BOSTON — The Cape Ann League indoor track and field meet took place on Feb. 8th at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. Of the 10 schools there, the Lynnfield High girls’ team placed 6th with 26 points. Pentucket came in first overall with 91 points.

“It was a good performance for us,” said Pioneers head coach Adam Dell’Aria. “We only have five seniors on the roster and this meet was about building our depth.”

Only the top six finishers in each event score points.

Riley Hallahan had the lone Pioneers win in the shot put with a school record toss of 33-8 feet. She broke the 2012 mark set by Hannah Adams whose throw was 31-9.5 feet.

Lynnfield had two fourth-place finishes: Gabby Bottaro in the two mile (13:06) and Jasmine Rose in the 55-meters hurdles (9.76).

Rose also placed sixth in the long jump at 14-4 and one half inches.

Maggie Daigle was fifth in the mile at 5:46 while the 4×200 relay team of Bianca Guarracino, Lily Rocco, Julia Carbone and Rose also came in fifth at 1:56.15.

This Friday, five Pioneers will complete in the Division 5 State Meet back at the Reggie Lewis Center. That meet will start at 4:30 p.m.

In the regular season, the Pioneers went 1-3 in the CAL as they came in fourth place in the CAL Kinney Division.
