Last Wednesday, the Chelsea girl’s split their tri-meet at Notre Dame Academy in Tyngsborough. The girl’s beat PMA of Methuen 22-39 and lost to the defending league champion NDA 20-39. Wendy Becerra was the first Chelsea runner and was fifth overall running a time of 26:16. Finishing behind Becerra in sixth place was Clarissa Sosa running 26:42. In eighth place overall and the third Chelsea runner was Melanie Nguyen running 27:42. Freshman Jocelyn Poste was next for the lady devils in thirteenth place running 30:13. Newcomer Jennifer Navarro was the fifth runner for Chelsea running 32:15.
Notre Dame’s course is very rugged and it was very hot and humid. Our top three runners ran well and were competitive with Notre Dame. We have some young runners behind them that are working real hard to close that gap. This Wednesday (9/23) the lady red devils will host Whittier and Lynn Tech at Admirals Hill.
The Chelsea boy’s beat PMA of Methuen by the score of 22-33. Jose Aguiar finished first against PMA running 22:06 on the 3.1 mile course. Jonathan Gomez was third overall against PMA running 22:27. The third runner for Chelsea was Jose Cintron running 23:52. Diego Estrada was next for the red devils running 24:08 and finishing in fifth place. Adriel Cedano was the fifth runner for Chelsea running 26:43 and finished 11th overall. We were a little shorthanded today and we are hoping by next Wednesday to be back to full strength. We will be facing a strong Whittier team and a vastly improved Lynn Tech team. It will be on our home course so hopefully that will give us a small advantage. We have been working hard and we are getting some good results from senior newcomer Jose Aguiar who is very competitive and tough in practice. We are hoping that his teammates see his work ethic and push each other harder in practice and challenge each other in the races.
