Bombers upend Falcons in indoor track

NORTHAMPTON – The Westfield High School girls’ indoor track team defeated the Minnechaug 59-36 in the first Pioneer League match-up at Smith College Friday night.
Captain Ally Morin continued her dominance in the distance events by clocking the fastest times of any competitor at the venue for either session in the 2 mile (11:19.11) and 1 mile (5:23.88) capturing two firsts, 10 points for the team, and two Division 1 State qualifying times. For the mile, teammate Elizabeth Marcyoniak scored a 3rd place finish (6:45.26) with an Indoor Track personal best time.
Jessie Pratt had equally impressive performances, leading all other competitors for both sessions in the 300 meter with a Division 1 State qualifying time of 44.03 and the second fastest time of the night (9.43 seconds) in the 55 meter High Hurdles which was another Division 1 State qualifying time.
Like Morin, she captured both firsts for the league match-up with Minnechaug scoring 10 solid team points and also led the way for the sweep in the 55 meter High Hurdles with Westfield freshman Morgan Sanders taking second in her first indoor track meet competition (10.07) and Emily Andrews taking third (10.12).
Other Lady Bombers capturing first place finishes against Minnechaug included captain Mary Boudreau in the 55 meter dash (8.05), captain Bridget Hartnett in the 600 meter (1:43.39 – which was also the second fast competition time of the night in either session and another Division 1 State qualifying time), captain Jaymie White in the high jump (4-8), and sophomore Karly Diltz in the long jump (13-10).
Other second place finishes went to Hartnett in the High Jump (4-6), sophomore Kiany Roman in the long jump (13-7.25), sophomore Caleigh Rockwal in the 1000 meter (3:45.24), and junior MacKenzie Millikan in the 600 meter (1:53.30 – an indoor track personal best time by 2 seconds).
Other third place finishes went to sophomores Lindsay Stefano in the 55 meters (8.48) and Rachel Conklin in the 1000 meters (3:48.99).
