The Revere High boys indoor track team flew past former GBL rival Everett 58.5-30.5 last Monday afternoon.
Leading the way for Coach Jack Moscoâ€™s squad was senior Souhil Arachiche, who sped to victory in the 50 yard dash in 6.0 second; took second in the high jump with a leap of 5-4; and ran a leg on the winning 4 x 400 relay team. Altogether, Souhil accounted for 9.25 points on the Revere score sheet.
Other first place finishers for the Patriots were Ariel Pineda in the 50 yard hurdles in 8.2, a personal record (PR), that led a Revere sweep in that event; Chris Panzini in the 1000 in 2:45.9; Bobby Driscoll in the mile, which was another sweep for Revere; and Ernesto Bonilla in the two mile in 12:15.9.
The 4 x 400 relay quartet of Brahim Rhazi, John Rich, Arachiche, and Breny Guzman also were victorious in a time of 4:05.
Second place efforts were turned in by Andres Herrera in the hurdles in a PR time of 8.3; Rhazi in the 300 in 37.6; Melvin Mancia in the 600 in 1:30.7; Francesco Tartaglia in the 1000 in 1:46.3; Nick DeMarco in the mile; and Brian Collins in the two mile in 12:22.2.

Three days later Mosko and company took on NEC foe Beverly. Though the Pats came out on the short end of a 49-32 decision, a number of Revere boys turned in fine performances.
Licata won the shotput with a new PR heave of 38-6.5; Arachiche took the 50 yard dash in 6.0; and Rahzi won the mile in a sub five minute time of 4:57.6.

Rich took second in the 300 in 38.1 and Panzini finished second in the 1000 in 2:45.3.
Third place finishers were Tartaglia in the 600, DeMarco in the 1000, Bob Driscoll in the mile; Diego Mancia in the 300; Guzman in the hurdles; and DiChiara in the high jump.
