Rams’ Girls’ Track Wins Shoreline Crown

Photo by John Vanacore

The Old Saybrook girls’ outdoor track squad won its fourth straight Shoreline Conference crown on May 22 at Coginchaug High School.

The seniors that have led the Old Saybrook girls’ outdoor track team will certainly go down in history for helping to lead the Rams to four consecutive Shoreline Conference titles during their tenure, the most recent being on May 22 at Coginchaug High School with 156 points scored—14.5 ahead of the competition. “The seniors were a very strong component in this win,” said Coach Peter Capezzone. “It’s their fourth in a row and they know how to win and know what it takes. When they were freshmen, they were just moving into that and each year they developed a little better on what it takes to win. There’s a lot of team leadership there.” Prevailing at the meet was the 4x800 relay team of senior Erin Daley, Mahlah Givehand, Kristy Ledwith, and Megan Rubano (10:05.88), the meet-record-breaking 4x4 team of Alison Daley, Kiran Khosla, Erin Daley, and Cori Reid (4:08.33), along with senior Katie Beezer in the 100 high hurdles (15.66) and senior Reid in the 800 (2:22.97) and javelin (110-0). “Our entire team gets along and we hang out outside of school, so I think that helps and we bring that to the team in general,” said Reid. “I try not to think about the pressure too much in a meet like this, but I work well under it.” Also scoring points for the Rams were Heidi Thomas in the 100 high hurdles (3rd, 16.68), Reid in the 100 dash (2nd, 12.72), Amanda Simoni in the 100 dash (6th, 13.82), Mahlah Givehand in the 1,600 (3rd, 5:40.90) and 3,200 (4th, 12:12.92), Khosla in the 400 (2nd, 1:02.25) and 200 (4th, 27.13), senior Alison Daley in the 400 (6th, 1:04.64), Beezer in the 300 (4th, 50.67), triple jump (3rd, 33-7½), and long jump (6th, 15-5½), Amy Robinson in the long jump (5th, 15-8¾) and high jump (3rd, 4-10), senior Wright in the discus (2nd, 87-1), javelin (2nd, 99-5), and shot put (4th, 29-9), Jocelyn Hanley in the pole vault (3rd, 8-6), and Katie Seegert in the pole vault (5th, 8-0). “We really needed the kids to come through—they’re smart kids and they’re getting better,” said Capezzone. “It’s nice to see how veteran they’re getting. We had a hiccup in the 4x1 where there was a botched hand-off, but sometimes you find out a little more about your team and your teammates are going to have to pick it up and they did. We had a lot of personal bests today and it took all of them to win the meet. Our pole vaulters stood out against a strong East Hampton core, but the icing on the cake was the final event when the 4x4 broke the meet record—it was nice to see them get that and at that point we knew. I think a lot of things derive from maturity and from the kids kind of picking each other up.” Despite the hand-off mishap in the 4x100 relay, the Rams held it together and rallied around their teammates, keeping their eye on the prize. “We didn’t want them to get down on themselves; we knew we had to work harder once that happened to make sure we could still make it happen,” said Reid. “It was mainly that we just definitely didn’t want them to think it’s their fault if we didn’t win.” For the second-place boys, who scored 97.5 points, the Rams saw a plethora of talent show off their skills as well, including senior Greg Daley who prevailed in the long jump (21-2¼) and scored points in the 110 high hurdles (2nd, 15.61), discus (2nd, 132-8), and triple jump (3rd, 42-5¼). Also putting up points were Clay Hobbs in the 300 hurdles (2nd, 43.45) and 110 high hurdles (5th, 16.35), Zach Chupak in the shot put (2nd, 44-4) and discus (4th, 131-3), the 4x800 relay team of Derek Arbige, Mike Souza, Tom Strand, and Alex VanVliet (6th, 8:33.35), the 4x100 team of Austin Smith, Nick Sumby, Hobbs, and Jailan Swain (4th, 45.69), Sumby in the 110 high hurdles (6th, 16.36), triple jump (4th, 40-8 ½), and pole vault (2nd, 14-0), Sone Sourignamath in the triple jump (5th, 39-3¾), and Davis Boyd in the javelin (6th, 135-8). “We all talked about what we needed to do beforehand,” said Greg Daley, a captain. “I definitely rested up because I’ve been working pretty hard, getting ready for this meet. I actually ended up personal besting in the long jump and triple jump, so it paid off. The competition was really good. I had one of my best times in hurdles, but beating Will Teas is a hard thing to do. The biggest advice I tried to give the team beforehand was go to sleep early, eat right, and drink lots of water. Anything you can do two days ahead of the meet really helps. I think everyone did their best, so it was a good day.”
