Carleo, Darsney place first at All States

BRIDGEWATER — Newburyport’s Nick Carleo and Triton’s Kerstin Darsney’s sizable trophy collections will be getting a big addition after the two captured All State championships at this weekend’s All State Championship Meet at Bridgewater State University.

Carleo successfully defended his All State championship in the mile by running 4:15.42, edging out Andrew Ernst of Marblehead (4:17.85) and Randy Nong of Lowell (4:19.71).

Carleo also placed first in the mile at All States this past winter, and then went on to earn All-American status in the event by placing sixth at the New Balance Indoor Nationals.

Darsney, meanwhile, captured her first All State championship in the triple jump, recording a distance of 38-8 to beat out Brianna Duncan of Cambridge Rindge and Latin (36-4 3/4) and Ariel Wilbekin of Algonquin Regional (36-3 3/4). Darsney also placed sixth in the high jump (5-2) and 13th in the 100-meter hurdles (15.91).

Though she didn’t take home a top prize, Amesbury’s Marissa Randall also had a day to remember, placing in the top 10 of both the discus and shot put.

Randall placed fifth in the state in the discus by throwing 117-1 and then placed eighth in the shot put by throwing 37-9. In both cases, she was about 6 feet behind eventual champion Michaela Smith of Newton North, who placed first in both events.

In the girls pole vault, Pentucket’s Ali Attenasio placed fourth in the state by clearing 10-9, which was about a foot behind Algonquin Regional’s Carly Railing, who placed first. Paige Wesolowski, Attenasio’s teammate at Pentucket, also performed well in the event, placing 13th with a height of 9-3.

The boys pole vault saw the most local athletes compete, with Alec Reduker performing the best of the bunch by clearing 12-3 to place 13th in the event. Triton’s Austin Stevens cleared 11-9 to place 17th, falling well short of his record-breaking performance at last week’s divisional state meet. Amesbury’s Heath King, Doug Masi and Triton’s Brandon Duford also competed in the event.
