New England Track Record-setting days for Kitchings, Fragione, Ranger relay

BOSTON — Local track and field athletes came up big at the New England Championships Saturday afternoon at the Reggie Lewis Track.
Haverhill senior Jayla Kitchings broke her own school record with an 8.36 in the 55-meter hurdles. The All-State champion trailed only Connecticut's brilliant sophomore Tess Stapleton (8.19/19-1.5) who won the hurdles and the long jump.
The Methuen 4x400 team of seniors Eric Salvo, Max Fotino and Roan Marcano and junior Stanley Hanci continued its record-setting ways. They crossed the line in 3:23.51, slicing 0.45 seconds off the school indoor record it set just last week in grabbing the silver at All-States. Brockton High again took top honors.
Ranger senior Sara Fragione smashed her own 1,000-meter record for the third time this season with a 2:58.07 for sixth. She went from last to sixth in the last lap. The previous standard was the Dartmouth recruit's 3:00.01 last week. 
Coach Brittany Caprio said, " Sara's confidence carried her through her race to make a huge move in her final straightaway."
The North Andover boys and girls were again ready for the challenge.
Junior Sarah Lavery tied for third in the high jump (5-5), senior Trevor Nassar grabbed sixth in the 300 (35.38) and the girls 4x800 team of Courtney Dalke, Kelcey Dion, Ainsley Dion and Aisling Callahan took seventh in 9:39.60. Nassar eclipsed his own school record of 35.55.
Pinkerton's last competition was Division 1 States way back on Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 3) but like the Patriots, the Astros just do their job.
Especially Adam Spencer.
The senior was fourth in the hurdles (7.66) and teamed with Patrick Cotnoir, Ryan Dane and Conor Seleny to placed fifth in the 4x200 in 1:32.11. The relay was seeded just 19th but smashed the school record.
Delia Barbanti led the Andover girls with a seventh in the 300 (40.79) and a fourth in the 4x200 in 1:44.70. In the relay she teamed with Julia Sergeant, Grace Dunn, Julianna Kennedy.
Other area placers were Pentucket's Madi Krohto, who tied for eighth in the high jump (5-3) and Davidson recruit Jack Curtin of Andover and St. John's Prep, who was third in the long jump (22-7.25).
Two of the dominant athletes on the day in the girls' meet were Connecticut junior sprinters Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, who are both transgender athletes.
