Great job to all of the Western Mass cross country runners with a great race Saturday in difficult weather conditions.
Congrats to Abby Laughlin, who qualified for the state XC race.
I like Mike's chances to get those 2 yards to take the #2 spot of all time in rushing in Massachusetts in his last game.
Wow. Ronda Rousey got knocked out. It was a kick to the head. Hate when that happens.
Another win for the Pats, and a heartbreaking loss for the Giants, who had plenty of chances to win the game. You can't give Tom Brady 1:47 and expect to hang on to a 2 point lead.
Another win for the Panthers too.
It's unusual to see Fairfield playing UNC in college basketball.
Peyton Manning had an eventful day yesterday breaking the NFL passing record and getting benched after throwing 4 picks.
The girls varsity soccer season ended sooner than hoped, but congrats to them on a solid season.
STANLEY PARK, WESTFIELD
In the final team race of this season, the Lady Spartan Cross Country team finished 10th in one of the most challenging fields in Western Mass history and despite a key injury to the number five runner during the race.
The season does however continue onto the All-State Championships as Abby Laughlin became the second fastest East Longmeadow Harrier of all time at Stanley Park surpassing Meredith McGowan and finishing only three seconds behind future Hall of Famer, Lauren Litscher (the ONLY EL runner to ever actually WIN Western Mass.)
Abby's 15th place finish also earned her an MIAA medallion!
The other half of the “Abby Connection”: Abby Rate finished 29th while also running the fastest time in her career by 18 seconds.
This season's Girls Cross Country team worked harder than any other team in school history. It earned them their first ever League Championship as well as the Ted Dutkiewicz Memorial Races title back in September.
Going back to the All-States is simply the icing on the cake and something planned upon back in August at the Pizza Shoppe.
It was a cold and blustery day today at Stanley Park, the site of the 2015 Western Mass Cross Country Meet. The EL Spartans ran well despite the cold. While more details will follow, one thing we know for sure is Abby Laughlin took 15th place and qualified for the state meet.
A quick story that has nothing to do with EL kids, but about 2/3 of the way through the Division 1 girls race, a runner tripped and fell on the trail. The girl behind her from another school, stopped, helped her up, and they ran off together. That was pretty impressive, and indicative of the types of kids you find running XC.
