MIAA All-state girls’ indoor track

Notre Dame (Hingham) takes indoor track title

Notre Dame (Hingham) didn’t even compete in the final event, and the Cougars still came out winners Saturday.

With just the 4 x 400 left to run at the MIAA All-State Girls’ Indoor Track and Field Championships at Reggie Lewis Center, Notre Dame had a single point lead over Bishop Feehan, 29-28, with Cambridge (23) third.

Bishop Feehan, the 16th seed in the event, had to finish seventh or better to win the championship. Cambridge, the fifth seed, had to finish third to tie and second to win.

“At that point, it’s out of our control. We just took care of ourselves and whatever happens, happens,” said Notre Dame coach Rick Kates. “I’m a firm believer in letting the results dictate what happens and the score reflects what we did.”

Mansfield’s foursome of Maddie Oldow, Lindsay Goulet, Rachel Stier, and Mikaila Amerantes won the race in 3:58.65, with Cambridge finishing fifth, and Feehan 13th to give the Cougars the title.

“It’s just a humble opportunity and I am just so proud of the girls,” said Kates.

“My coaching philosophy is not to think about where we think we’d place. I just tell the girls it’s about the final score and how we did then.”

Notre Dame and Bishop Feehan were followed by Cambridge (27), Marshfield (26), and Hingham (25).

Notre Dame earned points in five events, led by junior Isabella DiMare’s victory in the 55-meter hurdles (8.32).

Bishop Feehan senior Abbie McNulty claimed victory in the mile, where she was the top seed, winning in 4:55.25, steps ahead of Lowell sophomore Kaley Richards (4:57.18). McNulty was also the top seed in the 2 mile, but she was edged by Richards (10:59.97). McNulty finished second in 11:02.53.

The Cambridge foursome of Sydney Fisher, Jordan Poindexter, Kenlee Presume, and Maya Halprin-Adams, won the 4 x 200 in 1:44.07.

Dracut sophomore Rachel Flores, junior Katie Colfer, and seniors Kaylee Shepard and Karina Shepard won the 4 x 800 in 9:26.19.

Sierra Irvin, a junior at Hingham, won the 300 in a meet-record time of 39.04, beating the 2006 mark of 39.3, set by Northampton’s Sarah Wernick.

Hopkinton senior Jessica Scott was a double winner, taking home the state title in the 55-meter dash (7.04) and the long jump (18 feet, 2½ inches), setting personal-bests for both events.

Michaela Smith of Newton North took home the shot put title with a distance of 42-¾, and Marshfield senior Ellen DiPietro won the high jump by clearing 5-8.

Ursuline went 1-2 in the 600, with junior Amy Piccolo (1:34.81) leading senior Merissa Wright (1:35.75), while Dracut’s Karina Shepard claimed the 1,000 in 2:48.70.
