Ned Wins South Shore League Meet and Completes Undefeated Season


Joseph Carroll, Writer



On Wednesday’s South Shore League Championships a lot of quality runners gave it their all over the 5k distance. On the team side for the boys, the race was a close contest between two potential Allstate qualifiers, Norwell and Cohasset, with Norwell edging Cohasset 35-41. Individually, the race was a runaway for Cohasset’s Ned Farrington who won in 16:20 in a controlled effort and completed his undefeated season vs. South Shore League Opponents. The effort was one that he ran alone after a mile or so in the race. Behind him was a tight pack that fought for the top 5 positions with Norwell’s Augustine Smith (17:03) and Kyle Anderson (17:07) coming in second and third. Close behind was Cohasset’s Joseph Carroll (17:11) and East Bridgewater’s Kevin McBirney (17:12) rounding out the top 5. The rest of the Allstars were the following finishers: 6. Graham White (Norwell 17:23), 7. Paul Giovanoni (Middleboro 17:28), 8. Jimmy Grech (Cohasset 17:30), 9. Cameron Curney (Abington 18:02), 10. Burke Mattey (Cohasset 18:06), 11. Christian Hudanich (Norwell 18:10), 12. Adam Montross (Middleboro 18:11), 13. Ryan Martin (Norwell 18:17), 14. Adam Izahk (Randolph 18:25), 15. Aidan Seguin (Norwell 18:26).
