Redmen Roundup: Girls Track Sets Several Personal Records At Invitational

Quigley, Davies, Eatherton shine for Tewksbury.

Massachusetts State Track Coaches Association Invitational

Several members of the Tewksbury High girls track team posted personal bests as they competed in the Massachusetts State Track Coaches Association Invitational over the weekend.

Kelley Quigley posted a personal best in the long jump (15-4.25), as did Rebecca Davies in the 1000 (3:15.14).

"You get a real sense for the natural ability of a kid by how well they can long jump," said Coach Peter Molloy. "Before this season Kelley never really did it.  She's had exactly two meets to give it a go and zero opportunities to practice it!  Fact of the matter is with very little experience Kelley has put her self in position to be a top five hurdler, top three 300m runner, and a top five long jumper! That's really impressive!"

"Becca Davies really put it together today," said Molloy. "At this meet last year she ran 3:22, so a seven-second PR is obviously good.  But it was the way she approached the race that gets my praise. She just went after it.  She had this determined focused look on her face all day.  I'm thrilled for her!"

Rachel Eatherton also seta personal record in the mile (5:37.40) and qualified for the State Championships in the process.

"Rachel went after it with a similar determination to Becca," said Molloy. "It's really fun watching Rachel run, you can really see the determination and focus she brings to each race. She is a true competitor and it's a lot of fun coaching her!"
