Girls Track Edged by Revere, 44-41

The Chelsea High girls indoor track and field team came oh-so-close to knocking off Greater Boston League opponent Revere last Wednesday, but fell short by the slim margin of 44-41.

Five Lady Red Devils won their individual events.

Chelsea swept the shot-put, led by Dhalia Christmas with a toss of 27’-9.5” and teammates Kiara Ramirez (26’-9.5”) and Lamari Davis (25’-5.25”).

The other first-place finishers for Chelsea were: Darily Sanchez, who sped to victory in the 300 meter dash in a clocking of 50.1 seconds; Giselle Olivar, who won the 600 dash with a time of 2:04.9; Gizelle Rodriguez, who outran the pack in the mile in 6:08.5, which was 27 seconds faster than her closest Revere rival; and Rosalinda Rojas, who captured the two-mile run in 15:27.8.

In the 1000 meter run, the duo of Hazel Hatleburg (3:47.6) and Reina Martino (4:05.3) went 2-3. and Reina Moreira grabbed second spot in the two-mile (16:14.2).

Chelsea won the 4 x 400 relay with the quartet of Rodriguez, Hatleburg, Sanchez, and Olivar topping their Lady Patriot counterparts by 11 seconds with a clocking of 4:50.3.

“We knew this one would be a single-digit outcome whether we won or lost,” said CHS head coach Cesar Herandez, whose team meets GBL foes Medford tomorrow (Friday) and Somerville on Monday. “We just couldn’t get those third place spots we needed to solidify the win.”

The GBL Meet is set for next Friday, Feb. 3, at the Reggie Lewis Center.

Flores Wins Mile for Boys vs. Revere

Alex Flores took home first place in the mile for the Chelsea High boys indoor track and field team in last Wednesday’s meet at Greater Boston League (GBL) opponent Revere.

Alex’s winning time of 5:22. was eight seconds faster than his closest Patriot rival.

Flores also ran the opening leg for the victorious 4 x 400 relay quartet. The other members of the relay were Ali Warsame, Austin Freeman, and Jose Olivar.

Other point-scorers for the Red Devils, who came out on the short end of 59-26 decision, were: Greandoll Oliva (35’-4”) and  Emerson Melgar (34’-2.75”) who went 2-3 in the shot-put; Warsame, who grabbed second in the 300 dash with a time of 43.0;  Freeman, who took second in the 600 in 1:42.1; Kyle Leong with a second-place in the 1000 in 3:35.4;

Sherwin Kim with a third in the mile in 5:47.2: and the duo of Josue Hernandez (12:30.1) and Ajay Singh (13:21.3) who went 2-3 in the two-mile run.

The Chelsea foursome of Flores, Warsame, Freeman, and Olivar captured the 4 x 400 with a clocking of 4:14.5, which was 4.5 seconds faster than their Revere counterparts.

Coach Cesar Hernandez and his crew will wrap up their dual meet indoor season this coming week when they take on GBL foes Medford tomorrow (Friday) and Somerville on Monday. The GBL championship meet is set for next Friday, February 3, at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston.

CHS Boys Basketball Hosts Everett Tonight

The Chelsea High boys basketball team will host Greater Boston League rival Everett this evening (Thursday) at the Chelsea High gymnasium. The opening tip is set for 6:00.

The Red Devils are coming off a pair of hard-fought losses to GBL foes Lynn Classical (48-45) and Somerville (55-49) this past week.

“Free throws are killing us,” said CHS head coach Cesar Castro. “We have to knock them down. We went 8-17 from the line against Classical and missed 10 free throws against Somerville. If we had hit our free throws, we would have won those games.”

After tonight’s encounter with Everett, Castro and his crew will hit the road for three games next week: to non-league rival East Boston on Monday, to GBL foe Malden on Tuesday, and to GBL archrival Revere next Thursday.
