Weekend track roundup: Peabody boys, girls both win NEC meets


”It was a great day and a perfect way for the girls to end their season,” said head coach Jay Smith. “The last time they were undefeated was 2009, so it’s been a few years.”


Senior Patrick Corcoran doubled in the shot (47-0) and discus (126-3) to lead Fenwick to a second place finish (98 points). Senior Matt O’Brien became the first person at Fenwick to qualify for the pole vault (10-0) since 1974. Senior Bryan Mendes won the mile (4:38) and anchored the winning 4x800 relay team (9:14). Nick Tambini rounded out the day with a second place finish in the 110 high hurdles (16.9).

Evan Dombrowski had a big day for St. John’s, winning the shot put (53-3), taking second in the discus (141-4) and being named the Outstanding Performer for the Conference. As of Saturday, Dombrowski’s shot put throw of 57-2 earlier this spring was still the top throw in the state. Tim Loehner also won the 2-mile for the Eagles in 9:52.31.
