5 Records Fall, St Dom's Captures Boys Team Title in Class B

The Class B boys indoor track and field championship at Bates College on Monday featured some of the best athletes to ever compete as five state meet records went down with several top ten performances all-time in state history were established.


York senior Matt Charpentier throwing in the circle he'll call home for the next four years got the record breaking day underway with his 57-10 1/2 bomb in the shot put. Charpentier the defending state champion and meet record holder added over a foot to his previous best as he dominated the competition by over eleven feet. 

Over on the track junior Miles Burr of Mt Desert Island continued his stellar season breaking the meet record of 6.53 in the prelims with a personal best 6.47. The time is the third fastest in state history and just .01 seconds away from the best time. Burr would go on to run 6.51 to win the final. He would return later in the day to smash the 200m record of 22.67 as he sped to a new personal best and second fastest performer at 200m in state history with his 22.34 winning effort. Burr wasn't done though he was the runner-up in the triple jump with another personal best 45-1 1/2 good for the ninth best jump in state history indoors.
