Suffield's Cipcic wins twice at rain-shortened Randy Smith-Journal Inquirer track meet

May 20—MANCHESTER — On an afternoon where Mother Nature showed her might, Suffield High senior Avery Cipcic showed he was also a force of nature at the 41st edition of the Randy Smith-Journal Inquirer Invitational track meet.

Cipcic won the 110-meter hurdles, the high jump and was leading in the long jump when the meet was halted due to inclement weather at Wigren Track.

Seven events in the boys division have been officially scored while four events in the girls division are official. Additional events will become official in the coming days.

Cipcic took the 110 hurdles in 15.46 seconds, 0.40 seconds faster than East Hartford's Davian Johnson. In the high jump, Cipcic won with a leap of six feet, two inches, two inches higher than Gyan Davis of Windsor.

At the time the meet was halted, Suffield led the boys team standings with 47 points. Rockville (33) was second while Windsor (29.2) was third.

In the girls division, Somers was in front with 28 points, eight ahead of Glastonbury. Rockville was third with 17 points.

Teams will now shift their focus to their respective divisional and conference meets. The CCC East divisional meet is Monday while the CCC North and CCC West divisional and the NCCC conference meets are Tuesday.
