FHS Stars Bring Home Gold
FITCHBURG — The Fitchburg High girls’ outdoor track and field team might not have had the numbers to bring in team hardware during the dual meet season, but the Red Raiders sure do have an abundance of high-end talent.
Saturday at the Central/Western Mass. Division 1 Track and Field Championship, four local athletes took home gold medals. It was the Fitchburg girls who snatched two of them, as Wonuola Ashaju won the triple jump and Olamide Bamgbose secured the long jump at Fitchburg State University’s Elliot Field Athletic Complex.
The Nashoba girls tallied the highest team score among local schools with a ninth-place finish with 36 points. Fitchburg finished 10th with 30 points, North Middlesex took 13th with 24.5 points, and Leominster finished 25th with 3 points.
