Top Events to Watch At Andover Boosters Invitational (Live Results)

In its 67-year history, the Andover Boosters Invitational has had its share of top performances. Want proof? Take a look the impressive records that have been set at the annual meet over the last six-plus decades. On Saturday, we’re expecting more than a few of those marks to be erased with the quality of competition that has entered

Here we list what we consider some of the best events to watch.


Girls’ 800

In last year’s meet, Newton South’s Amelia Everett set the current meet record of 2 minutes, 10.70. Brookline’s Camille Jordan was second with a time of 2:12.58. Everett will not defend her title this year, opting instead to run the mile. Jordan will be back and could challenge the one-year-old mark. She’s already ahead of last year’s schedule as evident by her third-place finish and PR of 4:56.61 from the BSR Elite Scholastic Mile last Friday . The Warriors’ senior has a PR of 2:11.65 from the New Balance Nationals last spring. She’s ready to get in the 2:10 range, and possibly faster.

Girls’ Mile

The record here is 4:53.34 by former Needham great Margie Cullen in 2016. This is a mark we can almost guarantee will go down this weekend. The individual we expect to do it is the Lions’ Everett. At the BSR Mile, the Stanford signee clocked her all-time best of 4:47.49 in a race she essentially ran solo the second half. With an all-out effort, we feel Everett is capable of a time in the low-to-mid 4:40 range. With the Meet of Champions, the Brooks PR Invitational and one of two nationals meets still on her schedule, we don’t expect she’ll go all out this weekend. Everett will run just enough to break another record at Andover

Boys’ 200m

Six runners in this event have seeds faster than 22.5, Newton South’s Will Truncer (22.17) and Haverhill’s Nataenel Vigo Catala (22.20), are ranked No 1 and No. 2. Vigo-Catala is coming off a big win at the Weston Twilight Invitational where he ran 48.1 for 400m. During the winter, he went 47.6 at the adidas Indoor Nationals. He also has a best of 34.37 for the 300m. With times like those, he’s capable of going sub-22 for the half-lapper and near the MR of 21.90. Don’t count out Truncer too.

Boys’ 4x800m

During the winter, Brookline had the top time in the state with a best of 7:54.36 from their runner-up finish at the New England Championships. The meet record here is 8:06.83 by North Andover in 2015. The No. 2 seed is Newton South with a time of 8:15. The Warriors will have competition to push them, at least the first two or three legs. Thus, the MR has a very good possibility of getting erased this weekend.
