Athletes from the Concord, Coe-Brown and Pembroke track teams picked up victories at the second mini elite meet of the season against some of the best track programs in the state, showing that they could be contenders for individual titles in Division I and II.

Concord’s newcomers were among the most impressive performers of the day, with freshman Ayva Mullen winning the triple jump in 33 feet, 7 inches – the longest jump recorded in D-I so far this season – and rookie senior Derek Taylor winning the boys’ triple jump with a leap of 40 feet.

Mullen also finished fifth in the 100-meter dash.

The Tide’s other victory of the day came from senior Alexis Adams, who won the javelin in 99-9.

Adams and teammate Cassie Pfitzenmayer went 4-5 in the shot put, while Pfitzenmayer was also sixth in the discus and Maria Ruelas-Arceo was sixth in the javelin.

Katherine Kennedy (second 3,200), Morgane Orcutt (third 3,200), Abby Goulas (fourth 800) and Sarah Potter (sixth triple jump) were the other top performers for the Tide girls.

Another impressive newcomer for the Concord boys – sophomore Jacque Tunguru – finished second in the 100 (11.78 seconds) and 200 (24.21), both times narrowly finishing second to Portsmouth’s Michael Schoff (11.65 in the 100, 23.65 in the 200).

Eben Bragg (second 3,200), Sam Hilts (third 800), Brayden Kearns (fifth 800) and Quinn Marino (sixth 100) were the other top finishers for the Tide boys.

Riley also finished second in the discus in 98-5, five inches behind winner Samantha Vorster of Exeter.
