Weekend area roundup: Masco boys win eight events, take Cape Ann League Open


The Masconomet boys track team won eight individual events and two relays and rolled to a victory in the Cape Ann League Open Saturday.

The Chieftains piled up 156 1/2 points, easily enough to beat runner-up Ipswich, which finished with 100 points.

David Drigo won both the javelin (180-6) and shot put (44-4) and was also a member of the winning 4x400 relay team (3:33.13) along with Aidan Hart, Jack Jennings and Brian Gilbert.

Regan Charie was also a double-winner for Masco, taking first in the 100 (11.6) and 200 (21.90). His time in the 200 set a new Masco school record.

Tristan Cluster was the winner in the 400 hurdles (56.91) and took third in the 400 (51.88). Steve O’Reilly (discus, 130-1), Dan Raphael (800, 2:00.32) and Harry Kent (2-mile, 9:56.66) were also winners for the Chieftains. Nathaniel Houston, Will Johnson, Dan Cosgrove and Kyle Faddis teamed up to win the 4x800 relay in 8:36.46.

“We had a good supporting cast as well. It made for a great day,” said Masco coach Dana Picillo, whose team went 9-0 in the regular season. “We got what we hoped for. We were kind of expecting that those people would win and they did.”

Despite finishing behind Masco, Ipswich also had a very good day.

Alex Jean-Charles was first in the long jump, second in the triple jump and second in the 100 meters. Matt Jaeger added a win in the triple jump and a second in the long jump. David Dick was also second in the pole vault.

Tim Lee took third in the shot put and discus for the Tigers while Nate Glaster (200) and Brian Bahar (110 hurdles) also had third-place finishes.

The 4x100 team of Glaster, Ryan White, Jaeger and Jean-Charles took second.

Kotch, Gillis lead H-W: The Generals finished sixth with 29 points led by second-place finishes by Sean Kotch (110 hurdles, 15.95) and Matt Gillis (2-mile, 10:03). Bobby Grinnell finished sixth in the 400 (53.28) and fourth in the 400 (60.9) while Jared Beane was fifth in the javelin (131-10) and Ian Riaf was sixth in the 100 (12.06). Hamilton-Wenham’s 4x400 relay of Riley Frackelton, Dan Knudson, Michael Allara and Eric Wescott were fourth in 3:46 and the 4x100 of Riaf, Frackelton, Whatt Howell and Jon Thissell was sixth in 47.4.
