Upon further review: Hillsborough boys won Nash Higgins, not Robinson

Hillsborough High boys track team didn’t win Saturday’s Manuel-Griffin-Fraundorfer Relays it hosted Saturday, but the Terriers still managed to leave the meet with a first-place trophy.
That’s because Robinson boys track coach Manuel Montero is an honest guy, and when he went back over the results from last month’s Nash Higgins Relays, he noticed his team was given five points it actually didn’t score in the high jump.
So instead of the Knights edging Hillsborough 55-52.5 for the boys title, they actually lost to the Terriers by 2.5 points.
Montero brought the trophy to Saturday’s met at Hillsborough and gave it to Terriers coach Joe Sipp. Robinson got the runners-up trophy.
“I wasn’t going to keep something we didn’t earn,” Montero said. “Hey, I’m excited our guys took second. We’ve really been moving up the last few years at Nash Higgins.”
The girls team results remain the same from Nash Higgins, with Steinbrenner taking first and Wharton second.
