Andover relayers win New England title

ROXBURY — Disappointed with a second-place finish at All-States, the Andover High 4x400-meter relay team approached the New England Championships with the eye of the tiger.
Natick edged the Blue and Gold last week but Friday night at the Reggie Lewis Center was a different story.
Jeremy Travaglini (51.0 seconds), Sean Caveney (50.7), Ray Gorzela (51.7) and Hamza Naveed (49.6) combined to break the tape in 3:23.49, the fastest time in the Bay State this year, said proud head coach Peter Comeau.
“They were going for it,” said Comeau. “They were gunning it.”
Comeau has called Naveed the greatest anchor to ever run at Andover. He lived up to the high praise once again. Make it twice again.
With stars Sean Caveney and Sebastian Silveira unavailable as they were running the hurdles, the 4x200 team still came up big.
Travaglini, Gorzela, Andrew Lucia and Naveed placed third in 1:31.70.
Those hurdles still made a major impact. Silveira broke his own school record and lost a photo finish for the gold. He was clocked in 7.445 while Kevin Saccone of Old Rochester won in 7.441. Caveney took fifth in 7.68.
It was a huge day locally on the hurdles as Central Catholic senior Jack McInnis had a “Ripley’s Believe it or Not” performance. Running out of lane 7, he placed seventh.
His time? 7.77.
Methuen’s 4x800 team just missed cracking the all-time area honor roll. John St. Hilaire (1:56), Devin Allen (2:00), Fernando Damota (2:02) and Matt Marchand (2:02) finished in 8:01.31 to place fourth.
For his second straight meet, Londonderry senior Starlin Ortiz soared 6-7. He placed third.
Several of the top local athletes have stated they will be heading to nationals at the New York Armory March 13-14.

Title time for Jordan, Flaherty, McInnis

The North Andover High boys exuded depth and athleticism by taking second overall at the Division 2 State Indoor Track Championships.
"It's one of the best teams we've ever had at the high school," said coach Steve Nugent. "I couldn't be prouder of them for the way they answered the call each and every time we competed this year."
Owen Jordan cleared 6-5 to win the high jump, the Knights' lone victory. Sophomore Jukka Morales was second in the 55 meters.
On the girls side, the Knights featured one champion as well.
The girls high jump looked like an evenly-matched field. And North Andover's Catherine Flaherty showed up when it counted. The Scarlet Knight cleared 5-foot-4 to win the State Division 2 high jump title.
Speaking of peaking at the right time, Central Catholic senior Jack McInnis is having a February to remember.
The Raider broke eight seconds for the first time in the 55 hurdles last week at the Merrimack Valley Conference meet. And yesterday, he broke through with the biggest victory of his life, taking the Division 2 state title in a sizzling 7.79.
"It was a shock to the team, and I think he surprised himself a little bit," said Central coach Mike Leal
