The Sandwich girls dominated Nauset in track and field on Wednesday bringing home a 93-39 win. It was an afternoon of sweeps for SHS as the team claimed the top three spots in six events and posted 10 first-place finishes.

Although Captain Molly Travers did not compete because of illness, she led the team recording splits and cheering her teammates on.”
