Woonsocket Middle School T&F Prepares for the State Meet

Woonsocket Middle School Track & Field is in the final 2 weeks before the State Meet on May 19th, and we already have 15 kids qualified with two more meets left to qualify. Our kids have put on some impressive performances at the many home meets we have hosted, and this week travel to Lincoln for the final dual meet of the season. We are thrilled to give these kids the opportunity to enjoy the sport we all love and are impressed by their competitive spirit and fun-loving style! As always, thanks to coaches Katrina Spratford, Henry Sterling, and Jim Spisak for their hard work in running the program and even learning a new field event or two (Coach Jim is considering a switch from distance running to the turbo javelin after a solid practice throw last week that would have “definitely” qualified him for States). The picture above is of the Field Day that our volunteers from Bryant University put on for us at their campus last week.

NE Distance Elite Team Gears Up for Championship Season

Our elite team has a couple of early season races under their belts and now look to get in some fast times over the next 6 weeks. The Battle Road Twilight Series kicks off at Bentley University this Saturday evening, where the mid-distance crew of Ryan Widzgowski, Nick Ross, and Steve Mangan will be running the 800. Henry Sterling will be stepping down to the 1500 and Aaron Dinzeo will tackle the 5000m for his first track race of the season.
