ConVal track stars Clare Veverka and Evan Coyne both competed at the New Englands Interscholastic Indoor Championships at the Reggie Lewis Track & Athletic Center in Boston on Saturday.

Veverka ran the two-mile run after finishing fourth in the 3,000M during February’s Division II championships. Against the best in New England, the junior finished 12th in 11:18.72. Veverka was the third finisher from New Hampshire, behind Manchester West junior Julia Robitaille (third, 10:50.18) and Exeter senior Jacqueline Gaughan, who won the event in 10:09.20, breaking the 40-year-old New England record by one second in the process.

Coyne raced in the 1,000M, where he’d been second in Division II at the New Hampshire meet. Here, he finished 19th in 2:41.57, just behind Concord senior Matt O’Brien.
