Boys Track and Field Performer of the Year: Peter Merritt, Gilman, senior
(Performer of the Year) (Gene Sweeney Jr., Baltimore Sun / May 30, 2012)
Peter Merritt is a model of that formula.
At the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association championship meet, the senior anchored the winning 1,600- and 3,200-meter relay teams. He also won the high jump and the 800.
All in all, he helped Gilman score 40 points as the Greyhounds rolled to a fourth straight team title.
Also an All-Metro selection for indoor track, Merritt will run next year at Yale. He was on Gilman's varsity as a freshman and served as a captain his last two years.
