Revere High head track coach Jack Mosko brought a large contingent of his underclassmen to the Northeastern Conference Freshman/Sophomore Meet Saturday at Lynn and the young Patriots did well, accumulating 53 points, good for first place in the NEC’s South Division and 5th place overall out of the league’s 12 teams.
Karim Sahila and Jeff Simbert came the closest to claiming an NEC F/S title, with both earning second places, Karim in the 400 meter dash in a time of 62.1 seconds (which was just .4 off the winning time) and Jeff with a shotput toss of 37-8.
Sahila also earned a ribbon (which is given to the top six finishers in each event) in the triple jump with a landing of 36-5.5, good for fourth place, as did Simbert, who sprinted to a fourth place finish in the 100 meter dash in 12.1.
Teammate Ricardo Maldonado also ribboned in two events, third in the 100 dash in 12.0 and fifth in the high jump with a leap of 5-2. Patriot Duad Farah likewise scored points for the Revere cause in two events, taking fifth in the long jump with a leap of 17-2 and fifth in the 200 meter dash in 25.1.
Other Revere boys who scored points were Alejandro Rojas with a fifth place effort in the discus with a toss of 74-4; Kristi Nushi with a sixth in the 800 in 2:13.2; Kyle Gotham with a fifth in the triple jump with a landing of 36-4; and Tarik Maddrey with a fourth in the high jump with a leap of 5-4.
In addition, the 4 x 100 relay team of Maldonado, Maddrey, Farah, and Simbert (Jeff being the only sophomore of the group and the other three being freshmen) brought home a second place ribbon with a time of 48.5.
