Division II

Coe-Brown girls, Lebanon boys win Division II track championships


 

HANOVER — Coe-Brown Academy of Northwood defended its girls' indoor track title with a dominating performance at the NHIAA Division II Indoor track championships at Dartmouth College Sunday.

On the boys' side, Lebanon won its fifth championship since 2005. Also, two Division II records were set in the girls' and boys' 4x800 meter relay.

Coe-Brown won three of 15 events — the 1,000 meter run (Hannah Parker), the 4x800 meter relay and the shot put (Alley Savioli). They placed in the top three in six other events.

The Bears earned 81 points, almost twice the 42 points Oyster River scored for second place. Lebanon was third with 36.

In the girls' 4x800 meter the Coe-Brown team of Parker, Katie Scannell, Mary Fowler and Brooke Laskowsky shattered the Division II girls' record of 9:50.36 by almost five seconds, in a time of 9:45.82 The meet's top female performer was Corinne Kennedy of Lebanon, who won the 300-meter dash and long jump. She came in second in the 55-meter hurdles and third in the 55-meter dash.

The Lebanon boys scored 69.5 team points, despite winning only two events, the long jump and high jump, both won by John Cioffredi.

"John and Will Merchant coming in 1-2 in the long jump was huge for us," said Lebanon coach Kevin Lozeau. "We were pretty spread out as far as points."

Portsmouth came in second with 65 points and defending champ Souhegan was third with 53.

The most dramatic race of the day was the boys' 4x800 meter relay that was decided by just 1/100th of a second. Portsmouth anchor man Joey Auger crossed the finish line in 8:19:95, a Division II record for the team of Sam Berube, Beckley Stearns, Jack Dewsnap and Auger. Merrimack Valley followed at 8:19.96. Souhegan finished third with a time of 8:20.06. All three teams beat the previous Division II record time of 8:21.74.

Souhegan's Eli Moskowitz won the 3,000-meter run and took second in the 1,500 meters.
