DURHAM — For the second time in as many weeks, the Prospect Mountain indoor track team hit the road to Durham for a meet at the University of New Hampshire fieldhouse on Saturday, Dec. 21.

Against some tough competition that included Division I schools Nashua South and Exeter, the Timber Wolves put together some solid results.

For the second week in a row, Cody Symonds and Drew Tuttle were the top scorers for the Timber Wolves, as they both pulled in points in two events.

In the 1,500 meters, Tuttle was fourth overall in a time of 4:32.3, followed closely by Symonds in fifth place in 4:33.4 and teammate Mike Fife came home sixth in 4:36.8 to give the Timber Wolves three scorers in the race. Dylan Tuttle also came in 15th in the same race in 4:56.2.

Drew Tuttle also took second place in the 3,000 meters, as he finished in a time of 9:32.9.

Symonds also finished with a third place finish in the 1,000 meters, crossing the line in a time of 2:42.7, while Julian Brown finished 21st in 3:29.3 and Ben Drury was 23rd in 3:55.8.

Mark Jannini also had a strong day for the Timber Wolves, as he raced to a third place finish in the 55-meter hurdles preliminary race in a time of 8.7 seconds, a new school record. He then came back and placed third in the finals in the exact same time to pick up four points for the Prospect boys.

In the long jump, Dylan Tuttle came home in ninth place with a leap of five feet. Drury finished 20th in the shot put with a toss of 30 feet, 11 inches.

In the 55 meters, Chase Plante was the lone Timber Wolf competing, finishing in 30th place in a time of 7.6 seconds, while in the 300 meters, Jannini took 30th in 44.5 seconds and Daniel Drury crossed in 39th place in 47 seconds. Alex Fife finished 26th in the 600 meters in a time of 1:56.4.

For the Timber Wolf girls, there was just one person scoring points, as Alley Rogers ran to sixth place in a time of 5:44.9.

In the 55 meters, Jamie Fogell came home in 26th place in 8.6 seconds, with Meghan Stackhouse in 40th in nine seconds.

In the 300 meters, Ally Cleary finished in 29th in a time of 55.4 seconds and in the 600 meters, Jenica Locke placed 18th overall in 2:22.7. In the 1,000 meters, Annika Patterson was 11th in 3:55.1.

Lexi Normandin qualified for the finals in the 55-meter hurdles with a preliminary time of 10.4 seconds, but did not compete in the finals. Cleary finished 10th in the same race in a time of 10.8 seconds.

Cleary also competed in the shot put with a toss of 20 feet, which placed her 15th overall.

After a week off, the Timber Wolf team will return to UNH for a meet on Sunday, Jan. 12, at 1 p.m. The team was in action after early holiday deadlines at UNH on Saturday, Dec. 28. Look for those results next week.
