Big day for Kiley, Caraballo and Pentucket

WRENTHAM — There were plenty of noteworthy performances for the area girls at the state country meets Saturday at the 3.1-mile Wrentham Developmental Center course. That terrific rivalry between Andover junior Molly Kiley and Methuen senior Miana Caraballo was kicked up a notch. The two local stars were near the front of the pack at Division 1 States with Kiley third in 18:29.6 and the UMass Lowell-bound Caraballo fourth in 18:30.6. The race went down to the wire with Sharon's Daphne Theiler winning in 18:26.5. The powerhouse North Andover girls placed fifth in the 23-team D2 field. That was the good news. The better news was they may have been the youngest team to qualify in any of the three divisions. Scarlet Knight scorers were: freshman Luna Prochazkova (14th out of 188 runners in 18:43.4), fellow frosh Nicole Kroon in 27th (19:10.4), senior Leyla Kvaternik 47th, sophomore Leigha Leavitt in 96th and sophomore Gabby Harty in 102nd.   Kvaternik had been on the sidelines for a couple weeks so her return paid big dividends. Haverhill standout Finleigh Simonds placed 32nd in Division 1. At Division 2 States, Pentucket had the top boy or girl local team performance of the day with a third-place finish. It scored 126 points, losing out on the silver to Whitinsville Christian on a tie-breaker. Senior Phoebe Rubio (12th, 19:08.5) and sophomore Kaylie Dalgar (17th, 19:20.2) came up big. Other scorers for the West Newbury regional school were junior Audrey Conover in 33rd, junior Libby Murphy in 46th and senior Ella Edic in 47th.

Whittier Tech had reason to be proud with sophomore Noel Tripp placed 67th in the 188-runner Division 2 States field.
