The Highland Park Boys Track & Field Teams had good showings on both the frosh-soph and varsity levels at the CSL Indoor Championship Meet hosted by GBN.    Below are listed some of the highlights by areas:



In the 50 Meter Dash, junior Andrew Sledd won the event and broke the school record running a blazing time of 5.8.   He also led off the winning 4X160 Meter Relay team.  The relay included seniors John Bricker, Alex Heymann, and Josh Weinberg.  The team ran 1:16.1 which is the 7th fastest all time for HPHS.


Weinberg also had a great day in the hurdles.   He finished second in both hurdle events running 8.3 in the 55 Meter High Hurdles and 7.9 in the 55 Meter Low Hurdles.
