CASTLETON, Vt. – Castleton's men's track and field is back in action on Saturday morning when it travels to the Middlebury Invitational.
This is the second time this season the Spartans will compete at Middlebury, posting a fourth-place finish at the Middlebury Winter Classic in early January. The hosts came out on top in the event, finishing with a team score of 260.
Five records were broken the last time the Spartans were at Middlebury, including records in all three disciplines.
Canute Watson set a new record in the 60-meter dash for the Spartans at the Winter Classic, running a time of 7.42 seconds. The 4x400-meter team of Sebastien Crowell, Austin Beauregard, Jackson Dwyer, and Matt Donlon set a new school-record time of 3:58.96 at the meet as well.
In the throwing discipline, Tayler Larmie shattered the school record in the shot put with a distance of 12.43 meters. Larmie also holds the school record in the weight throw, recording a distance of 12.51 meters at last weekend's Beynon Invitational. Dwyer has also competed in throwing events for the Spartans, and looks to challenge Larmie for records on a weekly basis.
In the jumping events, Donlon recorded a then-school-record distance of 5.00 meters in the long jump, but the junior bested that distance last week, recording a jump of 5.18 meters. Justin Wilkinson was stellar in his first meet as a Spartan, setting a school-record height of 3.35 meters in the pole vault.
