Reggies' Tejeda, Whittier girls win state voke titles

Behind a fourth place from Corinne Bilodeau, a seventh from Anyelina Martinez and an eighth from Emmy Mei, Whittier won the 14-team State Vocational Meet.

“It’s a pretty exciting day for us,” said Whittier coach Jay Ihle. “We’ve worked very, very hard. A lot of girls ran the race of their lives. For Corinne, that’s the best she has ever raced. Same with Emmy Mei.”

Upstart Greater Lawrence placed fifth, it’s best ever finish. Carmen Rivera placed 14th to lead the Reggies.

Reggies’ Tejeda dominates

Greater Lawrence Tech’s Yosvaldy Tejeda ran away with the State Vocational title. The junior standout completed the 3.1-mile Wrentham Developmental Center course in 16:37 to win by 23 seconds.

“That’s a nice time,” said Reggies coach Jay Santomassino. “If he runs that Saturday (at EMass. Division 3 meet), he should qualify for All-States. And he should run faster against that competition.

“That’s a legitimate time today. He’s healthy and running great. He was out in front all alone. This is the high point of his career. Qualifying for All-States would be an even higher goal. Nobody for us through at least 1996 has done it, or even come close.”

The Reggies also got “a great effort” from Dylan Colon, a first-year runner who placed ninth in 17:48. Miguel Cumba placed 11th. The Reggies placed second overall among 23 teams. League rival Greater Lowell won the title.

A-B stuns previously-unbeaten Central

A dream season came to a crashing halt as unbeaten Central Catholic (19-0) fell to fifth-seeded Acton-Boxboro, 1-0, in the Division 1 North girls soccer semifinals.

A-B, which has outscored the opposition 6-0 in three tourney wins, improved to 15-2-3.

The Colonials scored the game winner off a cross with about three minutes left in the first half. It was the eighth goal of the year for junior midfielder Alex Spangler.
