Player of the Week: David Peters, Stoughton Track

Morse Insurance
 

David Peters
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Stoughton junior David Peters has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Feb. 17 through Feb. 23. Peters is the 21st player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2018-19 school year and the 11th player in the winter season.

Peters took home the title in the 55-meter hurdles at this past weekend’s All-State Meet at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. He set a personal best with a time of 7.46, edging the second-place finisher from Acton-Boxboro by only 0.01 seconds, to bring home first in his first year racing at the indoor all-state meet. Peters also took part in the long jump, finishing ninth with a leap of more than 21 feet.

“This weekend was huge for David,” said Stoughton track coach Lauren Pinchieri. “We knew that when he was challenged he would rise to success. David exceeds expectations in every single way! It is a pleasure coaching him.”

Peters has been on a roll over the past few weeks, showing steady improvement in his times, while winning the title at the Hockomock Championships and the Div. 3 meet. He won the Hocks with a time of 7.62 and then won the D3 meet with a time of 7.59 before setting a new PR to win at all-states.

This is the second time that Peters has been named Player of the Week. He also earned the honor last May after winning the 110-meter hurdles title at the outdoor D3 meet. Peters went on to finish seventh in the event in the all-state meet two weeks later.

The Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, is selected by the HockomockSports.com staff. Nominations can be submitted throughout the week up until Saturday night at midnight. There may be a poll posted on every Sunday with the nominations. The results of the poll influence the selection but do not strictly dictate the decision.

Player of the Week: Jada Johnson, Sharon Track

Jada Johnson
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Sharon junior Jada Johnson has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Feb. 3 through Feb. 9. Johnson is the 19th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2018-19 school year and the ninth player in the winter season.

Johnson put in a strong performance at the annual Hockomock League Indoor Track Championships this weekend at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. She took first place in three events: the 55-meter hurdles, long jump, and high jump, helping the Eagles take fifth overall (second among Davenport teams) with 60 points.

In the 55-meter hurdles, Johnson took first in a time of 8.43, which was 0.3 better than the second-place runner and 0.4 faster than her time at last year’s championship meet. Johnson then took first in the high jump, clearing five feet, seven inches. The next highest jump was five inches lower.

In her third event of the day, Johnson jumped 18 feet, 3-1/2 inches to win the long jump competition by nearly a foot. Her distance set a new Sharon record as well as a new meet record, breaking the record she set last year. It was also almost a foot longer than her jump at last year’s indoor championships and three inches longer than her jump at the outdoor championships last spring.

Johnson has been a strong performer for the Eagles in both indoor and outdoor track for several seasons. The Eagles were second in the state in Div. 3 last winter, with Johnson taking second in the long jump, fifth in the high jump and third in the hurdles at the state meet. She also finished second in both the long jump and the high jump at last year’s Div. 2 EMass Outdoor Track Championships, which the Eagles won.

The Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, is selected by the HockomockSports.com staff. Nominations can be submitted throughout the week up until Saturday night at midnight. There may be a poll posted on every Sunday with the nominations. The results of the poll influence the selection but do not strictly dictate the decision.

Attleboro’s Daggett Twins Leap Into Season at Stonehill

In middle school, twin sisters Ashley and Courtney Daggett took part in an after-school track program run by the Attleboro YMCA. At one of the sessions, they were given the opportunity to try high jumping for the first time. Nearly a decade later, they are still jumping together.

The Attleboro High grads are entering their final indoor and outdoor seasons at Stonehill College looking to extend the program’s dominance in the NE-10 (six straight conference championship meet titles) and taking advantage of a few more months competing with each other.

“It can get pretty competitive at times,” Courtney said in a phone call during their winter break, “but we’ve basically had now seven, going into our eighth year, competing at the same event. It’s changed into a respect for each other…to be better. Between Ashley and I, the competition just keeps pushing us to clear another bar and pushes us to improve our jumping.”

Ashley added, “We’re teammates but we’re also sisters, so to have the memories to look back on and we have each other to lean on when we have bad meets or good meets because we know everything we’ve been through to get to this point.”

High jump is definitely a family affair for the Daggetts. Their father Tim was also a jumper at Attleboro High and their grandfather competed at North Attleboro. So, when the YMCA offered the twins a chance to learn the event in the summer before freshman year of high school it was only natural that they jumped right in and, as it turned out, it was a perfect fit.

“It’s a very unique event and I think with all the sports I played growing up I never found that one I loved,” Ashley explained. The twins took part in gymnastics, softball, and dance. High jump combined aspects of each of those sports and the sisters were instantly hooked. “it was something that just came to us so easily that it would’ve been a missed opportunity if we didn’t see it through and see what we could do with it.”

She continued, “The feeling of going over the bar and landing on the mat and having the bar still be up is just indescribable. Everything just clicks in the moment and that’s the best feeling ever.”

 

The sisters joined the Bombardiers and became standouts. While Ashley was out with a stress fracture during their sophomore season, Courtney cleared four feet, 11 inches “out of nowhere,” breaking her personal record (PR) by three inches. It was the moment that she realized collegiate high jump was a possibility.

“That was the moment, for me, that I was like, ‘wow, I’m pretty good at this,’ and it started clicking,” she said. “It sort of gave me that confidence to give me the confidence to keep on going and know that there’s something in you to keep working towards.”

In their senior season, the duo finished one-two at the Hockomock League Track and Field Championships. “That was the icing for our careers in high school because that’s a really cool thing to do,” Courtney said. “Everything just happened perfectly.”

As would be expected for identical twins, there are a lot of similarities between their jumping styles. Ashley said, “We’re like a lot of power jumpers, using the speed to get up and then once our hips are over the bar we don’t have a lot of arch and snap. Courtney has more of a pop and is more fluid, but I have a little more arch and snap just not as much as most jumpers.”

When it came time to pick colleges, the twins didn’t initially plan to attend the same school but both wanted to compete in the NE-10 and Ashley explained, “We also thought that it wouldn’t be the best being in the same conference but on other teams. We’re as competitive as it is being on the same team, working towards the same goal, but being on separate teams would be a change.”

While the styles are the same, how the sisters have gotten to their results has been very different.

As she did in high school, Courtney makes massive gains on her PR and then works to get back up to that level. She landed five feet, 5.25 inches during the indoor season and then hit five feet, 7.25 inches during outdoor. Both stand as program records. Ashley is more of a consistent performer, who gradually builds up her PR (five feet, 4.25 inches for indoor and five feet, three inches for outdoor) at smaller increments.

Ashley said, “I challenge her to be more consistent and have confidence in each height and she challenges me not to underestimate myself and how high I could potentially go.”

The sibling rivalry is still there, but years of competing together (and as part of a team of six jumpers at Stonehill) has added perspective on how important it has been to go through this journey together.

“It’s made our bond a lot stronger,” Ashley reflected. “We’re a lot better understanding each other’s perspective. You’re part of their process in some way to help make them better.” A good example is that teammates typically avoid Courtney when she is preparing for her next jump. Ashley is the lone exception. She said, “Being twins, we really understand each other and when you need something the other one is there to give that confidence boost.”

Stonehill will be seeking two more NE-10 track titles in the coming months and the twins are focused on staying unbeaten in championship meets to close out their careers. Courtney said, “At Attleboro we weren’t really competitive as a team, so that’s been different having people depend on you to get points and to place and I’m just really grateful to have been a part of it.”

Through all their success, including being named to the USTFCCCA All-East Region teams last year (Ashley for indoor and Courtney for outdoor), all the struggles when jumps weren’t landed, or the injuries that slowed them down at various points in their careers, both sisters insist everything has been better because they have accomplished it together.

“We’ve been on this ride together since we learned to high jump,” Courtney explained. “So we can say things to each other that teammates wouldn’t be able to say. We can be brutally honest with each other but it just makes it all worth it. We’ve pushed each other to our limits.”

Stonehill will be back in action on Jan. 12 at the Beantown Challenge hosted by Harvard at the Gordon Indoor Track.
