North Shore High School Varsity Sports
The women's track and field team fortunately missed the blizzard by one day, but unfortunately, missed its fourth consecutive Conference Championship by one place. The girl's squad fought valiantly and finished second in the nine-team conference. Leading the way was seventh-grader Brianna Welch, who placed first in the 3000 and 600. Overall, Brianna scored 24 of the team's 97 points. Other All-Conference performers were juniors Maeve McGilloway in the 1000 and 1500, Tyler Murphy in the 55 hurdles, seniors Samantha Cummins in the racewalk, Adrienne Koslow and Ashley Lopez in the 4x800 relay and freshman Jen DiLeo in the 4x800 relay. Overall, these seven girls earned All-Conference honors. Other top performers were freshmen Debbie Gilbert, Eva Schlomann, and Taylor Shea in the 55m hurdles, freshmen Christie Goodman in the 55m dash, Sophia Pappas in the 1000m, sophomores Angela Shih, and Kirsten Oertle in the 600m, and junior Kristen Pearsall in the sprints. In the last five seasons, the girls track and field program has won two County Championships, three Conference Championships, and been runner-up twice. The team currently has 17 freshmen out of the 25-girl roster. Look for them to continue their winning ways in the spring and beyond.
