Haverhill's Stabile sisters reunited at Quinnipiac

Haverhill's Stabile sisters back together and still breaking records

Becca Stabile calls it “Hillie pride down in Connecticut.”

This is a unique strain of Hillie pride, too. It’s all Stabile all the time.

The Stabile sisters from Haverhill are teaming up once again with results similar to their charmed careers at Haverhill High.

After 2.5 frustrating years at Northeastern and UMass Lowell, Sam Stabile, Becca’s older sister, thought her career was over. Last year she transferred to Quinnipiac in Hamden, Conn., and decided to give it another go.

She knew she had made the right decision to join her sister and take the spikes out of moth balls. There was absolutely no doubt about it when two weeks ago they helped the Bobcats, a Division 1 program still in its infancy, set the school 4x400 record of 3:56.03 at the Larry Ellis Invitational at Princeton University.

“That was so cool,” said Becca, a sophomore. “To set a record together was awesome. It’s really cool being able to run with her again. I love it.”

Sam, a senior, said, “That was awesome. I hadn’t really run any 400s. I was a little nervous. I got my legs back. I was so excited.”

Also that day Becca broke her own school record with a 63.17 in the 400 hurdles. She’s since lowered it twice with a best of 62.72 as the fourth qualifier yesterday at the Northeast Conference Meet. She also owns the area high school 400 hurdles record of 63.50.

The Stabile name is all over the record books for the upstart Bobcats. Sam set school marks of 12.86 in the 100 meters and 26.43 in the 200 meters last spring, but another Quinnipiac runner topped them this season. Sam also hold the record for the high jump 5-3.5 and recently ran a 26.26 200.

The Stabile clan is a competitive bunch. But Sam is just happy to be enjoying herself on the track again.
