Fellow Framingham graduate Ryan Maliewski, a captain this season, captured fifth place in the pentathlon and qualified for the all-state meet with 2,598 points.

“Ryan is easily the most positive, cheerful, motivated person you could hope to cross paths with,” said Coach Collins. “He makes everyone around him better; his energy for┬álife is contagious.”

“Ryan’s reliability is second to none, weather on a personal level or on a team performance need,” said Coach Collins. “From a track perspective — he is a pentathlete and a decathlete… he does it all and at a VERY high level. He is the walking example of how hard work pays off.”

Framingham High graduate Emmanuel Kibuuka took 7th place in the 400-meter event in 52.07 seconds. He also finished 12th in the triple jump with a leap of 38-feet, 11.5 inches.
