Greenwich’s Esme Daplyn places fourth in 600-meter run at State Open, sprint medley finishes third for Cardinals

Greenwich sophomore Esme Daplyn, pictured here during the cross country season this past fall, has enjoyed an outstanding winter indoor track season for the Cardinals. She placed fourth at the State Open in the 600-meter run.

Behind Esme Daplyn’s impressive performance in the 600-meter run and a strong showing in the 1600-meter sprint medley, Greenwich’s girls indoor track and field team produced standout results at yesterday’s CIAC State Open Indoor Track and Field Championships at the Floyd Little Athletic Center in New Haven.

Daplyn finished fourth in the 600-meter event at the State Open, crossing the finish line in 1:39.11 for the Cardinals. A sophomore, Daplyn has excelled in the event all season. She won the 600 at the CIAC Class LL Championships last week, posting a time of 1:38.82.

In the 1600-meter sprint medley race, senior Kayla Egan, senior Olivia Eslava, junior Haley Townsend and Daplyn combined for a third-place finish at the State Open with a time of 4:24.58.

The 4×200-meter relay race at the State Open saw the Cardinals’ foursome of Egan, Eslava, Townsend and junior Kaitlin Fay register an eighth-place finish in 1:49.82.

Greenwich placed 17th in the team standings out of 46 teams at the State Open.
