Boston Globe: Newton North Gets to Wear Two Crowns

ANDOVER — It was a double win for Newton North as its boys’ and girls’ track teams swept the MIAA Division 1 championships Monday in Andover.

The Newton North girls placed in 11 of 18 events, combining for 65 points and earning them their fourth consecutive Division 1 title.

“Winning is our tradition, it’s part of our DNA,’’ said Tigers coach Joe Tranchita. “All year our focus has been to come out and just understand what we are capable of doing and not focusing on what the other teams are doing.

“It’s great to be in the hunt and we just got big-time help and picking up points in all the events. We had a lot of help from our younger members that jived well with our older members, and that’s what really made the difference.”
