Laura Frackiewicz was one of Triton’s top mid-distance runners, competing in the 600-meter run and both the 4x400 and 4x800 relays. She placed fifth in the league at the CAL Indoor Track Championships in the 600, running a time of 1:47.07, and improved on that time to place 10th in the state at the Division 4 State Championships with a time of 1:43.80. She was the anchor on a 4x400 relay team that placed 17th in the state and the lead runner on the 4x800 relay team that placed 8th in the state. Frackiewicz is still undecided on where she will go to college, though she said her two top choices are Boston College and Providence College.
A foreign exchange student from Germany, Nicola Hepp made a big impact on Triton during her brief stay with the school. Hepp competed in the 55-meter dash and the shot put, placing sixth in the league in both at the CAL Indoor Championships with a time of 7.95 (sixth place) and a distance of 29-2. She also competed in both events at the Division 4 State Championships and led off the team’s 4x200 relay.
Emma Marchant had a sensational senior season for Pentucket this year, going undefeated in the 2 mile during the regular season while placing second in the league at the CAL Indoor Championships, where she broke the 12-minute mark with a time of 11:53.43. She went on to place fourth in the state at the Division 4 State Championships with a time of 11:57.21. Marchant will attend Boston University in the fall, and she said the person she looks up to most is her mom.
Siobhan Mitchell burst onto the local track scene as a freshman this winter, clearing 4-8 in the high jump to place fifth in the league at the CAL Indoor Track Championships.
