Strong Finish for EHS Track Teams
The Everett High girls and boys indoor track teams put the finishing touch on a successful indoor season with some outstanding performances at the first annual Rising Meet that was held at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center last Tuesday.
“The Rising Meet was a great meet and we had great performances from everyone,” said EHS head coach Jehu Cimea.
Richard Malloy finished in first place in the high jump with a leap of 5’-4” and Joseph Murillo finished first in the shot-put with a toss of 40’-0.75”.
Also attaining the medal podium were Omar Marshall with a fifth place finish in the 300 meter dash, Brandon Ho with a fourth place effort in the long jump, and
Lakisha Kirnon with a seventh place finish in the hurdles.
In the girls 4 x 200 relay, the EHS quartet of Yelsa Garcia, Gigi Boyce, Nyla Crowder, and Datchene Elyse finished in fourth place.
In the boys 4 x 200, the foursome of Angel Torres, Brandon Ho, Omar Marshall, and Richard Malloy brought home third place ribbons.
Malloy also represented the Crimson Tide at Saturday’s Division 1 State Meet. Richard competed in the 55 meter dash and finished in 16th place with a sprint of 6.83 seconds.
Both the boys and girls will have a short break before the beginning of the 2022 spring outdoor season.
EHS Boys Basketball Finishes at 19-3
The Everett High boys basketball team concluded its 2022 regular season, dropping a 78-64 decision to top-ranked and undefeated B.C. High Monday evening in the finals of the Comcast Classic tournament held at Woburn High.
The Eaglets led all the way, including a 38-25 advantage at the half, but the gritty Crimson Tide, behind Roger Vasquez (22 points) and John Monexant (15 points), cut the BC advantage in half to 43-35 midway through the third period.
However, the Eaglets showed why they are the top-ranked team in the state and fended off the Everett challenge.
Despite the loss, the Crimson Tide concluded an outstanding regular season with an overall record of 19-3 in which coach Stanley Chamblain’s crew blitzed their Greater Boston League opponents to win the GBL title with a perfect 14-0 record. The Tide now will await the announcement of their seeding and first-round opponent in the upcoming Division 1 state tourney
