It’s early, but the Hopkinton High girls’ track and field team is already showing that its depth could make it a team to be reckoned with this season.

The Hawk girls scored in all 14 events during yesterday’s nine-team meet at Bow, piling up 124 points to comfortably beat runner-up White Mountains (100). Bow (82), Winnisquam (79.5) and Newmarket (50) rounded out the top five, followed by Concord Christian (29.5), Derryfield (16), Sunapee (15) and Epping (13).

On the boys’ side, Hopkinton took second place with 98.33 points, trailing only White Mountains (106).

“It was a great day on the track,” first-year Hawks Coach Matt Christie said. “Finally some nice spring weather, and the kids did great.”

Freshman Maddie Clark had the Hopkinton girls’ lone individual victory, taking first in the 300 hurdles (52.5). She added a second-place finish in the 1,600.

The Hawks were also strong in the relays, taking firsts in the 4x400 (4:42.6) and 4x800 (10:39.8). Another 4x400 team took third, and the 4x100 was fourth.

Other top-three finishers for the Hawks were Lillias Whitehead (second 400, third 100 hurdles), Katie Irwin (second, 3,200), Hannah Hughes (second high jump), Sarah Nadeau (third 800) and Maryann Cousens (third long jump).

Bow’s third-place finish was led by a stellar performance from Maggie Jensen. The sophomore was first in the 100 hurdles (18.0), long jump (14-0) and triple jump (32-6), and second in the 300 hurdles. The Falcons’ 4x800 team took second, and both Saara Bliss (200) and Crista Alfano (400) contributed third-place finishes. Christy Vinnenberg had two fourths (100, 800) and a fifth (high jump).

Winnisquam secured two victories, one individually (Carissa Archibald in the high jump at 4-10) and one as a team (4x100 in 58.1 seconds). Archibald added a second in the 200, Tea Michaloski was second in the long jump and third in the triple jump, and both the 4x400 and 4x800 relay teams took third.

Concord Christian was led by Mahala Pincince, who was second in the 100 and fourth in the 200. The 4x100 relay took third, and Sarah Ingram was fourth in the 400.

On the boys’ side, the Hawks were led by wins from Cooper Block (triple jump, 37-3.5) and Nick Fleury (100, 11.8), while Dom Repucci was second in the 1,600 and third in the 800. Cody Roberge (400) and Evan Schindewolf (triple jump) had third-place efforts for Hopkinton, which also won the 4x400 relay and placed second in the 4x800 and third in the 4x100.

Winnisquam was third with 82 points, followed by Bow (47), Concord Christian (46.5), Newmarket (35.16), Sunapee (21.5) and Derryfield (17.5).

Winnisquam got second-place finishes from Richie Mills (200), Michael Roy (800) and Connor Archibald (high jump). The Bears’ 4x100 team also finished second, while the 4x400 team came in third. Christian Stock was third in the 200.

Jordan Birtz was the top finisher for Bow, winning the 200 (25.4) and coming in second in the 100. Andrew Attorri also had a second-place finish for the Falcons, finishing the 3,200 in 11:38, while the 4x800 team finished third.

Eli Christensen won the 400 (56.00) and was third in the 100 for Concord Christian. Jonathan Taylor was second in the long jump, and the 4x400 team was second for the Kingsmen.

H-D girls third

Hillsboro-Deering placed third behind winner Conant and runner-up Wilton-Lyndeborough in a meet at Conant.

Breahna Savoy won the 800 and javelin to lead the Hillcats. Hannah Murdough (first 100 hurdles, third long jump), Emily Gibson (first 400, third 800), Shannon Thomes (first 300 hurdles, fourth 100 hurdles), Bridgette Winters (third 100, fourth 200) and Hannah Pepper (fifth javelin) also excelled.

The relay team of Murdough, Savoy, Gibson and Winters won the 4x400 and took second in the 4x100.
