COXSACKIE — Feshman Neil Howard III shattered a school record he set just last week with a 13-11 effort in the pole vault to spark Taconic hills to a 106-15 victory over Catskill in Tuesday’s Patroon Conference boys track and field meet.

Catskill also fell to Coxsackie-Athens, 117-13.

Howard had broke a record that stood for 40 years at Taconic Hills last week with a 13-3 vault, but surpassed that mark by eight inches on Tuesday.

He also won the 800-meter run and the long jump. Teammates Josh Hemmings and Eli Russo were double winners, Hemming taking the shot put and discus and Russo winning the 3,200-meter run and 1,600-meter run.
