Old Town Hill facts
Old Town Hill Volunteer Property Steward David Powell checked in with The Daily News following Triton’s first meet at the school’s new home course Wednesday. Some facts about the course: The highest elevation at Old Town Hill is 168 feet above sea level, and the starting line is approximately 50 feet above sea level. So, the 2.88-mile course has a climb of about 120 feet. Runners can see three states from the top of the hill — Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. The Trustees of Reservations owns the property, which is comprised of 535 acres of fields, woodlands and marshlands.

Update on Shearer
Newburyport cross-country runner Nick Carleo recently broke the high school course record at Maudslay State Park with a time of 14:59. The previous record was set by Hamilton-Wenham’s Darin Shearer in 1990. A friend of Shearer’s recently checked in with The Daily News to inform the readers that Shearer now lives in Colorado Springs, Colo. He served in the U.S. Armed Forces, serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Also worth noting: Shearer’s post-collegiate coach, Bob Sevene, also coached Nick’s father, Tom Carleo, in the late 1980s, as well as Joan Benoit Samuelson when she won the Olympic marathon gold medal in 1984.
