The Danbury girls indoor track team claimed third place at last weekend’s State Open, and continued its busy schedule Tuesday by sending athletes to the 85th Eastern States Games at The Armory in New York.
The Hatters turned in several excellent performances in advance of the end of the indoor season, which includes New Englands (Boston, March 2) and Nationals (The Armory, March 8-10). The distance medley relay team of Daniella Grullon-Pena, Alex Chakar, Stephanie Queiroz and Lauren Moore ran a 12:15.77, good for third in the event and the 13th fastest time nationally this winter.
Meilee Kry finished fifth in the long jump (18-02) and took 10th in the triple jump (34-10.75). Kry finished third at the State Open with a leap of 17-07.50.
