LISBON — When Nicholas Harriman got out of class Tuesday, his immediate thought was to change into his track uniform and head to the bus for yet another road meet.

 

It wasn't until a fellow teammate told him there was no reason to head to the bus that it dawned on the Lisbon junior distance runner that, for the first time in his career or any of his teammates' careers, the Greyhounds were hosting a track-and-field event.

Julian Hubbard had gone too far to let a foot foul completely wipe out what at first glance seemed like, by his analysis, a “ridiculously far” jump.

 

So, between jumps at last weekend’s meet at the University of Massachusetts, the University of Maine junior triple jumper asked a track official for permission to measure his last jump, even though it wouldn’t count because he’d over-stepped the takeoff mark by half a shoe.
