New Balance Nationals Wrap-Up


Massachusetts ' athletes certainly made their presence known at the New Balance Nationals Outdoor Championships in North Carolina. North Andover's Erick Duffy came up with the performance of his life by winning the pole vault with a six-inch personal best  and New England record of 17-1.

Sophomore Ryan Oosting of Arlington, who already was making some noise this year as a gifted underclassmen, put himself front and center on the national radar with his starling victory in the 5,000-meter run where he clocked a PB of 14:36.13, a time that ranks among the all-time best times recorded by a tenth-grader in the country. Oosting also earned All-American honors in the two mile where he placed second overall.

Needham's Davonte Burnett turned in one of the Bay State all-time best performances in the sprint events, taking seventh in both the 100m and 200m dashes. 

Sam Welsh of Concord Academy (fifth, boys' discus), Burlington's Fernando Lamin (fifth, boys' high jump), Dracut's Erin McMeniman (third, girls' discus), Marshfield (sixth, boys' DMR), Natick and Milton (second and fifth, girls' DMR) were among others making it the podium at NBNO.
