Pingree Boys' Varsity Track team wins 2017 EIL Championship.
The Highlanders of the Pingree Boys' Varsity Track team came out on top with 155 points at the EIL Track and Field Championships at Marianapolis Prep this past weekend. This is the program's first title in five years. The team has been breaking school records left and right this season, with a highly talented roster of hard-working athletes.
Junior standout Ricky Arias has broken a number of records this season, with top times and scores in the High Jump (5'11), 100m (11.1), 200m (22.2), and 400m (53.1). He was victorious in both the 100m (11.44) and 200m (22.95) and teamed up with Zeke Ebieshuwa '17, Ryan Giunta '17, and Jackson Latimer '17 to win the 4x100 relay (44.68) at Saturday's EIL Championships. Arias, Guinta, Latimer, and Carl Williams '19 placed second in the 4x400 (3:35.83), setting a new Pingree record in the process. Williams also won the High Jump (5-8) and Giunta won the Triple Jump (39-6.5). Another winner from the day was John Fay '17, who secured the top score in the Long Jump (19-5).
Congratulations to the entire Varsity Boys Track team!
