Eveillard, Michel Are Top Performers for EHS Boys Track in GBL Tri-Meet
Although the Everett High boys indoor track and field team came up short to Greater Boston League (GBL) rivals Malden (58-42) and Somerville (70-30) in a tri-meet held last Tuesday at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Boston, there were a number of outstanding performances turned in by coach Jehu Cimea’s squad.
Sophomore Kayshaun Eveillard captured first place vs. both Malden and Somerville in the 300 dash. In addition, Kayshaun’s clocking of 37.74 was the fastest among all of the GBL competitors (all of whom were taking part at the Reggie in other tri-meets that day) in the 300 event and was 1.29 seconds faster than his nearest rival, Revere’s JV Cunha. (The GBL this year is holding all of its meets at the same time for all eight schools in tri-meet form at the Reggie.)
In addition, Kayshaun’s performance qualified him for the upcoming Division 2 State Meet next month.
Donald Michel was another double-winner, topping both his Golden Tornado and Highlander opponents in the high jump with a leap of 5’-8”. In addition, Donald’s jump was the best on the day among all of the GBL schools and also qualified him for the State Meet.
Khang Nguyen defeated both his Malden and Somerville rivals in the long jump with a flight of 18’-10”, a flight that was the second-best among all GBL schools.
The other point scorers for the Crimson Tide boys were:
55 meter dash: Jeremiah St. Louis, 2nd vs. both Somerville and Malden. Jeremiah’s sprint of 6.97 was the third fastest among all of the 23 GBL competitors on the day;
600 dash: Dawrens Germain, 1st vs. Malden, 2nd vs. Somerville;
1000: Lucas Nunez, 1st vs. Malden;
1 mile: Nischal Tamang, 2nd vs. Malden;
2 mile: Anthony Whitlow, 3rd vs. Malden and Somerville;
High jump: Dawens German: 2nd vs. Malden, 3rd vs. Somerville. (Dawens qualified for the State Meet);
Long jump: Jalen Jones, 2nd vs. both Malden and Somerville; Jeremiah St. Louis, 3rd. vs. Malden
Shot-put: Fabrice Michaud; 2nd vs. both Malden and Somerville; Shane MacKenzie, 3rd vs. Somerville.
The Everett boys are scheduled to take on GBL opponent Lynn English today (Wednesday) at the Reggie.
Betancur-Cardona Takes Back EHS Shot-Put Record
The Everett High girls indoor track and field team came up short to both Malden (58-28) and Somerville 54-28) in a tri-meet with their Greater Boston League (GBL) foes last Tuesday that was held at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston.
However, a number of the Lady Crimson Tide turned in outstanding performances.
Layla Betancur-Cardona set a new EHS record in the shot-put with a toss of 32’-5.25”, which not only defeated her Malden and Somerville rivals, but also was the best among all of the shot-put competitors from the GBL schools who were competing in other tri-meets that day. (The GBL is holding its indoor season at the Reggie, with all of the GBL schools competing against each other on the same day in tri-meets.)
Layla’s throw broke the previous school indoor mark (31’-11.25”) that had been established just weeks ago by teammate Darrynn Desrameaux, who finished second among all GBL throwers on the day with her toss of 30’-10.24”.
“The battle for the school record in the shot continues,” said EHS head coach Jehu Cimea, “as Layla took over the school record from Darrynn. With that throw, Layla qualified for the Division 2 State Meet.”
Similarly, senior Suzanne Maharjan defeated both of her Malden and Somerville foes and also recorded the top time among all of the GBL schools with her clocking of 16:04.94.
Junior Yelsa Garcia was another double-victor for Everett in the tri-meet, speeding to victory in the 55 meter dash with a sprint of 8.25 that topped all of her Malden and Somerville rivals.
Also scoring points for the Lady Crimson Tide in the tri-meet were:
55 meter dash: Isabella Pimenta, 3rd vs. Malden, 2nd vs. Somerville;
300 dash: Zyelle Cannon-Mathis, 2nd vs. Malden; Angelina Papa, 3rd vs. Malden;
600 dash: Milena Antoino, 1st vs. Malden, 3rd vs. Somerville;
1000: Tiffany Escobar, 2nd vs. Malden;
Shot-put: Tiana Allen, 3rd vs. Somerville.
4 x 200 relay: (A. Papa, Z. Cannon-Mathis, I. Pimenta, Y. Garcia) 1st vs. Somerville.
Cimea and his Lady Crimson Tide are set to meet GBL foe Lynn English at the Reggie today (Wednesday).
