It’ll be a great season if: “We improve as a team and as young men,” said Padvaiskas.


Last season: 4-2

Head coach: Ray Carey (36th year)

Key returnees: David Roy, Sr., Shot Put; Evan Dombrowski, Jr., Shot Put; Josh Hubbell, Jr., 300/4x200/4x400 Relays; Andrew Zucco, Sr., 600; Jack Sanford, Sr., Middle Distance; Will Stark, Sr., Middle Distance; Liam Dow, Jr., Distance; Tim Loehner, Jr., Distance; Tom O’Shea, Sr., Distance; Will Raven, Sr., Hurdles/High Jump

It’ll be a great season if: “The kids make improvements and take the next step. We have a lot of seniors, and I think we’re set up for a pretty good record in dual meets, but we have to find good individuals to fill spots in the relays because that’s what you need to have at the state level,” said Carey.


Last season: 36-2 (Second at Division 1 North sectional and Division 1 states)

Head coach: Manny Costa (23rd year, 487-128-5)

It’ll be a great season if: The Eagles can survive the grind of facing the state’s toughest schedule. Powerhouses such as Timberlane, N.H. (5-time defending state champs), Mt. Anthony (25 straight Vermont state titles), Nashua North, Salem, N.H., LaSalle, R.I. and Bacon Academy of Conn. are all top programs in their state, not to mention other SJP in-state opponents such as Framingham, Lawrence, Franklin, Pembroke, Marshfield, etc.
