Competing at the Coach P. Invite at Moravian College, Hibbert (New Castle, Del./William Penn) won both the 100-meter and 200-meter events, beating out teammate Tyler Levons in each event.
He ran a personal best in each event as well, winning the 100-meter race with time of 11.14 second while winning the 200-meter event with a time of 22.66. Hibbert was also the third leg of the 4x200-meter relay team, crossing the line in 3:49.38.
Junior thrower Joshua Varghese once again earned a spot on the CACC Honor Roll for his efforts in the field, winning the hammer throw, placing second in the shot put, and third overall in the discus last weekend.
