Athletes of the Year
Division 3: Triton, Senior
The Globe's Indoor Athlete of the Year had no problems outdoors either, again winning Athlete of the Year honors. At the All-State meet, Latham won the 100 hurdles (14.60) and the long jump (19-3). The Wisconsin-bound senior leaves as one of the most decorated athletes in state track history.
Adler was untouchable in distance events this season, winning the mile at the Division 2 and All-State meets (4:56), earning a chance to compete for the national event title. Her 2:12 time in the 800 meters set a school record.
Newton North, Sophomore
Brown excelled on the biggest stage despite her youth, taking the All-State pole vault title with an 11-foot jump. She also won the Division 1 meet and the freshman-sophomore meet, and her 4 x 100 squad placed third at the Division 1 meet.
Chapman led Beverly in the 2-mile this season, taking the Division 2 and All-State (10.52) titles while setting a school record in the event. The Yale-bound senior also helped the 4 x 800 squad set a school record (9:26) at All-States.
Chauvin earned Seekonk a wealth of points in field events this season, winning the discus at the Division 4 meet and All-States. The senior also excelled in the javelin, finishing second and third, respectively, at the Division 4 and All-State meets.
Cronin followed up her rare loss in the high jump at All-States with a winning jump of 5-9 at outdoor nationals in North Carolina. She took the Division 1 title by the same height this spring. This is Cronin's third All-Scholastic appearance.
Denny broke her own record in the 100 meters at the New England meet with a finish of 12.31 seconds. She also won the 200-meter dash and participated with two winning relay teams (4 x 100 and 4 x 400). The honors student will attend Sacred Heart University.
Eason went 3 for 3 in postseason competition, winning the shot put at her league meet, the Division 3 meet, and All-States, giving her a second state title. Her 42-7.5 throw was second at the New England championships.
Esposito was at the head of the pack in the 400 hurdles, winning the Hockomock League and Division 2 (1:03.60) titles and placing second at All-States (1:01.65). She established school, league, and division records in the event this season.
The senior broke the ISL record in the long jump with a leap of 18-1, and that was still short of her personal best (18-3.75) in the event. Also a talented triple jumper with a personal best of 35-8, Fitzpatrick will attend UMass.
Newton North, Freshman
The freshman phenom followed her triple jump title indoors at nationals with a strong outdoor season, winning the Division 1 long jump crown (18-4). She won the triple jump at the D1 meet (40-3) and All-States (41-1.5).
Hall earned the regional long jump title with her 18-5.75-foot jump at New Englands, where she also took fifth in the triple jump. At All-States she was runner-up in the long jump. She will attend Dartmouth College in the fall.
Keklak swept the 800-meter run in the postseason, taking the All-States (2:12.89) and the Division 1 (2:14.89) titles. She also anchored Lincoln-Sudbury's winning 4 x 800 squad at both competitions.
McDonagh put together a stellar senior season, going undefeated in the high jump in the Hockomock League and winning the event at the Division 2 and All-State tournaments. The Hockomock MVP established a school record with a jump of 5-8.
O'Dea ran a personal-best 12.17 in the 100 meters to win the Division 3 title for the third time, and was second in the event at All-States. She also ran on the 4 x 100 squad, which set a Division 3 record in winning in 49.71.
O'Flynn was a force to be reckoned with at All-States, winning the 400 meters (56.16) and placing second in the discus (120-8). The three-time Ipswich MVP also established a Division 2 meet record in the 400, winning in 56.84.
Ouellette was named Brookline's female athlete of the year for her javelin prowess, as she took the Bay State, Division 1 (137-2.00), and All-States (141-3) titles this season. She was the Bay State and Division 1 champ in the event three straight seasons.
The young sprinter won the Division 2 and All-States (24.77) at 200 meters and was second at New Englands. She holds school records in the 55, 100, 200, and 300-meter runs as well as the long jump.
4 x 100
The Andover 4 x 100 crew of Terra Organisciak, Vanessa Singleton, Eve Bishop and Kayla Baldwin won the title at the Merrimack Valley Conference, Division 1, and All-State meets. They fell just short of the New England title, finishing second in 49.04. Bishop and Singleton are seniors.
4 x 400
The speedy Tewksbury quartet of Jess Bridle, Ashley Toland, Karie Judge, and Leanne Tucker took the 4 x 400 at the Merrimack Valley Conference meet settling for third at the Division 2 meet. A week later, though, they were back on top at All-States, winning in 3:56.02. Toland, Bridle, and Tucker all return next season.
4 x 800
The Lincoln-Sudbury distance relay squad of Claire Arthur, Emily Rudder, Andrea Keklak, and Marika Crowe set a blistering pace, winning the Division 1 title in 9:23.95.
