WHS Track Teams Shine at CIAC DeJesus Dominates “MM” Pole Vault

STATE CHAMP - Adding to her laurels prior to graduating next week, Kelsey DeJesus of Watertown High School won the CIAC’s Class ‘MM’ pole vaulting championship, clearing 10’ 6,” one foot better than runnerup Amando Pedro of RHAM.

NEW BRITAIN - “I’ve never seen anything like this spring.” That spot-on observation by Watertown High School track team coach Brian LaFontaine came after his hale-and-hearty team competed at the CIAC State Meet over the course of two days and two different sites as teams dealt with Mother Nature.

“Thanks to the great year our athletes had there we had them competing throughout the day, which kept us pretty busy, while keeping another eye on the skies,” said LaFontaine.
