Spring Athletes Excel

Wayland athletes played well this spring, but a number of standout performances highlighted the spring season.  The boys tennis team finished their season with a 12-1 record.  Pawel Pieta `16 and Ray Ren `16 both won their matches at the sectional tournament and qualified for the state tournament.  Jerry Wu `16 and Alex Kolbel `17 also had great seasons, finishing 11-5 and 15-2 respectively.

In track, a pair of school records fell, as Jessie Neuman `16 set a new mark in the 400 meter dash with a time of 1:02:96 and Maggie Sanderson `15 ran the 100 meter hurdles in 17 seconds.  Three students performed exceptionally well in the Sectionals and will advance to the State Track Meet this weekend: Alex Idonije `16 in the triple jump and long jump; Maggie Sanderson `15 in the pole vault; and Jeff Birori `15 in the 3200 meters.
