Boys’ outdoor track

Terwilliger, a senior distance runner, won three events at the Class A outdoor track and field championships — the 800 meters, 1,600 and 3,200 — but also established himself as one of the state’s most consistent runners, benefiting from a training and competition regimen designed by Cheverus Coach Steve Virgilio that emphasized a reasonable amount of mileage and cross-training.

Terwilliger finished fourth at the Class A cross country championships, despite missing the bulk of the season because of iliotibial band syndrome, and won Class A indoor titles in the 1,600 and 3,200. He will attend Dartmouth this fall.


Girls’ outdoor track

O’Brien, a senior, had a hand in 38 points to help the Traip Academy girls’ track team win its first Class C state championship since 1994. O’Brien won two events, the 100-meter hurdles and the long jump. She finished second in the triple jump and ran a leg of the Rangers’ state championship 400 relay. O’Brien also won Class B indoor championships in the 55 hurdles and was one of two athletes to best the previous Class B indoor record in the long jump.
