Mattituck-Mercy girls track 041816

While the final event of the evening played out, the real drama occurred on the infield grass at Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School’s Harold T. Murray Memorial Field. Mattituck assistant coach Julie Milliman and McGann-Mercy coach Collin Zeffer knelt down on the infield grass with pens and paper in hand, calculating the scores of the various events in their girls track and field meet.

A tie. Dead even.
