Milford Boys Track Eyes League Dual Meet Title


After sharing the Hockomock League's Davenport Division title over the winter, Milford High track coach Derek Rose said the boys' spring program could challenge for a dual meet crown during the outdoor season with depth and flexibility leading the way.
The Scarlet Hawks versatility starts with Joseph Madden, who Rose said has shown an ability to run pretty much any race on the track and field program.
"He can do so much, I've seen him goofing around during track camp and he will run the 100 and end up beating the sprinters," Rose said. "He could run our
fastest 200, but the mile, the two mile and the 800 will probably be his races."
Similarly, versatile is Hugo Lopes. Rose said Lopes would like to run the 100,
200 and 400, but track rules limiting the number of events one person can enter and the senior's strength in the relay events will require some strategic picking and choosing. Lopes will also compete in the javelin, Rose said.
Sean Lehane will excel in the sprinting events as well as some of the jumping events, his coach said. "He has really come around," Rose said. "I can see him being the leadoff for the 4x100 relay. He can long jump, he can triple jump, he is a talented kid."
Sam Borst is an experienced hurdler who has been working on that event since he was in middle school and Anthony DiStauro should be in line for a strong spring after an illness slowed him down a bit during the winter season.
"It's hard as a distance runner if you can't keep building on your endurance," Rose said. "So I think he is going to bounce back and have an awesome season."
Other athletes will help add depth for the Scarlet Hawks, both those who competed in indoor track and those coming to the spring team from other sports. Keithly Sutton brings additional skill to the sprinting events and Jordan Darling should be a key cog after playing basketball this
winter, Rose said.
Milford also welcomes a new coach into
the fold in 2019, though it's someone with whom the program and school are very familiar. Milford High Athletic Director Peter Boucher will work with Rose and the rest of the staff and serve as the boys' head coach.
Rose said field events could be the difference if the Scarlet Hawks are going to contend for the Hockomock crown.
"I think we have a chance at a dual meet title if our field events come through," he said. "Our throwing events are important, so hopefully we get some veterans and young guys who want to give it a try."
