Goodwin, Amuso, Freudig lead in virtual meet series



BAR HARBOR — A few more runners and throwers joined in the virtual track and field meet this weekend, the second in a series organized by Mount Desert Island High School track and field coach Aaron Long. This week’s field included 28 athletes representing 13 towns and two states. 

Seal Cove seventh grader Rachel Goodwin leads the series in shot put so far, and also stands at second place in long jump and third place in both discus and the 100-meter sprint. 

Mount Desert Island High School junior Bea Amuso leads in discus. She’s also in second place in the 100-meter sprint and is the leading local runner in that event. 

Ben Freudig, a Mount Desert Island High School senior, leads the men’s series in long jump as well as both the 100-meter and 400-meter sprints. 

The third and final meet is set for this weekend. Prior to competing, athletes are asked to register by email, and the more the merrier. An athlete’s best mark for each event should be completed Friday, Saturday or Sunday and submitted by 3 p.m. Sunday. 

More information is available in a rules and guidelines document available on the MDI Track & Field Facebook page. 

Participants are reminded that AOS 91 school facilities are closed and may not be used for the virtual meets or for practicing. Runners are also reminded to run in well-lit areas and not in traffic.
