After a disappointing finish in last year’s divisional meet, Harry Smith had something to prove Wednesday night at the Reggie Lewis Center.

The Old Rochester senior blew by the competition to win the 55-meter hurdles with a personal-best 7.69 in the Div. 4 Track and Field Championships.

“He just didn’t run as well last year, but he stepped up this time,” said Old Rochester coach Cindy Tilden of Smith, who came in 11th in the event in last year’s Div. 5 meet. “He looked great. He felt great. He said he felt really smooth.

“It was fast. It was a fast heat. He had some guys push him.He was excited.”

Smith will compete next Saturday at All-States.

Teammate Adam Sylvia also had a personal-best in the mile to place fourth (4:31.04). Madison Martin was fifth in the 1,000 (3:07.13) and Lea Bourgeois came in fourth in the 55 (7.50).

The Bulldogs enjoyed a successful night in the relays.

The boys 4x200 team of Will Garcia, Harry Smith, Anthony Childs and Marcus Rita placed fifth (1:35.33).

The girls 4x200 relay team of Rachel Demmer, Ava Ciffolillo, Maya Doonan and Bourgeois took fifth (1:50.60) while the 4x400 team of Rachael Santoni, Doonan, Martin and Bourgeois was fourth (4:14.90).

The big surprise of the meet was the girls’ 4x800 relay team that entered as the No. 17 seed and ended up finishing sixth (10:20.60) thanks to the running of Emma Carroll, Sam Ball, Sydney Green and Caroline Murphy”

“I was excited about the relays, especially the 4x800,” said Tilden, noting the team dropped 24 seconds. “They did a fantastic job. They were excited.”

Since the top three seed automatically qualify and the next best nine among the five divisions advance to All-States, the Bulldogs must wait to see if anyone will join Smith next weekend.

“Those are good times, but we have to see if they’re good enough,” Tilden said.
