Brunswick collected 36 team points to finish seventh out of 13 teams at the NEPSTA Division II Championships, held at Williston Northampton on Saturday. The Bruins set a number of school records at the event, as Harry Barringer led the team with three podium finishes.
Barringer scored 16 team points in three events for the Bruins. Barringer tossed the javelin a school-record distance (157’ 8”), good for second place and eight team points. In the 200-meter finals, Barringer finished in third with a time of 23:21 (four points), as the speedster was fifth in the 100-meters (11.68), adding two more points to the team total.
George Varvel’s third-place in the long jump (20' 10.5") along with a sixth-place leap in the triple jump (40’ 5.5”) gave Brunswick seven more team points.
Matching fourth-place results by Jack Michalik (400-meters, 52:24) and Jack Withstandley (300-meter hurdles, 43:11) bumped-up the Bruins’ point total by eight. Michalik and Withstandley’s times, both fully-automatic timed results, are new school records.
Nadji Ngbokoli rounded out the scoring, posting one point for a sixth-place finish in the 200-meter dash (23:60), 0:39 seconds behind Barringer’s third-place result.
