WESTERLY — Four Westerly High runners earned second-team All-State honors on the 4x800 relay team this season.

Ryan Holloway, Matthew Walker, Jonathan Turano and John Walker combined for the second-place finish at the state meet.

Holloway, a senior, was first-team All-Class B in the 800. He also ran on the winning 4x800 and 4x400 relay teams at the Class B meet to earn first-team honors.

Others on the Class B 4x800 relay team were Turano, John Walker and Sam Lutzel. The other three runners on the Class B 4x400 team were Zach Menard, Aaron Tallardy and Rocco Cillino.

Matthew Walker, who will continue his running career at the University of New Hampshire, was second-team Class B in the 3,000 and third team in the 1,500. He was first-team Southern Division in the 3,000.

Holloway, Menard, Tallardy and Cillino were also second-team Southern Division in the 4x400 relay.
