How Sweep it is!

Bedford left little doubt on who the top track program in the state is this year by sweeping the Division 1 championship meet on both the girls and boys side. The Pinkerton Boys had an outstanding meet outperforming their expected point total to distance themselves from third place finisher Nashua South and claim the runners-up plaque.  On the girls side behind Bedford it was host Portsmouth holding off Concord for the runner-up finish. Congrats to all the teams and individuals for their outstanding performances on the hot day at Portsmouth.  Thank you to the host school Portsmouth High School, Lancertiming, the officials, and of course the crew from NH Track and Field for the pics, videos, and interviews.
