Stanley LaForest and Ken Bailey both won two events to pace the Everett High boys track team to an 85-45 victory over Lynn Classical last week.

Stanley won the high jump and triple jump, with Kenney taking both the shotput and discus. LaForest also added a point for his third place effort in the 200 meter dash and Bailey did likewise in the 100 meter dash to give them each a team high 11 points on the day.

A host of other Crimson Tide performers also brought home first places in their specialties: Ricky Perez in the two mile, Matt Huse in the mile, David Lima in the 400, Ryan Canillas in the javelin, Ivan Velev in the 800, and the 4 x 400 meter quartet of Velev, Braythener Machado, Wesly Simeon, and Lima.

The Crimson Tide also grabbed second place in most events for all important three points to fuel their triumph: Machado in the 400 meter low hurdles; Nick D’Angelo in the 100 meter dash and the long jump; Dexter Dowe in the discus; Canillas in the mile, Dom Mucci in the 200 dash; Pete Duperier in 400 run; and Cody Dingman in the shotput.

Third place points were earned by Nick Oliveiri in the two mile, Francisco Guzman in the 100 high hurdles, Giuseppe Matarazzo in the mile, Perez in the 800, Mucci in the triple jump, and Dowe in the shotput.

“The boys team had a great performance all-around,” said EHS head coach Shelanda Irish. “Stanley LaForest, Ken Bailey, and Ricky Perez led the way for us. Stanley has done a great job for our team in the triple jump and high jump. This is his first season participating in track.

“Dom Mucci had a good 200 meter race and he’s also improved a lot in the triple

jump,” added the coach. “Kenneth Bailey and Dexter Dowe have led our throwers and Ryan Canillas has consistently scored for us in the javelin.”

The boys take on Cambridge today (Wednesday). The State Coaches Relay Meet is at Durfee High School in Fall River on Saturday.
