The Everett High girls and boys cross country teams won their first meets of the season with victories over Lynn Classical last week.
The girls triumphed by a score of 15-50 over Classical. Delmis Urquiza took first in a time of 25:20. Amber Whitney was the next Lady Crimson Tide runner across the line in third spot in 27:08, followed by Angele Louis-Jean in fourth in 27:23, Melissa Michel in fifth in 28:34, and Jessica Mangan in seventh in 35:41.
“Delmis ran a great race for us,” said EHS head coach Shelanda Irish. “It was the first meet that she was able to run really hard. Amber also ran very well and is improving all the time.”
On the boys side, the Crimson Tide had a tougher task and earned a 25-32 triumph.
Ricardo Perez was the top finisher for Everett with a second place effort in 20:27. Nicholas Olivieri took fourth in 22:15, followed by Bryan Whitney in fifth in 22:16, Trevor Freeman in sixth in 24:42, and Tuan Vo in eighth in 26:44 to complete the Revere score sheet. Francisco Guzman also ran a strong race, finishing in ninth in 26:54.
“Ricky ran a strong race and was neck and neck all the way with the top Classical runner,” said Irish. “Nick edged Bryan in a race to the finish and it was nice to se their competitiveness.”
The cross country teams host Cambridge today (Wednesday) in their last dual meet of the season. They will compete in the GBL championships next Saturday at Fresh Pond in Cambridge.
