BOYS TRACK

The St. John’s Prep track team needed a big time performance from its 4x400 relay team if it wanted to remain undefeated with a win over Tri-County League foe St. John’s Shrewsbury yesterday afternoon.

Andrew Zucco, Jack Sanford, Sean Waldron and Will Stark each ran an individual best in the event and the group time of 3:34.17 was the fastest by any group of Eagles this season by three seconds as SJP topped St. John’s Shrewsbury, 49-46, at the Reggie Lewis Center in Roxbury.

“That’s the best team we could put out there. It was four kids and four personal bests at a critical moment,” said St. John’s Prep coach Ray Carey. “It was a very exciting finish.”

The Eagles (5-0) insured themselves at least a share of the league crown as Henry Nicolas won the 55 dash (7.00), Liam Dow was first in the mile (4:34.61) and Evan Dombrowski captured the shot put (50-7). Stark was first in the 600 (1:28.90) with Zucco scoring a very big second place in the same event.

Bishop Fenwick 39, ArlINGTON Catholic 34: Senior Patrick Corcoran had a personal best throw of 46 feet 9 1/4 inches to easily take first place in the shot put, powering Fenwick to its fifth win in six winter meets. Eric Loehle won the 1000 (23:08), Bryan Mendes topped the two mile (10:28) and Kevin Hannon captured the high jump for the Crusaders while the 4x400 relay team of Loehle, Frank Tambini, Patrick Walsh and Brendan McCarthy also earned first place.

Tigers split: Ipswich moved to 4-2 on the season, beating Amesbury 59-27 and falling to Masconomet 51-35. Alex Jean-Charles continued his undefeated season in the dash with a winning time of 5.1 seconds. Robbie Fay also remained undefeated on the season in the 300 (41.95). Michael Riddle is also undefeated in the 2-mile, winning with a time of 10:16.91 Other good performances for the Tigers included Neil Coleman in the high jump and 600, Chris McCormack in the shot put and 600 and Nick Mammollette in the 1000.
