HANOVER — Against some of the toughest competition they've seen all year, the Prospect Mountain indoor track kids put up some solid numbers and even broke a school record at Sunday's State Meet at Dartmouth College.

The Prospect 4X800-meter relay team of Jesse Brown, Ben McGinnis, Drew Tuttle and Greg Tinkham raced to fourth overall with a time of 8:33.79, setting a new school record for the indoor season and the second fastest time in the event in either outdoor or indoor track.

The Timber Wolf 4X400-meter team of Brown, Ben McGinnis, Matt McGinnis and Tinkham came within three-tenths of a second of setting a new personal best, as they crossed the line in 3:44.48 to take sixth place overall. The boys did win their heat by a healthy margin.

Tinkham ran to seventh place overall in the 600 meters, as he finished in 1:29.55, while Ben McGinnis took 11th place in 1:38.69.

Courtney Bennett was the lone girl competing for Prospect Mountain and she came home seventh overall in the 3,000 meters, crossing the line in 11:24.10.

She then came back to race to 12th in the 1,500 meters later in the day, completing that race in 5:24.30.

"I'm proud of these guys," coach John Tuttle said. "There's some great competition, some really good runners.

"I couldn't be happier," he added.
