WESTMINSTER -- Using depth as their biggest advantage, the Westminster boys won their 10th consecutive championship and the girls successfully defended their 1990 title in yesterday's Carroll County track and field competition at Western Maryland College.
The boys placed in every event for a 51-point victory over runner-up Francis Scott Key. The girls had a 63-point edge over second-place Liberty.
Jeff LiBerge won two events and was third in another. However, he failed to clear the opening height in the pole vault two weeks after achieving the best vault ever by a Maryland high school athlete. He cited the unusually fast Western Maryland surface and the tight time frame for his four events as reasons for the miss in his signature event.
