Sophomore Luqman Shariff scored his first win of the season in the long jump (17’7″). In the throws senior Luka Braga was a double winner in the shot put (37’11”) and the discus (98’10”). Finishing second in both the shot and the disc was sophomore teammate Nelson Hernandez (35’4″ in shot & 95’8″) in the disc. Scoring two second place performances was junior Nick Ieng in the 200 (24.07) & Javelin (109′).

Rounding out the scorning was sophomore Jose Leclerc finishing second in the mile (5:17).
On Friday the boys traveled to a much improved Lynn Tech team and lost 94 -54. Top point getters for Chelsea were Luka Braga winning the shot put (39’2″), Nelson Hernandez winning the discus (104’1″). The only other individual winner was Jose Leclerc in the mile (5:19), Jose also finished third in the 800 (2:16). Bryan Rivas was second in the 400 hurdles (64.3) and in the 400 (57.0). Senior Captain Johnny Gomez was second in the two mile (12:25). Alex Pedrero was second in the 110 high hurdles (19.1). Jose Aguiar finished second in the 800 (2:15). Lynn Tech has come a long way in the past couple of years. Their squad is well coached and has the reigning New England champion in the high jump.
This leaves the boys record at 5 – 3 as we head into our last week of league competition. Today we travel to undefeated Gr. Lowell and Saturday we are off to the CAC championship meet at Essex Tech.

Most of our girls are peaking at the right time. If we can stay healthy this last week we should be able to put ourselves in a position to win the CAC dual meet title (yesterday v. Gr. Lowell) and fight for the CAC league meet title Saturday at Essex Tech. The girls record now stands at an undefeated 9-0.
This past Saturday was the State Coaches Invitational at Acton – Boxboro regional high school. This meet is open to schools from all divisions throughout the state and is a preview of the state meets to come. For the girls Owliyo Mohamud finished 20th out of 60 girls who qualified in the 400 in a time of 62.84. Katherine Cabral finished 26th out of 60 athletes in the 100 (13.51), 27th out of 45 in the 200 (27.03), and 21st in the long jump (15’4″). Martin Simon continues to shine on the state level. Martin finished 10th in the triple jump (33’3″) and took 6th in the long jump (16’2″).
Big meets to come (including the alumni meet)
