FALMOUTH — Seekonk High’s Andrew Cabral and King Philip Regional High senior Mike Griffin proved to be among the fleetest of the fields assembled for the MSTCA Bob McIntyre Twilight Meet at the Barnstable County Fairgrounds.
Cabral clocked a time of 15:41 to finish third overall, while coach Frank Mooney’s Seekonk High Warriors captured the Division 2 Small School Division Team championship.
Griffin clocked a personal-best time on the five-kilometer course to capture the No. 5 spot overall in the Boys’ Large School Division race at the MSTCA meet.
Meanwhile, Foxboro High’s Abby Hassman and Seekonk High’s Abigail Tenreiro both broke into the top-10 individual finishers at the Division 2 Small School Division meet.
“She was flying,” Foxboro High coach Joe Cusack said of Hassmann, the senior who finished No. 3 overall — one second out of second place — who will be a favorite for Saturday’s Hockomock League Championship Meet after covering the five-kilometer course in 17:59. Tenreiro, meanwhile, led the Seekonk girls’ team to an 11th-place finish among the teams in the field, taking the No. 10 spot (18:43).
Seekonk had four runners finish among the top 62 in the Division 2 Boys’ field, with Zach Laverdiere (16:30) and Henry Jordan finishing within eight seconds of each other for the No. 24 and 29 spots as the Warriors totaled 178 points to outdistance Wilmington (189) and Martha’s Vineyard (193) for the team title.
“Andrew ran a great race; one, because he had been sick all week, and two, because with some 350 runners in the race, it was narrow at the starting line and everyone had to fight for space,” Mooney said.
Foxboro High’s Ryan Proulx was the top Hockomock League finisher in the Division 2 Small School Division race, taking the No. 11 spot (16:07).
Taking top honors in representing the Hockomock League, KP’s Griffin finished in fifth place overall amidst the field of over 300 runners in the Large School Division at 15:45.2. He was six seconds ahead of teammate and No. 8 finisher Mike Norberg, who also logged a personal-best time (15.51.5). All told, 21 of the 24 competing members of the King Philip High teams ran personal-best times, with Maya Evans taking the No. 23 spot (19:05.8).
For Attleboro High in the Large School Division, Kim Esteban (19:44.9) and Kelley Neuendorf finished with 13 seconds of each other in the girls’ varsity race to take the No. 44 and 54 spots, respectively. For the Bombardier boys, Nathan Seybert was the lone top 100 finisher, taking the No. 30 spot (16:22.8).
For Mansfield High in the Large School Division, the Mullahy brothers finished within 28 seconds of each other, with Owen taking the No. 18 spot (16:08) and Mike finishing at No. 41 (16:36).

For North Attleboro High in the Large School Division, junior Melissa Sapini 20:40.7 was the lone Rocketeer, male or female, to break into the top 100 in the varsity races, taking the No. 95 spot.

Junior Sophia Arruda ran spectacularly, taking second place (at 19:44), six seconds off of the winning pace for the Bishop Feehan High girls’ team, which totaled 113 points. Notably, the next six Bishop Feehan runners finished with 62 seconds of each other, with Isabella Simoneau cracking the top 20 at No. 19 (20:45).
Also in the McIntyre Twilight Meet’s Small School division, Paul Wisnaskas (17:22) and Kevin Mahoney (17:33) both broke into the top 100 for the Norton High Lancers. Skye Goba and Sarah LaFrancois finished within 1:04 of each other to also finish among the top 100.
