Lumberjack track and field

The roster:

The Lumberjacks boys track and field roster will include seniors Randy Charland. Bryan Geiger, Jeffrey Hurteau and Chad Williams, along with sophomore Blair Boyer and freshmen Grayson Klossner, Cameron LaMare, Daniel Shaheen and Jason Wood.

The Lady Lumberjacks will include senior Kristin Bickford; juniors Hannah Klossner and Samantha Ormsby; sophomores Nicole Charland and Mikayla Nixon; freshmen Ashleigh Boyea, Emily Godin, Klarisa Hoyt and Lindsey Maroun; eighth graders Devon Beaudette and Miranda Vaillancourt; and seventh grader Tess Klossner.

What the coach says:

“The Tupper boys’ team has grown since last year. We have a good group this year that is still a little shy on numbers but not in variety. The boys can cover most events but we will obviously be focusing on individual success rather than team results. Our strengths will be in the hurdles, sprints and middle distance events.

“One of the boys to watch will be senior co-captain Bryan Geiger. He is a pentathlete and a potential in the steeplechase. He excels in the 110 hurdles and 1500m. His other events are improving greatly so we expect to see him in a variety of events during the dual meet season. We are also welcoming back seniors Randy Charland (co-captain), Chad Williams and Sophomore Blair Boyer. Newcomers include Jeff Hurteau (12), Grayson Klossner (9), Cameron LaMare (9), DJ Shaheen (9), and Jason Wood (9). We won’t measure success by the league record because of our lack of depth to fill six scoring places in dual meets. Our focus for success will be measured by personal improvement and reaching our peak for sectionals and states.
