Carrboro junior Magnus Herweyer set two meet records, while junior Theodore Winans and Maysa Araba each notched one record, as Carrboro’s track and field team swept the Mid-State Conference championships in dominating fashion Wednesday.
Competing at Burlington Cummings, Carrboro won the boys’ championship with 178 points, beating out Reidsville’s 137. Jordan-Matthews (88) was third, followed by Graham (82), Bartlett Yancey (26) and Cummings (18).
The Jaguars won the girls meet with 168 points, while Cummings had 130.5, Bartlett Yancey 73 and Jordan-Matthews 70. Reidsville (43) finished fifth and Graham (21.5) sixth.
Herweyer, who recently won the shot put and discus events at the Orange County Championships, won both of those in Wednesday’s meet by hefty margins. His meet-record put of 50 feet, 6.75 inches, was more than eight feet in front of runner-up Jawan Hammock of Reidsville (42-3.5). Herweyer’s mark with the discus, 171-8, was more than 40 feet in front of Hammock’s 124-3.5 for second place.
