Back on track

Andover's Haut back from injuries, wins long jump at MVC meet

(Continued)

A star in the triple jump outdoors, Haut is quite the student. She has applied to eight schools: Amherst College, UMass Amherst, Bates, Bowdoin, Colby, Holy Cross, Dartmouth and Middlebury.

BOYS RESULTS

On the boys side, Lowell won (79) with Andover second (58), North Andover third (57), Methuen fourth (40), Central Catholic fifth (39) and Lawrence sixth (38).

REDDY’S DILEMMA

Methuen’s Jeff Reddy wanted to run the mile at States next week because he’s less than a second away from breaking the Methuen sophomore school record for the event. The record is 4:35.65. Reddy’s best time this year is 4:35.77.

But now he’s reconsidering running the mile after winning the 2-mile yesterday in 9:50.31.

“After this race I don’t know because I could potentially get to All-States for the 2-mile,” Reddy said.

Reddy didn’t run indoor track last year. He started for the Rangers freshman basketball team. He loves basketball but realized his true calling is long-distance running.

“After this cross country season, when I made it to All-States and I ran well there, I decided I should go out for this so I can get even better,” Reddy said.

ADDING MORE HARDWARE

Haverhill’s Riley Gilmore added to her long list of accomplishments that already includes being named an Eagle-Tribune All-Star five times (three times in cross country, once in winter and spring track).

The UNH-bound senior won the 2-mile (11:25.63) yesterday.

“I’ve just been kind of working on having my miles stay pretty much as even as possible and staying smooth,” Gilmore said. “I think I did pretty well today. My splits were pretty even so I’m happy with it.”

WILSON WINS

Central Catholic’s Dan Wilson won the boys long jump (20-61/2).

“My goal is always to get over 20 at least,” Wilson said. “I just pushed myself. I saw the kid from Andover (Jeremy Travaglini) get one inch in front of me with his last jump. So I really kicked it into gear.”
