Eve Bishop's senior season just continues to get better.
The Cornell recruit shattered the school record in the 300, won the long jump and ran the opening leg of the record-setting 4x400 as Andover edged archrival Central Catholic 104-101 in the Merrimack Valley Conference Meet on Friday.
Bishop's 40.39 in the 300 broke former Andover great Barbara Cullinan's 28-year-old school mark and the meet record, and she then scored a win in the long jump with a 16-7. She also teamed with Alli Puccia, Jaclyn Torres and Sydney Eberth to take the 4x400 in 4:01.44.
"She's one of the top sprinters ever from Andover," said coach Peter Comeau, whose Golden Warriors repeated as MVC Meet champions. "She already has the 200 record (last spring) and we've had some great sprinters. She's a great athlete. She never long jumps and we asked her to do it this week and she won it."
Maggie Mullens continued her assault on the record books with an 11:09.58 in the mile, breaking the meet record set by Wilmington's Mary McNaughton set in 1983.
Emily Belluche added a win in the 55 hurdles (8.87), Moira Cronin set a meet record in the high jump (5-6), with Jess Salley placing second, and Chelsea Angelosanto, Emily Shields, Cronin and Michaela Soucy won the 4x200.
Relays dominate for boys
Andover continued its tradition of dominating the relays, taking first in all three events as the Golden Warriors fell just short and took second at the Merrimack Valley Conference Meet on Friday with 79 points. Lowell took first with 89 points.
"Winning all three relays, that's pretty darn cool," said Comeau.
Pat Farnham, Troy Cayon, Adam Carrington and Cole Organisciak won the 4x200 (1:32.51), Cayon, Paul Sokol, Ryan Cooney and Brian Knapp teamed to take the 4x400 (3:32.69) and Mike Maldari, Ryan Beaumont, Will Ossoff and Simon Voorhees won the 4x800 (8:18.15).
Farnham also set a meet and school record in the 300 (35.75) and Voorhees set a new meet mark in the 2-mile (9:33.12). Ossoff (mile) and Knapp (600) added third-place finishes.
