Pentucket Sachems Girls Indoor Track '19-'20

Duren, Lavery earn thirds at New Englands

The timing of New Englands is less than perfect for New Hampshire track athletes.

Saturday’s 33rd annual meet at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston was 20 days after the N.H. state meets. Thus many of the Granite State elite don’t even bother competing.

Central's Duren breaks own area record to win All-States

ROXBURY — Katharine Duren shaved a hundredth of a second off the all-time area record she set last week and easily won the 55-meter hurdles at the Mass. All-State Track Meet at the Reggie Lewis Center.
The Central Catholic junior, who won the 100 hurdles title at All-States last spring, was clocked in 8.19 Saturday with runner-up Ella Grey of Plymouth South coming across in 8.31. Andover sophomore Jodi Parrott was seventh in 8.73.
The win helped ease the disappointment of last winter when Duren, the top finisher in the prelims, stumbled over a hurdle in the finals and placed eighth.
The North Andover girls placed ninth with 16 points led by Penn-bound high jumper Sarah Lavery (5-6, 4th) and a 5-7 finish in the 600 by Kelcey Dion (1:36.80) and Courtney Dalke (1:37.55). The Knights also got a fourth in the 4x400 with the team of Ainsley Dion, Kelcey Dion, Katie Sullivan and Dalke posting a school indoor record time of 4:03.45.
The local relayers were in fine form. Fresh off setting the Division 4 state record last week, Pentucket's all-underclassman (two freshman, a sophomore, a junior) 4x200 team of Sabrina Campbell, Emily Rubio, Sage Smith and Syeira Campbell went nearly a full second faster with a 1:45.26 for third yesterday. 
Another Sachem highlight was Emily Rubio's fifth in the long jump (17-8).
The other area individual placers were Central's Kaleigh Lane with an eighth in the 600 and Andover frosh Molly Kiley eighth in the 2- mile in 11:19.15. Haverhill frosh Finleigh Simonds finished 10th but she set a 3-second personal best with a 5:14.05 in the mile.

It's been a memorable winter for the Lawrence boys and the Lancers made it even more memorable, finishing tied for sixth with 19 points.
Senior Jerimil German was fourth in the 55 meters in 6.56 and super soph Jordany Volquez took third in the 55 hurdles in 7.51. The big scorer was junior Eddie Gonzalez soaring 22-2.25 for second in the long jump. Volquez and Gonzalez both set new personal bests.
The North Andover boys know how to relay, too.
Led by ace anchor senior Jack Chace, the Knights took third in the 4x200 and second in the 4x400. "Chace the Ace," who will be playing lacrosse for Denison University, ran a brilliant 48.9 anchor in the 4x400. Matt Chicko and Peter Martel were also on both relays. Sebastian Vente was on the 4x200 and Paul Fernandez on the 4x400, which set a new NAHS school indoor mark of 3:23.89.
The Methuen quartet of Stanley Hanci, Michael Soucy, John Dowgiert and Nassim Bendimerad grabbed a fifth in the 4x200.
The other area placer was Andover high jumper Michael Makiej (7th tie, 6-4).
It was another big afternoon for the MVC. Lowell won the boys meet, Tewksbury's Makayla Paige 
The top 6 placers in each event in each state qualify for New Englands, which is Friday night back at the Reggie Lewis Center.
