MANCHESTER — Tuesday’s track meet at Knapp Field served as a last chance for local athletes to qualify for the upcoming Southern Vermont League (SVL) Championships, as well as the state track meet and the Essex Invitational.

Mount Anthony had a handful of athletes do just that. While TreVaughn Barboza technically qualified for both the SVL and Division I state meet in the long jump during the Queensbury Invitational on Saturday, he had an even better leap of 18’ 5’ on Tuesday, a personal best.

The jumping events were kind to MAU athletes in Manchester, as both River Scoggins and John Garland reached the requirements to compete at SVL’s.

Long Trail’s Luca Goff won the high jump for the boys, while Arlington’s Sidney Herrington grabbed the victory in the girls event.

Patriot Alexa Sprague also qualified for SVL’s in the girls javelin, placing third in the event. Teammate Tiffany Carey placed second, with West Rutland’s Isabell Lanfear winning.

Patriot sprinter Kaiden Mailhot ran a 12.91 second 100 meter dash, qualifying him for SVL’s while Thomas Scheetz qualified in the 1500 meter.
