Milford Boys Track Eyes League Title

The first half of the Milford High School boys track schedule has put the Hawks in prime position to win a Hockomock League title, and that's a goal squarely on the mind of head coach Tim Cullen. "We want to win the league," he said. "We have beaten some strong teams and have some strong teams left on our schedule, but I think we match up well and our fate is in our hands."
Milford opened the season with an 87-49 win over Canton and followed that up with an 85-81 victory over Foxboro and an 82-53 over Stoughton. "Those were some solid teams and we did well," Cullen said. "Our sprinting and jumping corps is made up of a good group of kids."
Senior Brian Kibbee set a school record in the long jump with a leap of 22'5". His jump is the top mark in the state this year by more than a foot. He suffered a minor leg injury that set back some of his record marks, but Cullen expects him to be back to full strength as the season progresses. Fellow senior Shawn Arquillano has stood out in a number of events, including the 100-yard dash, the long jump, the triple jump, and as a member of the 4x100 relay team.
Senior Andre Luciano has also burst onto the team in his first year competing in spring track, running one of the top five times in the Hockomock League in the 200. In a similar fashion, Leo Moronta was asked to fill in for the low hurdles and ran the event in under a minute. He has also scored in both the long and triple jumps.
In addition to the runners and jumpers, Milford has gotten a lift from its throwers. Eric Borgioli is up over 120 feet in the discus. Sebastian Moronta and Sean Burns have also helped contribute to a pair of sweeps in the discus and have provided significant contributions in the shot.
Perhaps the biggest reason for the Scarlet Hawks' first three victories and its spot in the league standings, depth. "Overall, the numbers are up and that's been a real help," Cullen said. "We have always had good athletes, just fewer of them. This season we have upwards of 70 kids and we don't have to overwork our top guys because we have so much depth. We are able to keep them fresh."
The depth has also allowed Cullen to mix and match with his relay teams thanks to having half a dozen different athletes who can run quality times. Milford is hoping that depth can ultimately produce the first league title for the boys' track program in two decades.
"Milford has not won the league since the mid 1990s," Cullen said. "Our next couple of meets are going to give us a good idea of where we stand. We also have some kids who are going to be competitive in the individual meets and should be qualifying for states, which is always nice to see."
