Manteo wins home track meet

Manteo High School played host to Cape Hatteras for a season opening track and field meet last Wednesday.

Jania Charity won three events and Tiffany Fenz won two, which helped Manteo girls claim a 45-6 win over the visiting Hurricanes. In competition for boys, Aldo Herrera was a double winner for Manteo, which helped the Redskins post an 82-11 win.

Madison Flynn set a new school record in the girls 800 meter run with her first place finish. Her time of 2:41.59 met the qualifying standard for the regional meet later this season.

Overall, Manteo girls scored heavily in sprints and distance events as did Manteo boys, who also gained a number of points in the relay and throwing events.
