Boys Track Members Compete at Nationals

Thanks to Mr. Carr for the update on the Five members of the boys track team who spent the weekend in North Carolina at the New Balance Nationals Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

In the three events they contested, they set three school records and earned two All-American awards for top six finishes.

Running at almost 10pm on Friday night, Paul Hogan was fourth in the 5000 meters at 14:31.41.

Tim Sunnerberg was third in the mile race walk at 7:38.16.

The Distance Medley Relay team of Matt Ackerman (1200 meters), Eric Salina (400 meters), Colin Raposo (800 meters) and Paul Hogan (1600 meters) clocked a 10:09.71, good enough for ninth at the meet and fourth on the Massachusetts all-time rankings.

Gabriel Arcaro places 7th in the Boys Hammer Throw with a toss of 202' 7",

2014 Junior Book Awards

Burlington High School held its annual Junior Book Awards ceremony on June 13th. This ceremony celebrates excellence in academics, leadership, service, and personal character – and these attributes are reinforced in almost every individual award's criteria.  the young men and women recognized at the book awards were selected by a faculty committee for their accomplishments and their contributions not only at BHS but to the local community as well. Congratulations to all the recipients on what I am sure will be the first of many recognitions - all the students should be proud.
