It was a successful cap to the league season for the Mustang boys on Wednesday as they brought home three titles from the Bay State Conference Track and Field Championships at Weymouth High.
Senior Jason Matovu was involved in two. He won the 110-meter hurdles in a time of 15.51 seconds, taking advantage of the absence of rival Connor McCarthy of Walpole in the race, and joined Jake Ryan, Aaron Cockrane and Tresor Wrensford in claiming victory in the 4x100 relay in 44.81.
Matovu nearly made it three titles, coming less than two inches short in the long jump and settling for second behind Newton North's David Oluwadara winning leap of 20 feet, 8.25 inches.
Wrensford and Cockrane were third and fifth in the 200 while Ryan was third in the 100.
Senior Matt Ivory delivered the third Norwood crown by throwing 161 feet, 6 inches in the javelin, a personal best of more than 11 feet. Mustangs coach Russ Booth had recently brought in his former thrower from Westwood and now of Providence College, Pat Bowler, to work with Ivory on his technique.
"It was a huge throw," said Booth, "He has just gotten better and better."
It was great day overall in the throws for Norwood. Dan DiTomasso placed fourth in discus and sixth in the shot put despite undergoing surgery on his non-throwing shoulder two weeks ago, while Lonsdale Garrison was third in the shot put with a season-best effort of 48-5.
The Norwood girls collected two medals as Sinead O’Brien was fifth in the 200 in 28.44 after a qualifying run of 28.01 and Jess Murphy was fifth in the long jump in 15 feet.
