put themselves in the record book.
