High school track and field

Mustangs Pound, Davis, Overlock earn state 'C' titles, Vikings also strong

Mount View, Searsport student-athletes compete in state Class C championships
By Staff | Jun 02, 2019

Farmington — A handful of Mount View of Thorndike and Searsport track-and-field student-athletes certainly proved they belonged among the state's high school elite on Saturday, June 1 — and three even brought home individual championships.

Led by state title-performances from a trio of Mustangs — Sage Pound in the 1,600 meters, Shala Davis in the discus and Matthew Overlock in the javelin — Waldo County athletes initially qualified for and then competed in, at a high level, the state Class C championship meet at Mount Blue High School.

The Mustangs and Vikings had to reach qualifying distances, times and heights during previous meets to earn spots in the state championship meet.

The state champs, among others, qualified for the New England championships on Saturday, June 8 in Saco.

The New England qualifiers from Maine are based on the performances at the three state meets (Class A at Lewiston, Class B at Brewer and Class C at Mount Blue). The state champs in each event from the three classes and the next three best performances will qualify for the New England meet.

If one or more of the six qualifiers decides not to compete, then the New England field from Maine will be filled with the next best performances from the state meets.
