Coginchaug Boys, Old Saybrook Girls Win Shoreline Championships

CLINTON — Before the Shoreline Championships, Coginchaug boys track and field coach Mike Ford let the team's captain Flynn Mollkenthin in on a little secret.

"[Ford] told me [Tuesday] that he added up the points and he thought we were going to win by a lot," Mollkenthin said. "We didn't tell anyone else because we didn't want people to think it was a guarantee."

It didn't take long for the secret to come out Wednesday.

After just a few events at the Ethel Peters Complex, it was clear the Durham school's boys and the Old Saybrook girls were bringing home the Shoreline Championships with a pair of decisive victories.
