  • 1 mile -  Aaron Lucci 4:47  (personal best)
  • 2 mile - James Bridges  10:43

Other notable performances were Marc Bucchieri with personal best of 2:46 in the 1000 and Jared Geller with a personal best in the 2 mile 10:58, and Jesse Cardoza in the shot put 39'11".

Girls Track
Jessica Duffy threw a bomb in the shot put with a distance of 37'3" good for a tie for the farthest throw in Massachusetts to date.

Other girls with great performances were Patty Malone in the 55 meter dash, Thyra Root in the 300, Jess Treacy in the 600, Emily Hammond in the 1000, Kelly Ledoux-Walsh in the mile, and Melanie Miksis in the 2 mile.
