As of last Wednesday both the boys and girls teams were 6-1 on the season, and the start has been powerful. Currently, Dillon Bruso is the SWCL boys leader in the shot put while in SWCL girls, leaders include Abby Baer in the 600m, Sarah Cavanaugh in the 1000m and 2 mile, Andrea Bolduc in the 1 mile, and Jessica Pitman in the shot put.

Girls Coach Karyn Ferdella says her team is “well-rounded.” “I’m not sure if we’ve ever been this strong in so many different events. From throwing, to middle-distance/distance to sprinting, hurdling and jumping, we have so many amazing student-athletes.”

The girls’ only loss so far has been to power house Notre Dame, and that meet was less than five points, 45.330-40.660. Tonight’s meet is in Northbridge and Auburn will face Northbridge, Grafton and Woodstock.

Boys Coach Jason Bergman told Auburn Mass Daily, “They are learning the ropes as the season goes on. Our weakness is our inexperience, and the more we run the better we will get. The goal for the team is to be competitive in every meet we attend. I am proud of the effort these student athletes put in day in and day out. Some key contributors this year are Matt Healey, Tom Gannon, Dillon Bruso, Colin Gallaway and Scott Williams.

There is still some confusion over last week’s meet when Auburn lost to Tantasqua 49.5-36.5. They were scheduled to compete against Millbury, but published results still show a 83.0-2.0 victory over Hyde Prep, a school that is not on the Rockets’ schedule at all this year. Auburn defeated Millbury in similar fashion if the scores are examined.

The boys will also face Northbridge, Grafton and Woodstock tonight.
