The winter track sectionals were held on Friday and Verona High School’s boys team captured first place while the girls team came in second.

Owen Fogarty took first in pole vault, clearing 14′ and Isaac Skrivanic threw for the top spot in shot put. On the girls side, Erin Petrino finished first in pole vault and Veronica Valera was first in the 3200m.

With strong finishes in many events, both teams will now be sending large contingents to the Group championships next weekend.
