The Woodridge Boys Track and Field team used a total team effort to withstand tough challenges from Streetsboro, Coventry, and Norton to win the PTC Metro Track and Field Championship Meet Friday night at Crestwood. The win, along with their regular season title, secures the outright 2017 PTC Metro Track and Field Championship for the Dogs after finishing as Co-Champs with Coventry last season.
Jacob Mally defended both of his 2016 hurdle titles on his way to scoring 30 points for meet. Evan Wagner scored the hurdles as well, placing 5th in the 300 meter race. Mally also grabbed 2nd in the high jump and was joined on the 2nd place 1600 meter relay team by Dijon White, Zach Conroy, and Max Starvaggi. Starvaggi also captured the 800 meter title. Leo Ramsey continued the outstanding day for the distance crew, running a season best to take 7th in the 800 meters. Ryan Palm and Noah Perrin went 1-2 in the 3200 meter run. The pair returned to finish 2nd and 4th in the 1600 meters. Deandre Smith, King Alfred Sanders, Aaron Richardson, and King Alcardon Sanders all scored events for the Dogs.
Woodridge will return to action Thursday at the Bedford Division 2 District meet where they will begin State competition.
