Leatham

Preview: Chariho boys’ track


Head coach:

Bill Haberek (25th season).

Assistant coaches:

Keith Croteau, Nate Potter (volunteer).

Last year:

Chariho (7-2, 7-2 Southern Division) finshed second in the division meet and seventh in Class A.

Bryce Kelley wrapped up his distance running career for the Chargers by being named Providence Journal Honor Roll Boy of the Year, repeating as state champion in the 1,500, and earning first or second-team honors at the New England , state, class and division levels.

Returning to varsity:

Seniors:

Alden Andrea (captain), Andrew Sardelli (captain), Matt Drummond, Zach Gardell, Stephen Gencarelli, Kyle Kirby, Max Leatham, Nick LoPriore, Teal Migliaccio, Dan Urena, Alex Wojkowiak.

Juniors:

James Costigan (captain), Jung Kim (captain), Mitch Carrier, Nate Claire, Mark Coppa, Andrew Ferrigno, Nick Mead, Cam Richard, Matt Tierney.

Sophomore:

Mike Rainey.

New to varsity:

Juniors:

Pat Bowe, Phil Dineen, Kahekee Northup.

Sophomore:

J.T. Luckman.

Freshman:

Tom Costigan.

Outlook:

Haberek said the turnout of 52 was pretty typical and hopefully will yield “some diamonds in the rough.” The Chargers should again be solid in the distance events with Andrea, Carrier, Gencarelli, Kim and Sardelli scoring consistently. All-Class and All-Division Leatham should lead a strong group of hurdlers, with hope also for big things from Mead and La Salle transfer Bowe.

Gardell, LoPriore, Coppa and transfer student Dineen should score points in the sprints. Richards, Coppa and newcomer Northup should do likewise in the jumps. Urena and the Costigan brothers look promising in the throws.

Coach’s take:

“North Kingstown always is strong in our division. They made a run at the state title last year, were dominant in indoors this year and with 90 kids about doubled our turnout this year. I have every reason to believe they’ll be strong again this season. I hope that we can be as competitive as we can be in the Southern Division and know we have our work cut out for us. We also want to hold our own in Class A.”
