New Englands: Samuel (100, 200), Howes (pole vault) smash own area marks

There were a slew of spectacular performances by local athletes at Saturday’s 70th annual New England Championships in Saco, Maine. Methuen junior Wileshka Samuel broke her own area records with a 12.19 in the 100 meters and a 24.94 in the 200. She placed third in the 200 and finished just out of the money (top 6 score) with a seventh in a loaded 100 field. “It all came together nicely,” said Rangers coach Nick Collopy. “It’s fun to coach her and fun to watch. Her times have improved every week the last four weeks.” The Rangers also came up big in the boys relays with a fifth in the 4x800 and a sixth in the 4x400. John St. Hilaire and sophomore Fernando Damota ran on both. Caveney vs. Coach Andover coach Peter Comeau saw his 31-year-old 300 intermediate hurdles record fall to Golden Warrior senior Sean Caveney. Andover usually runs the 400 hurdles but Caveney made the transition with a 38.64 to place second. That’s considered faster than former New England champ Comeau’s hand-timed 38.6 and the automatic time by AHS’s Steve Shepard with a 39.05 in 1992. ”People think I’m crazy for saying this, but I’d rather be the coach of the guy who breaks it. That was awesome. It was very exciting,” said Comeau. Andover’s 4x400 team brought home the gold with anchor Hamza Naveed running a 48.8 split to make up a 10-yard deficit. They ran a speedy 3:19.61 to move up to second all-time in our area. Naveed teamed with Caveney, Raymond Gorzela and Jeremy Travaglini. Ace high hurdler Sebastian Silveira was just off his school record with a 14.24 for fourth. Duffy, 4x800 records North Andover’s super sophomore Erick Duffy soared 15-3, continuing his remarkable recent stretch of personal bests, to take third in the pole vault. The 4x800 team of Zach Frahlich, Chris Dalke, Chris Lord and Marty Conrad nipped their own school record for a fourth place. Howes another record Londonderry’s Natalie Howes added over two feet to her own area javelin record with a 139-1 to win the event.
