Intersholastic Meeting.

A successful meeting of the Interscholastic Association was held on Holmes Field yesterday afternoon. The audience was large, the track fast, and several records were broken. Worcester Academy won by a good margin, with English High and Andover second and third. Worcester High, the winner of the prize cup last year made a poor showing, scoring but four points. Mills, of the Berkeley School, won the mile run easily in 4m. 33 4-5s., breaking the record. Hanson, of the English High, ran the half mile in 2m. 1 1-5s., and Boardman of Noble's School rode the mile bicycle race in 2m. 35 4-5s, both being new records. The pole vault was a close contest between Johnson of Worcester Academy and Clapp of Williston. Johnson finally won by a vault of 10 ft. 9 in., breaking the record by 2 inches. Shirk of Worcester Academy equalled the record in the 120 yd. hurdle; but failed to break it.
