Phillips runner soaring quickly

Phillips' sophomore Shehadeh already among all-time best

(Continued)

Shehadeh may have developed some of her competitive juices from Cayla Hatton, the Phillips Academy student who became a national standout last year without competing for the Big Blue.

Currently the No. 2 runner for a strong Stanford team, Hatton ran the second fastest time ever for a high school runner in both the 5,000 (15:50) and 10,000 meters (33:17).

“We ran together quite a lot and I definitely looked up to her,” said Shehadeh. “She’s an amazing runner and I hope to be like her some day. If all goes well, and I keep getting faster, I’d love to run in college like she is. I just love running.”

Actually, it looks like Shehadeh is well on her way to being just like Hatton.

Riley, Methuen

sophmores shine

Haverhill junior Riley Gilmore, who captured the Junior-Senior girls race, and Methuen’s sophomore boys stood out at the State Coaches meet Saturday. In the sophomore race, Matt Marchand, Cam Pavao and John St. Hilaire finished 6-7-8 and, running up a class, freshman Jeff Reddy was 17th. Haverhill’s Christian White was fifth.

Gilmore won easily, in a nifty 19:09, with Andover’s Leila Aruri third in 19:36.6 and Warrior teammate Meghan McPhee sixth in 19:52.8.

Prep is ready

The St. John’s Prep team seemed to have taken a step backward at the Bay State Invitational in Northfield, finishing fifth, but coach John Boyle didn’t want his team going all out on the rugged course and the strategy seems to have worked.

Coming back the next week, the Eagles cruised to yet another Catholic Conference record with West Newbury’s Liam Dow leading the way by placing first overall.

St. John’s will be in a dogfight with Methuen Saturday at the Division 1 Eastern Mass. meet in Wrentham as both schools will be attempting to qualify for the All-State meet Nov. 17 in Northfield.
