RHS Track Team Defeats Danvers, 54-30

The Revere High boys track team improved to 2-0 on the season with a 53-31 triumph over Danvers last week. Coach Jack Mosko’s Patriots captured six of the nine individual events and also took the relay to cruise to the victory.

Winning their individual events were Vin DiChiara in the high jump with a leap of 5-2; Robert Rose in the 1000 in a time of 3:06.9; Joey Richie in the 50 yard dash in 6.1 (which led a sweep of that event for Revere); Breni Guzman in the 300 in 40.8; Michael Fitzpatrick in the 600 in 1:31.9; and Brahim Rahzi in the mile in 5:10.

The 4 x 400 relay quartet of Fitzpatrick, Leo Giraldo, Guzman, and Rahzi conquered their Danvers rivals with a time of 4:01.2, which was 5.7 seconds faster than the Danvers foursome.

The Patriots also showed their depth with five second place finishes: Devin Colon in the high jump with a jump of 5-0; Vito Licata in the shotput with a toss of 41-1; DiChiara in the 50 yard hurdles in 8.0; Colon in the 50 yard dash in 6.1; and Ernesto Bonilla in the two mile in 11:21.2.

Adding single points to the Revere scoresheet for third place efforts were Paul Rizzo in the 50 yard hurdles in 8.1; Giraldo in the 50 dash in 6.2; and Zack Primo in the 300 in 42.8.

“Robert Rose ran an awesome race in the 1000 with a personal record (PR) of 3:07 in only his second time running an organized race,” said Mosko. “Mike Fitzpatrick also turned in another PR, while Joe Richie earned his first ribbon for our team with his first place in the dash.

“Vito Licata threw a PR of over 41 feet in the shot and Breny Guzman is turning in the strongest 300 meter times in the league and is tied for the team lead in points with 11.25 after two meets,” added Mosko.

Mosko and his crew were set to face Winthrop yesterday (Tuesday).
