HIGHLIGHTS

  • G-300/600/4x400: Scorching triple for Hillhouse CT sr Precious Holmes, with US#3 38.22 (#12 all-time), US#2 1:30.79 (#11 all-time), and anchoring winning 4x400 effort (3:56.84).
  • G-4x800/Mile: The LaSalle RI girls roar into the US#3 spot with a 9:07.28, as six run 9:31 or better. Then anchor Molly Keating comes back with a 4:54.57 victory.
  • B-4x800/2-Mile: Already US#5 at 7:50.25, Chariho RI and star Mike Marsella flex their muscles with a 7:51.22 triumph, winning by five seconds over Acton-Boxborough MA’s 7:56.78. Then Marsella bounces back to a 9:16.76 victory.
  • G-1k: Classical RI soph Madeleine Berkson didn’t quite make the fast heat; though she’d run 2:12 for 800, she didn’t have a sub-3:00 1k to her credit.

The fast heat sees NW Catholic CT jr Sarah Gillespie lead 3 at 2:55 or better with US#8 2:51.31, but has to settle for 2nd overall.

  • B-1k: Staples CT jr Henry Wynne prevails in US#8 2:28.30, as 9 run 2:32 or faster.
  • B-HJ: Somerset MA soph Adam Couitt impresses with 6-9 victory.
  • B-SP: Newton North MA sr Swardick Mayanja upholds the favorite’s role with 59-3.5 triumph.
  • B-4x200: Chelmsford MA gets their 2nd sub-1:30 with a winning 1:29.83.
  • G-4x200: US#5 Hope RI wins easily with a 1:41.88, just over a second off their best.
  • G-55: South Burlington VT sr Mollie Gribbin starts double attempt with 7.11 victory, but is 2nd by just over an inch in the LJ.
