Jonathan Law’s Naheim Washington, Chris Wootton, Thomas Bretthauer and Shane Pritchard placed fourth in the 4x100 relay at the State Open in New Britain.

Danbury was first in the girls meet, followed by Glastonbury and Weston.

Hillhouse was boys’ champ. Hall was second and New Milford third.

It was the last scholastic competition of the season.

“On a normal year this would qualify the boys for New England’s,” Law coach Joe Beler said. “Our 4x400 boys relay with Thomas Bretthauser, Ethan Harrigan, Jackson Warters and Chris Wootton shattered the school record by two seconds running a 3:25.89 to take sixth place.”

Warters, a junior, ran a personal record of 41.02 and placed 11th in the 300 intermediate hurdles.

Beler said: “Freshman Caden Simpson broke her own school record again with a 15.54 and placed fourth at Opens. This time would qualify her for New England’s and Freshman Nationals.”
