Boys Track

’Canes win

Thaemon Mitchell won four events to lead New Castle to an 85-65 win over visiting Hopewell.

Mitchell copped victories in the 400 relay, the high jump, the long jump and the triple jump.

“I am very pleased at the way the team performed today,” New Castle coach Bill Croach said. “Our team is starting to come around and we have a lot of hard workers.

“Thaemon Mitchell was outstanding, winning four events. Breaking six-feet in the high jump is tough to do, but he did it. Khalil Huddleston had a solid meet. Mike Mazzanti played a key role in our victory. We were going to rest him a little, but after Alex Shepherd false started in the 110-meter hurdles — a sure win — we had to turn to Mike. We tell him what we need him to win for the team and he does just that.”
