BVT Girls Track Aims for League Title
The Blackstone Valley Tech girls' lacrosse team has its sights set on a Colonial Athletic League title this spring, a feat well within reach of the Beavers after a 2-1 start in the dual meet slate.
"I think if things click, we have a really good shot at winning the CAL and winning the state vocational meet," said head coach Barry Coonan. "We have a lot of depth. I don't think there are many schools out there that can put together a 4x100, 4x400, and 4x800 team and still do well."
Like the boys, the girls feature around 65 athletes on the roster this year. The Beavers have an ability to pick up points in all three places, which helped in wins over Keefe Tech and Bay Path already this spring. BVT lost one meet to a deep and talented squad from Advanced Math and Science Academy.
Several athletes have already stood out for Valley Tech. Mary Martocci has the squad's top time in the low hurdles and figures to be a regular point scorer in the high hurdle event as well. Nikayla Dube and Alana Johnson have both stood out in the 400-meter run. Dube is also running well in the 200, Coonan said.
In the field events, Isabelle Angelini has thrown more than 110-feet in the javelin.
Her top throw was good enough to set a new program record, and it's the best throw by a BVT javelin thrower, of either gender, through the first three meets.
Haley Vecchione has also made her mark in the throwing events, earning a first-place finish with a 76-foot heave in the Beavers' last meet.
Freshman Kat Kloczkowski has a win under her belt in the shot put and has also shown promise in the javelin, while Lauren Flynn has put together strong times in both the mile and the two mile.
"We have a good group of freshmen who are coming right along," Coonan said, "they are right there in every event."
The number of strong athletes on the roster should put Valley Tech in a position to compete with everyone else in the area, Coonan said.
"I think we have people who can win events and score big points," he said.
