Hillhouse boys claim Class M track title

Buoyed by junior Chris Turner’s victory in the 55-meter dash and a winning 4x400 relay team, Hillhouse cruised to the Class M state championship Friday at the New Haven Athletic Center.

The Academics compiled 61 points to easily outdistance runner-up Woodland (37). Sheehan was fifth (30). Hillhouse won its first indoor state title since 1998.

"I pretty much told the boys that it was theirs to lose," Hillhouse coach Gary Moore said. "If they came with their ‘A’ game, they would win. They did a great job today."

In a competitive girls’ portion, Nonnewaug and Weaver tied for first place with 58 points. Career was third (56) and Hillhouse fourth (55).
