NEW BRITAIN — Southington seniors Megan Biscoglio and Amanda Howe, the reigning Record-Journal Field Athletes of the Year, added to their resumes Wednesday with first-place performances at the CIAC Class LL Championship Meet at Veterans Stadium.

And so did another Southington senior better known for her basketball prowess: Janette Wadolowski.

A record-breaking performance by Biscoglio was not unexpected. She cleared 12-5 during the regular season.

As for Howe, the Iowa-bound thrower was a double-winner. The reigning New England discus champion captured the shot put at 39-9 and later won her signature event at 134-7.

As for Wadolowski, the All-State basketball player earned All-State status in a new endeavor. She won the javelin with a throw of 117-8.

Wadolowski led a triumvirate of Blue Knights in the javelin. Mikaela June was fifth (106-6) and Julia Groll (103-1) was seventh.

Also for Southington, Trinity Cardillo was fourth in the shot (35-8¼) and Natalie Verderame placed sixth in the 400 (1:00.63). Those points helped the Lady Knights place fifth in the team standings.

The Southington boys were led by senior pole vaulter Zach Burleigh. He finished third at 13-6.

Jamie Lamson was fourth in the javelin (143-9) and John Terray was fifth in the long jump (21-0).

The Cheshire boys were led by their seniors, sprinter Liam Killea, distance runner Brendan Murray and thrower Andrew Zebarth.

Killea placed fourth in the 400 (50.16) and Murray did the same in the 3200 (9:19.85). Zebarth earned points in both the discus (5th, 128-6) and shot put (6th, 44-0).
