BOSTON — Lynnfield High girls’ indoor track and field head coach Adam DellAria knew his team had an uphill battle when his squad took on undefeated North Reading on Jan. 12 at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston.

The Pioneers ended up losing 74-41 to the Hornets. With that defeat, Lynnfield fell to 1-3 while North Reading improved to 4-0.

“They are going to win our league and should contend for the Division 4 state title,” said DellAria, about the Hornets. “They are very deep.”

Lynnfield did have three winners in the meet. Those three were Keely Briggs, Maddie Daigle and Riley Hallahan. Briggs won the 1,000 meters (3:37.75) while Daigle had a time of 12:58 in the two mile. Hallahan, meanwhile, had a toss of 31 feet in the shot-put.

The Pioneers had two second-place finishes: Maggie Davidson in the 600-meters (1:57.83) and Gabby Bottaro in the mile (6:09.56).

Three Pioneers placed third: Julia Carbone (7.95 in the 55-meters), Bianca Guarracino (47,12 in the 300-meters) and Katie Adamo (11-1 in the long jump).

This Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m., Lynnfield will compete in the Division 5 State Relays back at the Reggie Lewis Center. The Cape Ann League Meet will then take place on Feb. 8, also at the Reggie Lewis Center.
