7. Newton North builds on success
The old Newton North will soon be a memory, replaced by a shiny, new, and yes, expensive building, but a little construction didnt get in the way of the girls track team. Displaced to Waltham to practice, the girls still won the state outdoor title, holding off crosstown rival Newton South. There were plenty of stars, led by freshman Carla Forbes (right) who won the triple jump and Steph Brown who took the pole vault. After winning the indoor title, the outdoor title was a fitting end to an impressive year for the Tigers. Indoor and outdoor, that really caps off a year, said coach Joe Tranchita.
