Congratulations to the Wellesley High School girls’ & boys’ track & field teams, which on Feb. 13 once again won the Division 2 state titles in convincing fashion at the Reggie Lewis Track & Athletic Center.
For the girls, this is 4 indoor track & field titles in a row. The boys defended their title.
These teams graduate amazing athletes each year but have instilled a culture that attracts and develops more excellent athletes each season.
This time around, both teams relied on depth and teamwork. The girls won the 4×200 relay and finished second in the 4×400, while individually, Abby Comella placed second in the 300-meter race and Grace Wheelan came in 5th in the mile. The boys, as usual, wrecked the competition in the 4×800. Jackson O’Toole won the 1000m race, Derek Chalmers contributed in multiple events and won the 300m race, and Zach Barry ran to 2nd in the mile.
We’d love to do a better job of keep you posted on Wellesley High School sports in the spring.
