She beat runner-up Vanessa Attaya of Billerica by over two feet.    
Coach Katie Andrade said, “Amanda had a great day today. She’s worked hard all season, both in the throws and the sprints, with placing at this meet as the ultimate goal. She definitely achieved that goal winning the shot and placing eighth in the 4x200. Amanda is so competitive, she never shied away from the prospect of having to PR big time in order to win.” 

Knights’ coach Steve Nugent said, “Just to put things in perspective, he pretty much practiced just one day this week. He vaulted and got 18 stitches in the face from the pole on Wednesday. Now he’s on an air plane to Spain with our Spanish Exchange. He’s just one of those special athletes.”
Duffy also anchored the second-place 4x200 team, which set a new school record. His teammates were Matt Manteiga, Tyler Glendon and Stephen Stabile.
