Pawlina Paces D-Y to a Perfect 7-0: Dolphins Win ACL Crown

ROXBURY — There’s a simple but true fact about the girls at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School: they sure can run.

The Dolphin girls picked up two huge wins Monday night at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center, and in so doing were crowned 2014-15 Atlantic Coast League Indoor Track champions. At a perfect 7-0, the Lady Dolphins defeated Falmouth, 75-25, to clinch the ACL title and Norwell, for a non-league win, 69.50-30-50.

Dolphin track star Madison Pawlina lived up to the hype and came through for the dolphins in brilliant fashion. The superlative runner took a pair of first-place finishes in the 300-meter dash with a time of 43.62 and the long jump with her distance of 15’11”. She tied for 7th place in the high jump with her finish of 4’5″. Fellow Dolphins’ star Sydney McCann took first place in the two-mile race to add to D-Y’s point total with her time of 12:36.16.

McCann edged out Sandwich’s Amelia McCartney (2nd place/13:04.10) and Falmouth’s Caroline Cobb (13:15.13) for the first-place finish. Pawlina edged out Nauset’s Mackenzie Meads who took second place in the 300.

Olivia Miller and Katie Holmes provided the Dolphins with a one-two punch in the women’s 55-meter hurdles, finishing in second and third place, respectively. Miller took second with her time of 9.66 and Holmes came right behind her in third place at 9.82. Jackie Hovey took a fifth place finish at 10.31.

The Dolphins’ Carly Coughlin turned in a critical second place finish in the one-mile run with her time of 5:41.85, coming in just behind Nauset’s one-mile champion, Coralea Geraniotis who finished at 5:27.07.
