Senior shot-putter Ny'Cole Young-Thomas was overjoyed Tuesday with her personal best throw that qualified her to compete in the state track and field meet.
The Big Blue girls track and field team defeated Gloucester April 30 at Upper Jackson, 85-51. But one of the victories within the victory was a senior's shot put throw of 30 feet 10 inches. That throw brought senior Ny'Cole Young-Thomas to her knees in elation and to tears in teammates' arms. Coach Peter Bush said Ny'Cole's eclipsing the 30 feet mark qualifies her for the state track meet. Not only that but the throw broke the barrier she has been trying to break since last year. She set the 30-foot mark as a goal for winter track and fell short. She set it again for spring, but was stuck in the 28-foot range. But on Tuesday her hard work got her past the mark, and now that she has surpassed it and gained confidence, there is no telling …

The girls are now 1-1 on the season.
This article was submitted by the girls coach Joe Tenney. The weather at the start of the meet seemed like an actually spring season meet however as time got later the sun faded and the chill came back. Although the Swampscott girls came up with a little heat of their own and rounded off their record to 1-1 on the young season. We had some really good times but we have plenty of room for improvement. With what seems like better weather ahead of us I think we can really start to see some improved times, and field event distances and heights start to improve as well. We have plenty of bright spots and some great leadership with our veterans so I am really looking forward to what May/June brings us. With each meet we have a better look on…
