Revere girls track team makes its mark

Last week at a tri-meet with Malden and Lynn Classical, the Revere High School girls track team put up two big wins to move to 5-0 on the season. It defeated Lynn Classical, 86-2, and Malden, 67-32.

Ashley Cabrera Rodriguez was the top scorer for the team at both meets, taking home three first-place finishes (15 points), both against Malden and Lynn Classical (55-meter dash, long jump and 4×200-meter relay). Olivia Rupp and Gemma Stamatopoulos continued their undefeated streak in each of their respective events (1 mile, and 600-meter) and both participated in the first-place 4×400-meter relay, putting up 10 points each for the Patriots.

Over the weekend, the team had a number of girls participate in the Massachusetts State Track Coaches Association (MSTCA) Northeast Invitational at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston.

Senior Ashley Chandler broke her own school record in the weight throw with a huge toss of 30-10, a full 10 feet farther than her throw last week, which set the school record. “Ashley really has shown a lot of determination working through this event on her own since it’s not typically contested in Massachusetts, and we don’t have the facility for it,” Revere coach Racquel MacDonald-Ciambelli said. “We’re hoping this throw will qualify her for the all-state exhibition in February.”

Stamatopoulos continued to improve her 600-meter personal best with a five-second PR, running 1:47.97, which puts her close to a state-qualifying time and only four seconds away from a school record.

Rupp also PRed in the 1,000-meter with a time of 3:32.76. Junior Ashley Cabrera Rodriguez tied her PR in the 55-meter dash (8.01) and is only 0.1 second away from a state-qualifying time. Basma Sahibi and senior captain Yara Belguendouz also PRed in the 55-meter hurdles; Belguendouz ran a 10.62 and Sahibi ran a 11.13.

“I am so proud of this team,” MacDonald-Ciambelli said. “The girls are really coming into their own and are extremely motivated to keep improving. We’ve also been seeing some young talent come through that are eager to try multiple events as they work toward finding their specialty events. It’s been great running at Reggie more consistently and the times/jumps/throws definitely reflect the change in track.”

Revere has no Greater Boston League meets this week but looks forward to the D1 State Relays on Saturday, Jan. 20, and then picking up league competition on Jan. 23.

Lynn Classical edged Revere, 34-33. “It was a tough loss to the Rams of Lynn Classical,” Revere coach Ariana Rivera said. “It came down to the wire, and we fell short.”

Belma Velic led the Patriots with 10 points, and Haley Belloise followed up with nine.

It was a wild sequence to close out this game. Captain Haley Belloise had a clutch take to the basket and a sweet finish over the outstretched hands of the Classical defender to tie the game in the final seconds. Revere then fouled a Rams player, and Classical hit one of two free throws to take the win.

The Revere High School swim team scored its second victory of the season against Lynn Classical, 85-76. Revere started the meet off by taking first and second in the 200-medley relay. Seniors Vilson Lipa, Alem Cesic, Matt Terrell and Juan Cano took first, followed by the team of seniors Jannet Sehli, Harrison Rua and Nate Hill and sophomore Nicholas Pedroza in second.

Hill and Sehli hopped right out of the pool and on to the blocks for the next race, the 200 freestyle, taking second and third, respectively.

Cano and Terrell went 1-2 in the 200 IM, pushing Revere’s lead to 12 points. Cesic and Rua built that lead to 18 with a 1-2 finish in the 50 free. Revere then ripped off three straight wins: from Terrell in the 100 fly, Lipa in the 100 free (with Sehli in third) and Cesic and Hill going 1-2 in the 500 free.

Lynn Classical mounted a comeback by taking first and third in the 200-free relay. But Cano and Lipa went 1-2 in the 100 back and Rua won the 100 breaststroke to put the meet away.
