Vineyarders at their best in All-State track meet


The MVRHS outdoor track teams closed out the season in style at the MIAA All-State Outdoor Championships, held at Norwell High School last Thursday and Saturday.

Zach Utz, Wren Christy, and the boys 4 x 800 relay team all set personal bests and broke school records, while Anabelle Biggs equaled her sectional distance in the long jump.

Utz ran the mile in 4:20.48, five seconds faster than before, to place seventh of 20 runners. The boys 4 x 800 relay team of Jonathan Norton, Owen Atkins, Daniel da Silva, and Zach Utz also ran seventh, and clocked in at 8:13.59, two seconds better than the record-shattering mark set at sectionals last week. Wren Christy placed 12th in the two-mile, shaving more than six seconds off her previous best time to finish in 11:19.60.

Anabelle Biggs competed in the field events on Saturday, and jumped 17 feet, 0.5 inches to place 14th.
