FAIRFIELD — In his first year as head coach of both the boy's and girl's track and field teams at St. Cecilia, Alan VanCura has been encouraged by how they have started the season.
It has been a challenging spring because of the weather, but the runners, throwers and jumpers in blue haven't been deterred, and have set high standards early in the season.
The Bluehawks (116 points) won a competitive boys title at the Sandy Creek invite Tuesday. Sandy Creek was third (99.33), but for a time was tied at the top with STC in the standings. Sutton was fourth with 91 points, while Harvard was sixth with 41.
