Woodland boys’ track second in Class M

NEW HAVEN — He’s an oddity at the start line: Standing erect, while his fellow hurdlers crouch in their blocks, legs cocked like the gun about to signal the beginning of their race.

Despite—or, perhaps, because of—his unorthodox posture, Woodland’s Brandon Fowler posted the fourth-fastest time in the 55-meter hurdles at Friday’s Class M indoor track and field championships at the New Haven Athletic Center then finished third in the 300 and anchored the second-place four-by-400 meter relay team. The senior’s efforts helped the Naugatuck Valley League champion Hawks tally 37 points and finish second overall, behind only mighty host Hillhouse High.

Moriello breaks Class L 1,000m record

NEW HAVEN — Rosa Moriello earned her wings Thursday at the Class L indoor track and field championships at the New Haven Athletic Center. The Naugatuck senior broke a six-year-old meet record in the 1,000-meter run, winning in two minutes, 58.94 seconds, a feat that may inspire a little artwork on her feet.

“I made a deal with my dad that if I broke the school record, I would ‘earn my wings,’” Moriello said, grinning. “I want to get a tattoo of those [Apollo] wings on my ankles.”

“You can always change your mind,” replied an alarmed NHS coach Bill Hanley. “A tattoo is forever. Would you want your middle school haircut forever?”

MANCHESTER — Just six days after the class meets, at which no girl could break the 19-minute mark, six went sub-19 Friday afternoon in a blazing State Open at Wickham Park.
