Over the weekend in the Div. 3 relays at the TRACK at New Balance, he won the individual title in the high jump, with another record leap, and finished second in the long jump.

Shultz dominated the meet against Milford. He won the 55-meter dash with a league-best sprint of 6.69 and the followed that with a Hock-best high jump of 6-06.00. Shultz continued to set the pace in the league in the long jump, hitting 22-05.75 to win the title. On Sunday, he capped an impressive week by setting a new school and meet record with a high jump of 6-07.00, winning the team title for North in the process. After missing one attempt at 6-05.00, Shultz hit that height and added two more inches on his last attempt of the day. He jumped six inches higher than teammate Carson Crump, who took second. in addition, Shultz took second in the long jump, with a distance of 21-02.75.

Mansfield’s Wall, Milford’s Simas Shine At All-States

BOSTON, Mass. – After dominating the Hockomock League all season long, Mansfield’s Jake Wall and Milford’s Kiyanni Simas put on a show for the entire state to see.

Simas took first place in two events at the MIAA’s “Meet of Champions,” winning both the 55M dash and the long jump. The Scarlet Hawk junior was the only person, male or female, to win a pair of events at the All-State meet. She also won both events at the Hockomock League Championship meet in the beginning of the month and again at the MIAA Division 2 meet a week ago.

In the 55M prelims, Simas set a new PR with the top time of 7.21. In the finals, she tied that same time to win the all-state title, edging out Wellesley freshman Annie Comella (7.28) and Wellesley junior Abigail Lothian (7.29). Over at the long jump, Simas continued her dominance by landing a leap of 19-00.75, almost a foot longer than the second place jump from Westford Academy senior Megan Frazee (18-02.75).

On the boys side, Wall smashed his own personal record and set a new All-State meet record on his way to winning the long jump. The University of Michigan-commit landed at 23-10.25 to set the new mark, which was incredibly almost two feet more than the second place finish from Hingham’s Avery Warshaw (22-00.00). Wall, who consistently won three events (55M dash and 55M hurdles) throughout the dual meet season and at the Hockomock Championship meet, has the top mark in all of New England in the long jump this season. Wall also competed in the 5MM hurdles and took third overall with a PR time of 7.55.

Eight Hockomock schools were represented at the “Meet of Champions” at the Reggie Lewis Center over the weekend and there were a handful of other impressive results. Oliver Ames sophomore Katie Sobieraj continued to shine in distance runs, this time placing third in the 1 Mile with a PR time of 5:04.47. Taunton junior Caelen O’Leary had the other top five finish for the girls, clocking in with a PR time of 1:37.48 to take fourth in the 600M race.

Beyond Wall’s two top five finishes, there were three other Hock boys that made it in the top group. Oliver Ames junior Ryan Sarney set a new personal best time with a fifth-place finish in the 2 Mile (9:23.76), North Attleboro’s Brodie Clemente had a fifth-place toss of 49-09.75 in the shot put, and fellow Rocketeer Nathan Shultz was fourth in the high jump as the junior recorded a leap of 6-02.00.

Injury Leads Canton’s Link On a Path to the Big XII

Josh PerryFollowJoshPerry


It is nearly impossible to know where a change of circumstances may lead. For instance, how could you know that an unexpectedly lengthy injury would be the impetus for a freshman sprinter at Merrimack to try out the hammer throw and three years later be placing her name on the all-time leaderboard at Baylor?

Canton grad Hannah Link had a frustrating start to her collegiate career, but tried something different almost on a whim, found a new event that she loved, and it has carried her all the way to the Big XII and competing against some of the country’s best athletes.

“If you told me my freshman year of college at Merrimack this is where I’d be, I would literally tell you to shut up,” Link said when asked to reflect on the journey that took her from North Andover to Waco. “When I first walked on Baylor’s campus, I was like why am I here right now, this is so crazy. I am still kind of shocked that it ended up this way but I couldn’t be happier.”

She added, “It shows that literally everything happens for a reason. It’s crazy. Life throws you curveballs and in the moment you don’t know why it happened but then a couple years later you’re like I’m literally the happiest I’ve ever been and now it makes sense.”

Link is not only a part of the Baylor team, but she stepped up in her first meet of the indoor season and set a personal best in the weight, the indoor equivalent of the hammer throw. In her first appearance for the Bears, at the Corky Classic, Link recorded a throw of 56-6, which was good for fifth place and put her in fourth place all-time among weight throwers at Baylor.

Link explained, “I was honestly just a little bit terrified because I was around all these incredible throwers who have been doing this for years and years and here I am, kind of still new to the sport, and I’m trying to compete with them. But then on my last throw, I popped one.

“It was a pretty cool moment and it showed me, ‘Hey, you can do this.’”

At Canton, Link was all about speed. She was a forward on the soccer team and a sprinter in indoor and outdoor track. She was recruited to Merrimack to run the 200 and 400 meters, but before her career really got going, she suffered a foot injury that left her in a boot for far longer than she anticipated. Even after the boot was removed, Link struggled to get back to her top sprinting shape.

For fun and to stay active during her recovery, Link decided to give throwing a shot. “I explored a couple of throwing events,” she said, “and it really was for fun more than anything because I always thought I was going to get back into sprinting.” What started as fun became a passion and, after a season was wiped out because of COVID, Link started training more seriously, meeting with friends that she knew on Long Island and working on her form every day. After graduating a year early from Merrimack and with an extra year of eligibility from the COVID season, she explored new places to compete.

With help from Merrimack coach Mark Connolly, Link got in contact with the coaches at Baylor. Not only was Baylor a top track program, but it also had a strong business school for Link to get her MBA (with the exact concentration, entrepreneurship, that she was looking for), and also, Link admitted with a laugh, avoided the New England winters.

“It just kind of checked all the boxes, which is why it was the only place I applied to,” Link said. She also thanked her coaches at Merrimack for helping make this opportunity a reality. “They were super helpful and they always check up on me just to see how things are going,” she said. “We definitely stay in touch. I still have this Merrimack bumper sticker on my car because I can’t forget where I came from.”

From the outside, it doesn’t appear that there would be a lot of transferable skills from sprinting to throwing, and that may be true in some events, but Link found that her speed was an asset in the hammer. The small, technical adjustments that throwers make to find that extra couple of inches also appealed to her.

“I’m definitely a little smaller and shorter than what you’re used to seeing most throwers look like,” Link admitted, “but I think the speed that I have from being a sprinter and soccer is why I’m in a good spot for throwing hammer and throwing weight.”

She continued, “When you see these incredible throwers at the Olympics or wherever, just any high-level thrower, they make it look so easy. So, it’s easy for people who aren’t really familiar with the sport to just be like, ‘Oh, they’re just throwing a ball on a wire, it’s easy.’ It’s so fun to see, ‘I’m going to turn my foot this way or I’m going to put a little more weight on my left side rather than my right side’ and it’s going to improve my throw that much more because I made a small little change.”

After setting a new personal best in the weight, Link was frustrated that she didn’t build off that first meet, but last weekend she set a new PR with a throw of 56-11-1/2 and finished in sixth. She considers the hammer her best event, so weight is setting a foundation for the outdoor season and Link is trying to keep it in perspective. “It’s actually been going a lot better than my coach and I anticipated really,” she said.

Link continued, “That first meet, I was honestly freaking out and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m in this new, really big conference, this is terrifying.’ It was kind of overwhelming but the second and third meet I learned to be a little more composed and confident and ready to go. So, even though the results don’t show it and the numbers don’t show it, there have been a lot of wins and a lot of good takeaways.”

She has been in Waco since the summer, so it is starting to feel more like home and it is clear that she is enjoying the work, her team, and the overall experience. While Link is comfortable at Baylor and looking forward to more success as she develops as a thrower, she never stops being amazed at how far she has come and how she got there.

“If I hadn’t gotten hurt freshman year, I want to say there’s a zero percent chance I would’ve gotten into throwing because that’s the only thing that pushed me into it,” Link said. “It’s just so wild because it was my first semester at this new school and I’m hurt and it was probably the lowest point I could’ve been in that situation.

“I was so bummed, I was so frustrated, because all I wanted to do was compete and I couldn’t. But it was definitely supposed to happen like that because here I am.”

Player of the Week: Jake Wall, Mansfield Track

Jake Wall
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Mansfield senior Jake Wall has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Dec. 13 through Dec. 19. Wall is the 12th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the first of the winter season.

Wall got off to an impressive start to his senior season, winning three events in each of Mansfield’s first two dual meets. The University of Michigan-commit and defending state champion in the long jump, won the 55-meter hurdles and long jump in both meets, while also taking first place in the 55-meter dash against Attleboro and the high jump against Taunton.

“Jake has had an outstanding start to the indoor track season winning all six of his events while also breaking the school’s indoor long jump record,” said Mansfield head coach Kevin Butera. “Jake has developed into a real triple threat at the conference and state level as a sprinter, hurdler, and jumper with top marks in the Hockomock 55M, 55M hurdles, and the long jump.”

Wall got his season kicked off with three first-place finishes against Taunton, helping Mansfield win its opening dual meet at Wheaton College. He won the 55M hurdles in a time of 7.95, the high jump with a height of 5-04.00, and the long jump with a leap of 22-03.00. Four days later, at the Reggie Lewis Center, in a loss to Attleboro, Wall won three events again. He won the long jump in 21-10.75, the 55M dash with a personal best of 6.85, and the 55M hurdles with another personal best of 7.89.
