High school track and field: Teamwork pays off in Southwestern Conference titles for the Avon girls and Amherst boys

AMHERST — Avon’s girls and Amherst’s boys put the team in team title Friday at the Southwestern Conference Championships on Friday at Amherst High School’s Richard S. Cooley Track.

The Eagles dominated the competition, sweeping the relays and winning three individual gold medals in claiming their second consecutive league crown. They scored 177 points, easily outdistancing second-place Amherst (134).
