North boys second, South girls third in Division I track
Defending champ Nashua North finished second overall to Pinkerton Academy with a fine performance on the day.
David Vorbach delivered the monster double, taking the 1500 in 4:12.41 and coming back to dominate the 3000 in 8:44.46.
It was yet another epic day for the reigning Telegraph Boys Cross Country Runner of the Year.
In both cases, his North senior classmate was right behind in second.
North’s Triston Delicema added second-place points in the long jump, while Merrimack’s Brian Genet was third.
Division I girls
The Nashua South girls took third place overall in the Division I meet Sunday, and they did it with just one individual champ, high-jumper Sydney Lewis. Lewis who cleared 5-4, also added a third place in the hurdles.
Lewis wasn’t the only Nashua based leaper to win. North’s Abby Coy took the long jump with a mark of 16-3.25, just two inches farther than Lewis, who was simply huge.
Merrimack’s Johanna Koroma lived up to her all-state placing with a win in the 55 meters with a sizzling 7.52 clocking.
Alvirne got a 600-meter victory from Dominique Milinazzo, who broke the tape in 1:40.26, just ahead of BG’s Caroline Fischer.
The Cardinals picked up a hurdles win from Cameryn Nichols in 8.71 seconds.
Division II boys
On the boys side, Campbell’s Trevor Gomes dominated the long jump with a leap of 20-11.25
Milford got a second in the shot put from Michael Boucher and a second in the 4Ã–400. Blake Audibert was fifth in the 1500.
Other notable placers:
Campbell’s Luke Hogan was third in the 600.
Williams proves point
Viankah Williams’ hamstrings are just fine, thank you.
The Milford High School junior electrified the Leverone Fieldhouse here at Dartmouth Sunday with her rousing anchor run in the 4Ã–200.
But it was earlier in the day, when Williams soared to victory with a long jump at 16-7 that she sent the message to the rest of the Division II.
“This is my third meet back, and I’m very happy,” said Williams.
“As long as I got the win, I really wanted to win for the team. We needed that 10 points.”
The Spartans actually got 18 as freshman teammate Renee Wilson was right behind in second at 16-4.
“Renee is awesome,” said the Milford tri-captain. “I’m so glad she got second. She’s only a freshman, I’m just so proud of her.”
Spartan tri-captain Lauren Robinson covered more ground than anyone in the place to pick up 16 huge points for Milford.
Robinson was third in the 1500 and the 3000 and then also took fifth in the 1000.
Souhegan took 2-3 in the 1000 with Jane Leighton and Marissa Romano.
