Andover freshman Molly Kiley won the 2-mile in 11:28.61 at the Division 1 State Meet Wednesday at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston.
The other top local girl was her sophomore teammate Jodi Parrott. She was second in the 55-meter hurdles with what Andover coaches said was a new school record (8.51). She was also fourth in the long jump (17-1) and tied for eighth in the high jump with freshman teammate Angela McNeeley (both 4-10). Kiley also ran on the Golden Warriors’ seventh-place 4x800 team.
Kiley and Parrott led Andover to an eighth-place finish with 25.25 points. Brookline was victorious with 62 points.
Haverhill got seventh-place finishes from senior Briana Hill in the 55 meters (career-best 7.64) and freshman Finleigh Simonds in the mile (personal best 5:17.38). Simonds also anchored Haverhill’s sixth-place 4x800 quartet.
On the boys’ side, Lawrence flexed its muscles with 28 points and a sixth-place finish. Lancer coach Bill Meuse said LHS had two new school records with Jordany Volquez in the 55-meter hurdles (2nd, 7.56) and the runner-up 4x200 team of Jerimil German, Volquez, Adonis Garcia, Eddie Gonzalez in 1:30.56.
German strutted his stuff with a third in the 55 meters in 7.50 while Gonzalez leapt 21-1 for a third in the long jump.
Methuen’s Stanley Hanci, Michael Soucy, Anthony Fortuna and Nassim Bendimerad grabbed a fifth in the 4x200. Hanci again came up big with a second in 35.34 in the 300 meters while Bendimerad was eighth in the dash.
Andover’s high jump tandem of Michael Makiej (second-place) and Jake Drake (fourth) both soared 6-4.
