The girls team continues to work hard and roll. It is a special team to have so many great athletes who work so hard to push each other. Next week is a big week for this team with NDA and Gr. Lowell both on the schedule and on the road. After that we turn our attention to the championship meets. Our goal all season long has been to make an impact at the state meet. Our girls are starting to get into top form and with more effort and work, we should be able to realize this goal.
The boys had a terrific day with wins over Mystic Valley and previously undefeated Whittier. This vaults the boys to a record of 6-1 and current tie for first place in the CAC with Shawsheen Tech. The boys earned this hard fought win. Adriel Cedano continues to have a banner season with wins in the 400m (54.71), triple jump (36’4″), and high jump (6’5″). Jose Leclerc was a double winner in the 2 mile and the 800m (2:13). Freshman Demetrius Martinez won his first mile in a time of 5:25. Nick Ieng won the shot put with a toss of 36’4″. Bryan Rivas had a great day taking second in both the 400 hurdles (62.75) and the triple jump (37’1″). The turning point of the meet was the first and second we took in the mile. The nail that sealed the meet was the first and second we took in the 800m. The training that they have done this season and in previous seasons is paying off for us. We are by far one of the smallest teams in the conference but we are the most determined. Every boy on this team does multiple events and does them well. We are in much greater shape than our opponents and this team refuses to lose. The boys control their own destiny at this point with a tough Gr. Lowell up next Tuesday.
