Snide dominates Southern Vermont Decathlon

Posted

WESTMINSTER — D.J. Snide shattered the overall score record and broke four event records on his way to becoming the winner of the 9th annual Southern Vermont Decathlon, which took place recently at Bellows Falls Union High School.

After winning the Vermont High School Decathlon Championship for the Terriers in 2016 and 2017, Snide continued his track & field career at the University of Vermont. As a sophomore this spring, he added an America East Conference Championship in the decathlon. Now, he can add a Southern Vermont Decathlon championship to his trophy collection.

Snide set event records in the 400 meter dash, long jump, shot put, and the 110 meter low hurdles. He also showed off his incredible versatility by winning eight of the 10 events.

In second was Brian Lashway, who was the only athlete to finish in the top three in all 10 events. This is the eighth time in nine years he has finished in the top three overall. Lashway's lone event victory came in the one-mile run.

Other notable achievements included Dan Barile rounding out the podium by finishing in third overall, John Lonardo winning the frisbee field goals event in dominating fashion, Jess Curtis being the top female finisher, and Floyd Buck being awarded the Perrin Cup.
