CARVER – For the third year in a row the Carver High girls track and field team will take home the South Shore League Small School Division championship. The title was clinched Monday when the Crusaders ran their dual meet record to a perfect 6-0 with a 105-25 win over Mashpee.
"We’ve had a good season," Head Coach Sean Carey said. "We match up well with the rest of the league because we have some solid depth in most of the events. We only have two seniors, co-captains Katrina Millman and Meaghan Nickerson, so the underclassmen have really stepped up and done a nice job this spring."
Holly Lauzon won the high hurdles and the shot put against Mashpee, where a toss of 90-11 was good enough to qualify her for the Division 4 finals. Jordan Turner also won two events, taking the high jump as well as the long jump.
Other event winners included Hannah Burns (shot put), Charlotte Mcelroy (javelin), Millman (triple jump), Azelin Delguidice (low hurdles), Haley Nickerson (400), Bella Asam (800) and Laicey Ieronimo took first in the two-mile distance race.
The 4x100 (Millman. Mcelroy, Emma Larracey and Bella Teebagy) and the 4x800 relays (Delguidice, Haley Nickerson, Hannah Marino and Anna Walcek) were also victorious.
The Lady Crusaders have a couple more chances to add to the list of competitors they’ll send to the Division 4 state championships, which will be held at Ipswich High School Saturday, May 26.
The first opportunity came Thursday at the South Shore League championships at Norwell High. League meets also remain against Randolph and then Rockland May 22 as the Crusaders try to cap off a perfect dual meet season. If they lose both those meets they will share the league title with Cohasset/Hull.
The Patriot League All-Star meeting was held Tuesday and five Carver athletes made the list – Holly Lauzon, Emma Simmons, Emma Dion, Jordan Turner and Katrina Millman. In addition, Turner was named SSL MVP for the second consecutive season.
Two Crusaders hold the top distances in the SSL so far this season. Simmons has the longest javelin toss (93-11.5) and Turner’s long jump of 17-1.25 is the distance to beat in that event.
