Milford Girls Track
Developing Depth
The Milford girls' track and field team has numerous athletes who are expected to compete for league championships, but the team success will hinge on the development of younger athletes who could be called on to score crucial points, head coach Derek Rose said.
"Our team is young, but they are talented young kids," Rose said. "We have 18 freshmen girls and 13 more sophomores and I don't know exactly how they will progress. The season will boil down to how much of an impact they make."
Milford has already seen some of its newer athletes shine, including sophomore Sydney Sutton who has the fastest time on the team in the 100 meters and the third fastest in the Hockomock League. Juniors Christina Speliakos and Leanne Kibbee have continued to shine. Speliakos qualified for states in the 110 meter hurdles and is just three-inches away from a school record in the long jump. She has also eclipsed her top mark in the triple jump by more than two feet, Rose said.
Kibbee has qualified for states in multiple events, bested her previous top triple jump by four feet, and set a new personal best in the long jump. Both juniors will play a big role in the 4x100 relay, Rose said.
The head coach has turned to younger athletes to help out in the throwing and field events after graduating a group of throwers last year. Sophomore Aaidaliz Perez has stepped into the long jump and javelin in her first full season practicing the events and shown marked improvement, Rose said, also noting her time in the 100-meter dash is the second fastest on the team.
Senior Elena Dellorusso has improved her time in the 400 meters, and fellow senior Christina Capone has also qualified for states in the quarter-mile. Freshman Kristina Chiarelli has shown promise in that event, running 65 seconds flat in her rookie year. Gabriela Chong, a junior, has stood out in multiple events as have freshman Audrey Cora and sophomore Ariana Covino, Rose said.
Similar to the boys, Rose expects Canton and North Attleboro to provide Milford's top competition in the league.
"They are stacked, but we are hoping to give them a battle," he said. "We want a winning record in the division and a finish in the top half of the Hock when we get to the league meet."
