Saugus girls track shines

Saugus girls track beat Salem, 101-6, on Senior Night.

“This was our first meet where we had a full roster as we have struggled with injuries all season,” Saugus coach Joe Alba said. “We lost our star sprinter and three-year captain Madi Femino to a torn meniscus for the rest of the season, so filling in her role is very tough. The girls have been great this season as a few have already qualified for the Division 4 state tournament that will take place May 23 and May 25 at Westfield State University. With us being a small team, they still continue to impress me every single day with their personal records, hard work, and dedication.”

Some results from Salem:

  • Jessica Bremberg (senior captain): first place in the long jump, triple jump, and the 400
  • Destiny Okoye (freshman): first place in the high jump and 100
  • Soraya Mathieu (eighth grade): second place in the 100 and long jump
  • Alesha Bien-Aime (sophomore): first place in 100 hurdles and second place in triple jump
  • Angie Lopez (junior captain): first place in 200 and shot put
  • Kendall Hatch (junior): first place in discus and second place in shot put
  • Brianna Feldman (junior): first place in 400 hurdles and second place in discus

Girls 4x100m relay remains undefeated this season and qualified for states. The 4×100 relay team includes Destiny Okoye, Savanna Ceruolo, Jess Bremberg, and Soraya Mathieu.

Three Saugus girls also competed in the NEC Freshman/Sophomore meet at Gloucester on May 4.

“Despite only having three girls, we went there and represented the town of Saugus very well,” Alba said.

Okoye, a freshman, won in the high jump, was runner-up in the 200, and took third place in the 100. Peyton DiBiaso, a sophomore, took runner-up (second place) in the javelin, fifth place in the high jump, and sixth place in the 400 hurdles. Sophomore Bien-Aime had a very strong performance in the 100 hurdles and triple jump.

“With the three of them performing, we got ourselves eighth out of 10 teams, scoring 39 points,” Alba said. “They impressed me. The girls performed really well, and the fact the three of them got 39 points is outstanding. I look at this like a win, and it excites me for what is in the near future for these athletes. Saugus girls track is heading in the right direction.”

Saugus’ next meet will be on May 10 at Winthrop, where it will be taking on a very competitive and well-coached Vikings squad. They beat Danvers by six, and the Sachems lost to them.

“We were short-handed due to injury that meet,” Alba said, “but if we stay healthy and we perform well, I believe this meet will come down to the wire.”
