Chugiak’s boys track and field team continued to show why they’re the team to beat this season with another impressive victory Saturday at the Anchorage Invitational meet at Dimond High.

The Mustangs racked up 129 points to outdistance second-place West Valley by 22.5 points.

Chugiak also won the 4x100 and 4x200 relays.

Carter Gladwill finished third in the 400 and 800 to lead the 10th place Eagle River boys.

The Chugiak girls also finished on the podium in third place with 77 points, just seven behind team champion Dimond (84) and second-place South (81). Brooklynn Gould led the Mustangs with a victory in the 300 hurdles and a second-place finish in the 100 hurdles. Breanna Day finished second to Eagle River’s Emily Walsh in the 3,200 for Chugiak, which also won the 4x100 and 4x200 relays.

Walsh also finished second in the 800 and 1,600 for the fifth-place Eagle River girls, who got a win from Morgan Bolin in the 100 hurdles.
