Triumphs of the will

Monticello’s Terry Duncan was named the Outstanding Male Track Performer at the Jessica Fingers Memorial Invitational track meet (formerly called the Monticello Games). It was his second year in a row winning the meet’s top honor. Duncan triumphed in the 100 (11.3), 200 (32.4), and 400 (51.8) and ran a sterling 53.4 leg in the Monties’ third place finish in the 1600 relay.
