Avon boys split with Simsbury and Hall in track and field; Avon girls swept

WEST HARTFORD, May 1 – Zach Tilsch won the 100 meters and was second in the triple jump as the Avon High boys track and field team beat Simsbury, 83-67, but dropped a 108-41 decision to Hall in a four-team meet at Hall High on Tuesday. The Falcons (3-3, 2-3 CCC West) did not score against Northwest Catholic since they competed against the Lions in early April.

Tilsch beat Hall’s Desmond Richards by 0.01 of a second in the 100 meters with a time of 11.6 seconds. Tilsch took second in the triple jump.

Anish Rajamanickam won the 400 meters for Avon while Daniel Rock had a pair of top three finishes in the shot and discus. Rock was second in the discus and third in the shot.

Rhiannon Richmond swept the 1,600 and 3,200 meters to lead the Avon girls, who dropped a 88-62 decision to Simsbury and a 89-60 decision to Hall. Teammate Haley Gens was third in the 1,600 and 3,200 for Avon, now 2-4 and 1-4 in the CCC West.

Carly Carpino won the 300 hurdles and came in a virtual tie for first place in the 100 hurdles with Northwest Catholic’s Katherine Jacobs in 15.38 seconds. But Jacobs was awarded the victory.

Molly Milligan won the triple jump and set a new school record with a leap of 35 feet, 3½ inches, breaking the previous mark of 34-9¾ set by Carpino at the NCCC championships in May 2015.
