Jake Connors and Jenny Fucillo, Winthrop’s star track performers, turned in superlative performances Saturday at the Division 4 State Track Meet to bring home second place ribbons in their specialties.

Both now will compete in the All-State Meet this Saturday afternoon at Westfield State College against the top 24 contestants from all schoolboy divisions.

Connors, who earlier this season set a new Winthrop High mark in the high jump with a leap of 6-6, jumped 6-4 to garner second place. The winning jump was 6-6.

"Jake did very well," said WHS head coach Pat McGee. "He seemed to have cleared his second try at 6-6 with plenty to spare, but his knee just caught the bar."

As for Fucillo, she sped to second in the 400 meter intermediate hurdles in a clocking of 67.06, just behind the winning time of 66.72. Fucillo also competed in the long jump and finished in 12th place among the field of 23 competitors with a landing of 15-0.

Other members of the Lady Viking track team who competed at the State Meet, for which participants must qualify, were: senior Cortney Nolan in the 100 meter dash in a time of 14.07; junior Christina Russo in the 200 meter dash in 27.96, placing her 10th in the field of 24; freshman Alyssa Mackey in the 200 dash in 29.30 and the long jump with a leap of 14-10, which placed her 14th in that event; freshman Jessica Dowson in the 400 hurdles in 76.93; and freshman Jordan Griffith in the mile in 5:58.37.

The girls’ 4 x 100 relay team also competed and finished in 12th place in a time of 52.94.

Viking junior Jordan Ekidat competed in two events, finishing in 13th spot in the long jump with a leap of 18-7.75 and in 12th place in the triple jump with a landing of 39-2.
