After two weeks of interscholastic track and field meets, the West Tisbury girls are unbeaten, having topped Tisbury and Edgartown.

The Edgartown girls are 1-1, topping O.B. and losing to W.T. Oak Bluffs boys and girls have yet to win a dual meet.

Hilary Dreyer led the MVRHS girls cross-country team in a sweep of Fairhaven on the 5K Island course that winds through the state forest, Tuesday, making the run in 21:24. The Islanders not only produced the first five runners to complete the course: Dreyer, (2) Sarah Flanders, (3) Elizabeth Reid, (4) Kim Carlomagno and (5) Emily Sobel, the first ten finishers were all Islanders: (6) Julia Sadowski, (7) Eliza Gowell, (8) Laura Jernegan, (9) Alexis Moreis, and (10) Dominique Penicaud.
It was a much more iffy thing for the boys team. After Fairhaven's Mitchell and Donte came in first and second at 18:27 and 18:31, MV's Lucas Emin (18:32) and Evan Kendall (18:49) were third and fourth at 18:32 and 18:49. Then came another Fairhaven harrier, Dawicki, and things looked bleak for the Vineyard.
But the next six runners all wore purple and white: Forest Harcourt, Max Conley, Alan Wiley, Ben Williams, Robert Osmers, Connor Rasmussen and Fairhaven had to settle for 12th and 13th. Thus the Island boys team pulled off a 28-31 win.
Originally scheduled as a three-way meet, Southeastern pulled out at the last minute leaving only Fairhaven to face the Vineyarders.
