O'Donnell wins Division 1 state mile

Andover's Comeau, Kobelski and Hillies' Mayhew all place second

(Continued)

It’s good to be wearing the Brown and Gold again.

“I love track,” he said. “I’m really glad to be back.”

He said placing second means everything to him.

“I’ve been working really hard in practice and it really paid off,” he said.

Mayhew isn’t just a track star. He also participated in cheerleading for Haverhill. He said he did it just for the conditioning and to get in better shape.

Did he ever take any heat from his classmates and friends for being the only boy on the cheerleading squad?

“Oh, yeah, every week, every day, something new,” he said, smiling. “But do what you love to do. If you love taking photos, take photos. If you love doing track, do track. If you love playing football, do football. I absolutely loved the cheerleading. I loved to do flips and I just love to stunt.”

Mayhew, who did All-Star cheerleading last year, runs the 100, 200 and 4x200 during the spring. He said his best race is the 100. He plans to attend Northern Essex and then transfer to a state college.

Captain Kobelski

Andover’s Cassie Kobelski — also known as Captain Kobelski — placed second in shot put (37-6.50).

“I do theatre as well as track so when I’m in theatre, they all tease me. They’re like, ‘Oh, Captain Kobelski,’” she said.

As for track — Kobelski was seeded second entering yesterday’s meet.

“I’m glad I managed to hold onto my seed,” she said. “The only thing I wish I could have done better was improve upon my throw. One of my warm-up throws was on the 40-foot line. And I would have liked to have gotten one of those recorded. So I definitely think I could have done better. But I’m happy I got second place.”
