GIRL'S TRACK AND FIELD
Bristol Central 95, Berlin 55
The Berlin girls suffered their first loss of the season to Bristol Central 95-55. In the loss Berlin had several standout performances.
Senior Kate Piotrowicz broke her own school record in the discus. She scored a 104'5" throw on her first throw of the day. She then went on to win the shot put competition as well.
Liz Orsini continued her success in the pole vault, winning her fourth competition of the year at 7'6" and Meaghan Trzasko was victorious in the javelin for her fourth win.
Our 4x400m relay (Voelpel, Carbonell, Sylvain, Madeia) team posted its fastest time of the season running 4:13.73. Alex Carbonell and Catherine Voelpel continued their winning. Carbonell won the 800m race and was part of the winning 4x400 and 4x800m relay teams while Catherine won the 200, 400 and was part of both winning relay teams.
"Central is really tough because they have so many kids," Berlin coach Steve Soucy said. "They have the ability to run their kids in one or two events each while we have to run our kids in four to keep up. The extra events catch up to you in the race times.
"While the result is obviously disappointing, I was happy with the times our kids put up. It was the first real challenge for some of our top runners and their times were right where we wanted them. For the first time this year Catherine was under 60 in the 400 and under 27 in the 200. That is a few weeks ahead of where she was last year at this time."
Tolland 6, Berlin 1
Dan Rombola had an outstanding win at number one singles beating a talented freshman and getting back to a .500 record at 2-2.
The other singles players played well against experienced and talented seniors. Freshman Jack Stafstrom took his opponent to three sets at four singles.
The boys, 0-6, play home tomorrow (Wednesday 4/25) versus Simsbury and then Thursday back on the road to Wickham Park to play East Catholic.
