BOSTON — Four members of the Lynnfield High girls’ indoor track and field team participated in the Division 5 State Meet at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston last Friday. The Pioneers came in a tie for 28th place with a total of three points as there were nearly 40 teams overall competing.

Weston was first with 77.33 points.

Only the top eight finishers in each event score points.

Maddie Daigle, a junior, had the team’s best finish by coming in seventh in the two mile at a personal-record 12:27.38. Freshman Gabby Bottaro was 15th at 13:32.46.

“For Gabby to come in 15th as a freshman is exciting,” said Pioneers head coach Adam Dell’Aria. “Maddie also did very well with her personal-best time.”

Jasmine Rose had the third point by placing eighth with a time of 9.61 seconds in the 55-meter hurdle which is the senior’s personal-best time.

Senior, Maggie Davidson, was 20th in the 1,000-meters with a personal-best time of 3:30.59.

Unfortunately, the team was without senior Riley Hallahan, who just broke the school record in the shot-put in the Cape Ann League Meet on Feb. 8.

“I felt horrible for her,” admitted DellAria. “She was really sick and couldn’t make it.”

In the regular season, the Pioneers went 1-3 in the CAL as they came in fourth place in the CAL Kinney division. Then, in the league meet on Feb. 8 at the Reggie Lewis Center, they placed sixth out of the 10 CAL schools.
