NEW BRITAIN — It was a day for the ducks.
They splashed as long as they could but heavy rains suspended the 2019 Class LL girls outdoor track championship at about 6:25 p.m. Wednesday night at Willowbrook Park in New Britain.
There are 12 events left in the girls championship to be completed and scored: javelin, shot put, long jump, high jump, discus, triple jump, 400, 300 hurdles, 800, 200, 3200, 4×400 relay.
The meet will resume — weather permitting — at 12:30 p.m. Thursday at Willowbrook Park.
The Danbury High School girls — the FCIAC champions — currently hold a narrow lead in the team title race.
Athletes who were crowned Class LL champions Wednesday included Trumbull’s 4×800 relay, Amity’s 4×100 relay, NFA’s Paige Martin (pole vault), Greenwich’s Mari Noble (1,600), Ludlowe’s Tess Stapleton (100-meter hurdles) and Danbury freshman Alanna Smith (100-meter dash).
