WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. – The final day of the NCAA Division III New Englands Track and Field Championship on Saturday featured only a few scattered showers, a huge improvement over the previous day. Gusts of up to 44mph made the day tough still but the athletes remained composed and gave it their all.
Green Mountain College sent its first-ever men's track and field competitor to the meet as DeNaugio Scarlett competed in the high jump after posting a personal best height of 1.89m in his victory at the NAC Championships the previous weekend.
The freshman cleared 1.81m in his opening height on his first attempt and made a decision to pass at the second height of 1.86m which he has cleared on multiple occasions this spring.
Unfortunately, with less than ideal conditions, Scarlett was unable to clear the next height of 1.91m and as a result placed 22nd overall with his first made height of 1.81m.
Scarlett finishes the year having set several new standards for the men's track and field program with new school record heights, new conference record heights and the program's first NAC Rookie of the Year award all as a freshman.
