NORWELL, Mass. — The high school track season came to a close on Saturday at the New England Interscholastic Track and Field Championships, held at Norwell High School in Norwell, Mass.

Kennett, Kingswood and Newfound were all represented in the competition.

The top finisher on the day was Kennett senior Noah Lautenschlager, who ran to a time of 22.89 in the 200 meters, which placed him in 15th place overall.

Kennett teammate Selena Gauthier, who is graduating early this year after her junior season, finished in 23rd in the 100 meters in 13.03 seconds.

The Kingswood 4X800meter relay team of Owen Gwizdala, Brent Coope, Brodie Deshaies and Wyatt Pooler ran to a time of 8:21.45 to take 19th overall. The team is the Division II champions, with Pooler and Coope both set to return to the track next season.
