Lancer Tracksters Make Ready For D-I Championships

The Londonderry High School track and field squads made their final competitive performances prior to this Friday’s Division I Championships at Winnacunnet High School pretty impressive ones.

The Lancer males and Lady Lancers both handed the Salem High School squads defeats Tuesday, May 17. And then Saturday both LHS contingents put forth some strong work on their own track at their annual Londonderry High Invitational.

GIRLS

Coach Sue Johnson’s Lady Lancers handed the host Salem Lady Blue Devils a 79-56 defeat early last week, and the LHS girls put exclamation points on their success by winning 10 events.

First places were turned in by Lexy Freire in the 100-meter hurdles (17.36 seconds) and the 300 hurdles (54.90); Madison McKivergan in the 400-meter dash (1 minutes, 04.18 seconds); Yorgelis Ortiz in the high jump (5 feet); Kalin Gregoire in the 800-meter run (2:34.99); Sarah Moriarty in the discus (90’8″); Jordan Dufresne in the pole vault (9’6″), and Kate Balcom in the javelin (108’7″).

The Lady Lancers also received victories from their 4×100 (52.51) and 4×400 (4:24.46) relay quartets.

At the invitational, events were won by Ortiz in the 100 (12.43) and Dufresne in the pole vault (10′).

BOYS

The LHS males were dominant at Salem High, winning 10 events just as the girls did.

The victories were registered by Cullen Enwright in the javelin (139’1″) and the pole vault (9’0″); Trevor Guay in the 300 hurdles (42.79) and the triple jump (39’05”); Kyle Foden in the shot put (48’4″) and the discus (121’3″); Noah Schrank in the 1,600 (4:44.62); Mark Gigliotti in the 400 (55.42), and Chris Zaino in the 800 (2:05.71). A relay win came from the Lancers’ 4×400 crew (3:49.10).

At their own invitational, the locals had Guay bag a win in the 300 hurdles (38.83) and their 4×800 quartet of Jared Kane, Zaino, Josh Wasserman, and Schrank prove unbeatable as well (8:12.61).
