COVENTRY, May 6 – With victories in 15 of 18 events, the Canton High boys track and field team is on the verge of setting a new school record for consecutive victories. The Warriors won their 47th straight dual meet on Tuesday with victories over league rivals Coventry, 125-25 and Sport Medicine Science Academy, 139-9.

That ties the mark 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 (9-0, 9-0 NCCC) hasn’t lost a dual meet since 2010. Canton can set the record next Tuesday when they host Somers and Bolton at home. The final dual meet in the NCCC this season for the Warriors will be Tuesday, May 20, at Ellington when the Warriors take on Ellington (8-1) and Granby (4-5).

Ellington was the last team to beat Canton in the 2010 season finale.

On this Saturday, Canton will be competing at the 83rd Greater Hartford Invitational in Simsbury, which will feature dozens of teams and hundreds of competitors.

On Tuesday, Canton’s depth was overwhelming against Coventry, Sports Medicine Science Academy and the American School for the Deaf. Canton declined to score against ASD.

Keith Wilson (javelin, long jump) and Colin Martin (100, 400) each won two events for the Warriors. Nico Tuccillo (200), Matt Sullivan (3,200), Cam Daley (110 hurdles), Wyatt Campbell (300 hurdles), Ian LaClair (shot), John Graziano (discus), Devin Glasson (high jump) and Steve Oliver (pole vault) won individual events for Canton.

The Canton High girls track team improved to 6-3 on the season with a 87-62 win over Coventry and a 102-34 win over Sport Science Medical Academy. Eliza Chekas (1,600), Lucy Tanner (300 hurdles, high jump) and Emily Chouinard (pole vault) each won events for Canton, which finished second in 10 of 14 individual events.
