Girls Track Defeats SPS and Reading

This past Saturday, the Girls Track team hosted St. Paul’s and Reading High and went on to defeat them both soundly (92-28), (92-65). It was a cold, damp day, but the girls persevered and worked through the bad conditions and had excellent results. Atima Lui ’08, Colleen Thurman ’07, and Cecily Pulver ’07 swept the triple jump, taking first, second, and third place. Lui also won the high jump, and Aba Temeng ’06 won both the discus and the shot put. Jennifer Meacham ’06 took first in the javelin, and Jara Crear ’08 won the long jump. Track newcomer Ale Moss ’07 tied for first place in the pole vault, and the coaches are excited to see her improve throughout the season. The Andover 4x100m team worked together and came in first place, and Simone Hill ’08 won the 200m sprint. The girls distance squad came out ready to run again this week. Anne Elder ’09 placed first in the 800m, and Abby King ’07, Brianna Jordan ’09, Elder ’09, and Sarah Cohen ’08 dominated the 1500m. King also won the 3000m, followed by Becca Howe ’06. Overall, it was a dominant performance by the Big Blue. The girls face NMH and Milton tomorrow in another tri-meet.
