Newburyport boys place 3rd at All-States

(Continued)

The Clippers were led by the running of sophomore sensation Nick Carleo, who placed seventh with a final time of 16:28:22. The winner of the race was Lenox Memorial senior Scott Carpenter, who finished in a time of 15:55:75.

Rounding out the other six Newburyport dashers were Santo (17th; 16:56.99), freshman Joseph Molvar (56th; 17:40:06), junior Chris Orlando (62nd; 17:44:25), junior Max Vye (111th; 18:27:14), senior Sawyer Updike (122nd; 18:34:88), and sophomore Gabriel Ficht (124th; 18:35:75).

It should be noted that Georgetown junior Tom Mulligan placed 80th with a time of 18:02:65.

Although they weren’t able to make a top-three finish, the Newburyport girls team continued their stellar season by finishing 13th in the Division 2 race with a sum of 304 points, a total time of 1:48:29.76, and an average time of 21:41.96. Bishop Feehan placed first (1:38:56), Tyngsborough placed second (1:39:33) and Weston came in third (1:32:32).

As the Clipper girls had done all year, they continued to exceed expectations and old times.

“Just to make it to All-States is a major accomplishment,” said Hennigar, who noted that only 19 teams qualify for Division 2. “We had raced on that course earlier in the year, and this time around, nearly every single one of the girls ran considerably faster than the first time they raced there. They ran very well, and they should be very proud of how well their season unfolded.”

Pacing the Clippers were sophomore Kristin Mackie (74th; 21:09:19), junior Kelly Conway (81st; 21:20:80), junior Erin Carroll (89th; 21:29:12), sophomore Rachel Haley (117th; 22:05:27), senior captain Liz Fiascone (131st; 22:25:38), junior Rose Hart (150th; 23:12:13) and sophomore Lillian Eagan (158th; 23:40:19).

Other local runners included Triton junior Liz Willmonton (111th; 22:00:00) and Pentucket senior Marissa Porter, who placed 54th with a time of 20:41:38.

Along with several other Cape Ann League schools, both Newburyport teams will be heading to Wappingers Falls, N.Y., this weekend for the Nike Team Nationals Regional Meet — a gathering place for running teams all around New England and the Middle Atlantic that will serve as a qualifier for a select elite teams that will move on to the Nationals in Oregon.
