Area Roundup: Gloucester boys track nipped by Swampscott

Track

Swampscott 44,

Gloucester 41 (boys)

A team needs at minimum 44 points to win a track meet in NEC play and Swampscott came through with a win by the slimmest of margins as Gloucester falls to 1-3 on the year.

“We knew it was going to be a battle today,” Gloucester head coach Jeff Destino said. “You never like to lose but I couldn’t be happier with the way we competed.”

The Fishermen came into the meet undermanned with multiple key contributors nursing injuries or ill. With a team the size of Gloucester’s every missing player makes a big impact.

Gloucester had several strong individual performances led by Matt Carpenter in the 600 and Noah Mondello in the mile. Both finished in first place and both qualified for the state meet with times of 1:27.4 and 10:09.5 respectively.

Everest Crawford (1,000m), Jared Marshall (hurdles), and Matt Ciaramitaro (high jump) all took home first place finishes. Destino also praised the work of senior captain Jacob Holscher in the mile, whose time of 4:37.6 was good enough to qualify for the state meet, and freshman Jeremy Meunsaveng, who finished second in the 300.

Gloucester falls to 2-2 at the hands of a strong Swampscott team.

Liz McCormack led the way for an undermanned Gloucester team, that was fighting injury and illness, with a first place finish in the shot put. Gloucester also got personal bests from Hannah Pastagal in the shot put, Chloe Kenyon in the hurdles, Corinne DeLouise in the 600 and Caity O’Leary in the 300. Head coach Liz Moran also praised the work of Kelly Foster and Melanie MacDonald in the two-mile.
