NORTON — After a month’s absence from competition, the North Attleboro High boys’ and girls’ winter track teams came away from Wheaton College’s Haas Athletic Center Monday with a sweep of Foxboro.
“I give all of the credit in the world to these kids,” North Attleboro boys’ coach Scott Holster said of the staggered nature of practice sessions and COVID-19 testing and protocols. “It’s been a lot of hard work. Kids have been running outdoors, indoors at Wheaton and in the hallways, working out in the weight room. They’ve been doing anything that they possibly can, at a safe distance and mindful of everyone.”
Pairs of wins from junior Nathan Shultz (300, high jump) and sophomore Connor Peterson (mile, two-mile) led the Rocketeer boys (2-1 Hockomock League) to a 77-22 victory over the Warriors, while Brody Clemente led a sweep of the shot put.
Shultz notched a personal-best 6-2 in winning the high jump, and ran a leg for the first-place 4x200 relay team. Peterson won the mile by 12 seconds at 4:58 and clocked an 11:45 in the two-mile.
Clemente (49-2 1/2) edged teammate Mark Etinenvre (a personal-best 48 feet) to win the shot put, while Josh Beckett logged 47 feet for third place. Dan O’Malley won the long jump and took second in the 55 dash for Foxboro.
Marissa Galey (55 dash, long jump) won two events for the North girls (1-2) in their 63-37 victory. Sienna Newth led a Rocketeers’ sweep of the shot-put event. Ella Campbell captured first in the 55 hurdles (1052) and 300 (46.6) for Foxboro while Caroline Bass (600) and Aine Fitzpatrick (mile) also won events.
