Scarborough Boys Make it 7 in a Row

The Scarborough boys continued their winning tradition on Monday at the University of Southern Maine's Costello Athletic Complex as the Red Storm who entered the meet as the favorites won their seventh consecutive team title, and their twelfth in the last fourteen years.


Scarborough got off to a strong start as sophomore Nate Murray moved from the third position to the top in the shot put on his final throw. Murray who had a best of 46-1 entering the competition spun the shot out to 47-11 on his sixth throw. 

The Red Storm went through a rough patch as they didn't score as high as they were seeded in the 55m hurdles, 55m dash and one mile races but that didn't derail Scarborough as they finished the meet very strong. 

Senior Parker Killiard roared to a personal best 22.58 to win the 200m race for ten important points to pull Scarborough within two points. Sophomore Wyatt Martin came up with a one foot personal best in the pole vault to earn a runner-up finish with his 12-0 clearance. 

The two mile sealed the meet for Scarborough as distance standout Adam Bendetson set an early fast pace and was never challenged winning by twenty plus seconds with his 9:31.52. Teammates Ethan Keller moved up from the eighth seed to fourth with a personal best 10:21.03, while senior Nate Driscoll moved from ninth to sixth with a personal best 10:25.36.


Brunswick took the runner-up honors behind senior Thomas McCormack's 13-0 clearance in the pole vault. Sprinter Spencer Stadnicki added a runner-up finish in the 400m (51.5) plus added a fourth in the 200m (23.21), both races yielded personal bests for the senior. Another senior Miles Logan was third in the 800m (2:00.89).
