NEW HAVEN, CT — The Floyd Little Athletic Center on the campus of Hillhouse High School was abuzz with excitement Saturday afternoon, as three new records were established in the State Open indoor track and field championships.
Tess Stapleton of Fairfield Ludlowe erased the record for the 55 meter hurdles that had stood for more than two decades. She crossed the finish line in 8.04 seconds, topping the 8.11 mark set by Keisha Houghton of Hillhouse in 1999.
Gavin Sherry of Conard destroyed the former record in the 3200 meter run by more than 13 seconds, finishing in 8:54.47. The former mark of 9:07.63 had been run by Christian Alvarado of Fairfield Prep in 2014.
Paige Martin of Norwich Free Academy broke her own pole vault record of 12 feet, one-half inch set last year, clearing 12-6.
Stapleton was the lone double winner of individual events, capturing the long jump event in addition to the hurdles.
In team competition, the Bloomfield boys cruised to victory with 56 points, well ahead of co-runners-up Bristol Central and Wilbur Cross, who each recorded 20. On the girls’ side, Glastonbury compiled 54 points to best the 37 of runner-up Weston.
