Both boys and girls opened the CAC indoor track season with wins over Greater Lowell.
The girls won by a convincing 75-9 score. The team was lead by Stephanie Simon who won both the hurdles and the high jump with a school record jump of 4’10”. Martine Simon won the 55 dash and finished second in the high jump. Other winners included Yarid Deras in the mile, Awa Bajinka in the 300, Stephanie Rodrigues in the 600, Jocelyn Poste in the 1000, Amanda Dias in the 2 mile, and Masireh Ceesay in the shot put. It was a good start to the season with everyone working really hard to be ready just a week and a half into the season. This team has a lot of potential and will be in the mix for a CAC title this year. To do that a lot of our younger and newer athletes will have to develop into point contributors quickly.
The boys team earned a 50-32 win over Gr. Lowell. Pacing the team was senior Jose Leclerc who won the mile. Other winners included Alex Pedrero in the hurdles and the high jump, David Bui in the dash, Jazmany Reyes in the 600, Rigo Flores in the shot put, and Justin Turner in the 2 mile. The boys team has been working hard so far this season. This team is not very deep but has the potential to contend for the CAC title if we can continue to work hard and develop all the athletes we have.
This Wednesday (12/13) the boys will take on Lynn Tech and the girls will face Lynn Tech and Notre Dame of Tyngsboro. This Sunday we will travel to the Reggie Lewis center in Boston for our first major invitational of the year, the Winter Festival. Over 1,000 athletes from all over the state will be competing at this meet. It is a great opportunity for our athletes to see how they rank on the state level early in the season.
