Williams leads 1-2 finish in long jump

HANOVER – Viankah Williams’ hamstrings are just fine, thank you.

The Milford High School junior electrified the Leverone Fieldhouse here at Dartmouth Sunday with her rousing anchor run in the 4×200.

But it was earlier in the day, when Williams soared to victory with a long jump at 16-7 that she sent the message to the rest of the Division II.

“This is my third meet back, and I’m very happy,” said Williams. “As long as I got the win, I really wanted to win for the team. We needed that 10 points.”

The Spartans actually got 18 as freshman teammate Renee Wilson was right behind in second at 16-4.

“Renee is awesome,” said the Milford tri-captain. “I’m so glad she got second. She’s only a freshman, I’m just so proud of her.”

Talk about grinding, Spartan tri-captain Lauren Robinson covered more ground than anyone in the place to pick up 16 huge points for Milford.

Robinson was third in the 1500 and the 3000 and then also took fifth in the 1000. Souhegan took 2-3 in the 1000 with Jane Leighton and Marissa Romano.

For Souhegan, Hannah Rowe was fourth in the long jump and fifth in the dash. Arielle Zlotnick was also fifth in the 3000.

Milford’s Robyn Krafft was fifth in the shot put with a heave of 32-5.

Division II boys

On the boys side, Campbell’s Trevor Gomes dominated the long jump with a leap of 20-11.25

Milford got a second in the shot put from Michael Boucher and a second in the 4×400. Blake Audibert was fifth in the 1500.
