Revere wrestlers shine for Malden

  Some Revere wrestlers had fine performances for the Malden wrestling team. The team is a cooperative program. The team just competed in Division 1 North sectionals.

Carlos Jimenez from Revere placed sixth at sectionals. “This was Carlos’s first season as a wrestler and his first few matches at the start of the season were wins,” Malden coach Kevin Isaza said. “Carlos suffered a ligament sprain in his shoulder earlier on causing him to have to sit out for close to eight weeks. After the eight-week mark, Carlos came back to us with a great attitude to finish his senior season on the podium. He battled hard at sectionals making it to semifinals, which he lost by a close margin. Carlos then worked his way up and finished sixth overall in the section, earning him a medal. We are extremely proud of Carlos and know he will be successful.”

Revere’s Hakim Malki had a great season. He placed in several tournaments this season, notably taking fifth at a competitive Whitman Tournament. Malki’s season unfortunately fell short due to injury.

Revere’s Radley Lekuku had an amazing season as a first-year starter in varsity. He wrestled in a competitive 138-pound weight class. “We are excited to see him back next season,” Isaza said.


Revere girls tracksters break new ground at states

  The 4×200-meter relay quartet of senior captain Giselle Salvador, Danni Hope Randall, Jaliyah Manigo and Ashley Cabrera Rodriguez broke the school record with a speedy time of 1:55.20 at the Division 1 state championships. The previous record (set in 2020) 1:55.51. “They had been bordering this record all season, and it was so great to see the girls finally get there,” Revere coach Racquel MacDonald-Ciambelli said. “They put in the work all week at practice perfecting their handoffs and getting their turnover down. Ashley ran a dominant anchor leg, splitting a 27.9.”

Gemma Stamatopoulos finished off the season with another PR in the 600-meter (1:45.50), which she has been dominant in all season. “Looking at the performance list, Gemma knew she was the fastest competitor in her heat and would have to lead the race from the start,” MacDonald-Ciambelli said. “Her strategy was flawless, and she finishes the season less than two seconds away from the school record.”

Sophomore Olivia Rupp competed in the mile and finished with a time of 6:07.78. “Olivia is battling an injury and still producing consistent times below 6:10,” her coach said. “We are confident with the proper strength training in the offseason she will come to outdoor stronger than ever.”

Junior Liv Yuong competed in three events at the state meet. She ran a 9.92 in the 55-meter hurdles. Though it’s not a PR, Yuong showed huge improvement in her three-step pattern between the hurdles. She also competed in the high jump, jumping 4-10, and in the long jump jumping 14-9. “This was a big preparation meet for Liv ahead of the pentathlon on Feb. 28,” MacDonald-Ciambelli said. “Liv will compete in the three above events, as well as the shotput and the 800-meter. I’m very confident she will improve her score from December and will even get close to the school record previously set in 2019.”


Revere boys hoops finishes strong

  Revere wrapped up its boys basketball campaign with a couple of competitive games in the General Patton Tournament at Hamilton-Wenham. The team fell to Greater Lawrence, 55-53, in the consolation round of the tourney. Senior captain Andrew Leone had 10 points and 12 rebounds, and junior Guard Ethan Day added 21 points and four assists.

“These kids never quit and competed every night,” said Revere coach David Leary, whose team finished the 2023-2024 campaign 6-14. “I am a proud coach.”

Day was named to the General Patton All-Tournament Team.

In the first-round game, the Patriots fell to Southeastern, 61-56. Day had 26 points and five rebounds, and junior guard Avi Lung added 10 points, five assists and three steals.
