Although the Everett High boys indoor track team came out on the short end of their recent meets against Revere and Malden, a number of the Crimson Tide turned in winning performances in the two meets.
Pete Duperier captured first place in the 300 yard dash in both meets. Pete’s winning time against Revere was 37.5 seconds. He then achieved a personal record (PR) of 36.6 against Malden.
David Lima was another double winner for Coach Shelanda Irish’s squad, as he sped to victories in the 600 in 1:26.3 in the Revere meet and 1:26.9 against his Malden opponents.
Shotputter Ken Bailey also produced winning efforts in both meets. Ken’s toss of 41 feet,
three inches, proved victorious against Revere and his throw of 43-3.25 bested the field against Malden. The latter throw is just inches off the distance of 44 feet needed to qualify for the State Meet.
Jean Bourdeau also came though with a first place effort, winning the high jump in the
Revere meet. Other Crimson Tide performers who put points onto the Everett scoresheet against former GBL rival Revere were Nick D’Angelo with a second in the 50 yard dash in 6.1; Brian Panarese with a third in the dash in 6.2; Bourdeau with a third in the 300 in 32.4; John Lones with a third in the 1000 in 2:49.1; Ricky Perez with a third in the two mile in 12:22.1; Matt Huse with a third in the high jump; and Cody Dingman with a second in the shotput with a heave of 40-4.
In the Malden meet, Dingman took second in the shotput with a throw of 40-2.75; Perez grabbed second in the two mile in a PR time of 12:12.3; Ryan Canillas was third in the mile in 5:41.8; Lones was third in the 1000 in 2:49.1; and Bourdeau took third in the 300 in 37.8.
The boys will take on Cambridge tomorrow (Thursday) and then compete in the State Relays Sunday at the Reggie Lewis Track Center. Shelanda said she will enter teams in the 4 x 200, the 4 x 400, the 4 x 800, the shotput, and the 4 x 50 shuttle relay.
