BMHS 1980

35 years ago today (02-04-80) – Arch rival Chelmsford took on the Billerica squad in a dual meet at the Andover (Phillips) indoor track.  Points towards a varsity letter were earned by finishing in the top 5 in your event and in this meet the points would be doubled.  That is how bitter the rivalry was!  I ran the mile which turned into a tactical race for me.  My teammate John Dangora and Chelmsford’s Tom Chamberas (who would be my teammate in College) had a great battle with John beating Tom while both were timed at 4:48.  I snuck under 5 minutes (4:59) for third place and some all-important points towards my letter.
