The Milford High boys’ track & field team competed Jan. 5 in its second meet of the 2010-11 indoor series held at the Worcester County Recreational Center in Snow Hill, Md. The boys performed strongly, placing sixth with 42 points amongst 19 teams from Delaware and Maryland.
   

“Everyone is doing their best and achieving their goals,” said Milford High junior pole vaulter Derek Munce.
Senior Alex Vantine earned a bid to the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association state meet to be held Feb. 12 at the University of Delaware by running 6.6 seconds to place second in the 55-meter dash, while junior Taiwan Savage earned a spot as well in the 400-meter dash with a 54.3.   

Savage described the feeling as “great.” “It’s the first step towards greatness for me,” said Savage, who also helped the 3200-meter relay team to a fourth-place finish.

Freshman Ryan Thomas finished second in triple jump with his best of 38 feet, 9.5 inches, narrowly missing qualifying. Junior Carl Richardson also just missed qualifying with a vault of 10 feet to place in the top 6 finishers.

Milford will return to Snow Hill Jan. 12 and continue to try to qualify athletes for the state competition. The Bucs will also compete in the Henlopen Conference Championship to be held Friday, Jan. 28 at the Snow Hill facility.

 Here’s a look at Milford High’s place winners (the top 6 finishers in each event score points for their team in the invitational):
