The annual New England Interscholastic track games were held on Worcester Oval, Saturday afternoon. No records were broken on account of the rain, which made the track heavy and the take-offs soft, but all the times and distances were very good.
Worcester Academy won the championship easily with a total of 36 3-4 points; Worcester High School and Exeter were second and third respectively with 20 3-4 and 18 3-4 points.
A. F. Duffy, W. A., made the best individual performances. He won both dashes, the 100 yards in 10 1-5s. and the 220 in 22 4-5s. This was remarkably good running considering the heavy track.
G. Hersey and W. A. Hersey of Exeter, also did good work in the dashes, hurdles and broad jump. Together they won 16 of Exeter's 18 3-4 points; W. W. Coe of Hopkinson's School, won the hammer throw, but was beaten in the shot put by Spear, W. A. Coe has put the shot 40 ft. in practice but he loses his snap in competition. The other winners were Batchelder, Waban School, in the half mile; Edson, W. H., in the low hurdles; Converse, Hale's in the high jump; Winslow, C. H. and L., in the 440 yards dash; and Shuber, W. A., in the pole vault.
The winners of the different events will be sent by the association to compete at the National Interscholastic meet which will be held in New York next Friday.
