Silvestri also made the Division II-Sullivan third team in the 4x200 relay with sophomore Cameron Fournier, junior Arin Demers and freshman Gabrielle Harris.
“We could always rely on Delaney in the sprints, middle distances and relays,” Allen said.
As a sophomore, Silvestri was Division I-Headley third team in the 300 in 43.6 and as a junior she was Division II-Sullivan second team in the 55-meter dash. Her injuries forced her to miss the 2013 state meet.
Silvestri also earned Academic All-State honors along with teammate Alexis Marsella, a high jumper and relay runner. Academic All-State selections must be members of the National Honor Society and at least a three-year track participant who are seniors.

As a sophomore Baker was Sullivan second team on the 4x800 relay.
