2002 Class D State Meet at the Reggie Lewis Center

The Lady Gaels completed a very successful and very enjoyable indoor season by travelling to Boston for the final meet of the season. Despite the fact that only 5 members of the team qualified for the meet, all 11 team members made the trip to Boston in a great display of team spirit and unity. Laura J started the night off right in the mile, finishing third overall in the unseeded heat in a new personal best of 5:47.93. Marissa Lapointe, Vickie C, and Jill Bigos then took to the track for the 2 mile. Although none of the three were able to run a personal best time (due in some part at least to the fact that the race was really crowded from start to finish -- the pack was really closely bunched throughout), all three ran solid times, and should learn from a very successful season. Overall, this season was a great success! Although we didn't win a lot of meets, we did get spectacular performances from a number of people, and we did get some surprising efforts from a lot of people (Jess in the hurdles, Emily in the sprints, Jill in the 2 mile). This year's roster included 11 runners, which is the most we've ever had on the team. We managed to qualify 5 individuals for the class D state meet, which is also a new team best. With most of the team returning for the outdoor season, the spring season should be exciting and rewarding as well!
