Derby athlete breaks school record

DERBY - Tuesday turned out to be a pretty good day for Derby senior Eric Hicks.
The senior track athlete not only won the high jump in a personal record of 6 feet, 4 inches, but shattered the school record of 6-1, that dated back to 1961, which was held by  David Bishop.
Hicks’ mark qualified him for New Balance Outdoor Nationals in June in North Carolina and also propelled him to a tie for the second best mark in the state, according to athletic.net.
Hicks and the rest of the Derby boys’ track team won the meet against Woodland, Naugatuck and Watertown.
