Canton boys track owns longest win streak in school history

Track logo DSC_1740CANTON — It was a record-setting day for the Canton High track and field program on Tuesday at the high school track.

The boys track team won 13 of 18 events to sweep Bolton, 111-35, and Somers, 126½-23½ to improve to 11-0 and capture a school record 49th straight dual meet.

The Canton girls also beat Bolton and Somers to set a new single season school record with their eighth victory. The Warriors have put together back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in the program’s history.

The Canton boys won all three relays and picked up four individual victories from Keith Wilson in the 110 hurdles, 300 hurdles, javelin and high jump. Colin Martin won three individual events (100, 200, triple jump). Cam Daley (pole vault), John Graziano (discus) and Devin Glasson (shot) also won individual events.

With the wins, the boys track team set a new school record for most consecutive wins. The old mark was set by the Canton field hockey team from 1991 to 1993, which won 47 consecutive games. The boys cross country team won 37 in a row from 2008 to 2011. The longest winning team by a girls program is 22 straight wins by the girls basketball team in the 1998 season.

Canton’s boys track team hasn’t lost a dual meet since 2010. Canton’s final dual meet in the NCCC this season for the Warriors will be Tuesday, May 20, at Ellington when the Warriors take on Ellington (10-1) and Granby (5-6). Ellington was the last team to beat Canton in the 2010 season finale.

In the girls meet, Canton’s Lucy Tanner won three events and shared first place a fourth event – high jump. Tanner, who broke her own school record in the 100 hurdles with a winning time of 16.3 seconds, also won the 200 meters and 300 hurdles. She shared first place in the high jump with Somers’ Diane Frasca.

Tanner’s winning time in the 200 meters (27.6) broke the school record set earlier this spring by teammate Alex Martin.

Canton’s Julia Thompson swept the throwing events – taking the shot, discus and javelin. Teammate Emily Mitchell won the long jump and 100 meters. Martin (400), Abby Briggs (800), Lindsey Milligan (pole vault) and Abbe Skinner (triple jump) each won individual events.

The Canton girls are 8-3 on the season and close out the regular season next week against Ellington and Granby.
