Hall had 67 points just in the track events, scoring in seven of 11 races.
The Warriors had 67 points in track events. Senior Trey Cormier repeated as state champion in the 1600 (4:17.77), edging Xavier junior Robbie Cozean (4:17.81). Cormier also took fourth place in the 3200.
In another close finish, Hall senior Miller Anderson won the 800 (1:56.59) over Xavier senior Pierre Sylvain (1:56.71).
Hall dominated the relays, accumulating a total of 26 points. With Anderson running the anchor leg, the Warriors set a Class L record in the 4×800 (7:52.96). The previous mark (8:01.02) was set by Ridgefield in 2005.
