After the first day of the Boston Public Schools Track & Field Championships on Monday afternoon at White Stadium, the O’Bryant boys’ track team is in line to win its first outdoor track & field city title in two years.

The Tigers (49 points) lead Latin Academy by six points.

O’Bryant junior Duncan Malone qualified for states in the discus after winning the event with his throw of 120 feet, 9 inches, a personal record.

“I’m happy,” Malone said. “It was weird because it [could have been] my last thrown of my whole entire season. It was my last thrown and I pulled it off.”

Malone also finished second in the triple jump (37-10) behind South Boston’s William Arrington (39-05.50). O’Bryant freshman Brian Donna won the 400 meter hurdles in 1 minute 2.90 seconds while his teammate, Michael Allen, took the city title in the javelin with a toss of 137-09.
