> The All State Track and Field Championships were held Saturday at Fitchburg State University. The Girls team was lead by sophomore sprinter and jumper Alex Santos, Alex placed 7th in the long jump and 6th in the 200 meters to medal in both events.

Sam Coletti medaled and placed 7th in the mile, finishing off an amazing season. Senior Kelsey Tierney ran the 2 mile for the lady Panthers and finished an outstanding career, she will run next year at Tufts. On the boys side freshmen Brian Edwards competed in the high jump getting out at 5'10", Brian was the only freshmen in the state to qualify for the high jump yesterday, his future is very bright.
