This past weekend, our Upper School students did an outstanding job competing at the Massachusetts Middle School Track & Field Championships.

The Pike School competes at the Division III level (Small School) and students are only allowed to compete in two events. The top 8 performers in each event are state medalists. Division III had 40 schools competing this year. There were 110 schools total (Div. I - 17, Div. II - 53, Div. III - 40) at the meet.

The results for the boys division are below:
