Local track athletes compete in NH Decathlon & Heptathlon

Unbeknownst to many and certainly out of the spotlight, the high school track and field season for Lakes Region students did not end with the New England Championships in Connecticut. Last weekend a number of local athletes competed in the NH Boys Decathlon and the Girls Heptathlon in Nashua. This allowed students from DI, DII, and DIII schools to compete together. Students who placed in the top 25 received plaques. Mitchell Jurius of Inter-Lakes achieved 17th place for the boys, while for the girls Jaila Remillard of Winnisquam finished in 10th place and was closely followed by Molly Dietrich(11th) and Becky Zachrochemny(16th), both of Gilford. Molly was also first in the javelin. Other boys who competed were Michael Skelley(Gilford), Brendan Adair and Matt Macdonald(Newfound), Dylan Tuttle(Prospect Mountain), and Riley Campbell and Henry Stock(Winnisquam). Other girls were Sarah Veazey from Gilford; and from Winnisquam, Kaylyn Dion, Caitlin Dumont, Melissa Mekula, Tea Michaloski, and Abigael Sleeper.
