Congratulations to Westborough’s Alana Moberg and Isaiah Powers for making the Worcester Telegram & Gazette Track All-Star Super Team!
Alana Moberg, Westborough HS SR
Westboro has a rich tradition when it comes to pole vaulting, one Moberg carried on and enhanced during her four seasons competing for the Rangers. There was no slump for this senior as she successfully defended her titles at the Central Mass. Class B and Central/Western Mass. Division 1 championships. She cleared 10 feet, 6 inches at the latter meet, an improvement of a full foot on her personal best. One year after finishing 12th in her debut at the state meet, Moberg topped 10 feet to earn a spot on the podium with her sixth-place finish. Moberg will attend Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, where she plans to major in biology. She is the daughter of Elizabeth Howes and Greg Moberg of Westboro.
Isaiah Powers, Westborough HS SO
Powers certainly went a long — or, more appropriately, high — way in a short time. After topping out at 10 feet, 6 inches as a sophomore, he soared to new heights this season. Powers cleared 13-6 to finish second at the Central/Western Mass. Division 1 Championships after placing 13th the year before. His debut at the state meet was a memorable and dramatic one. Powers cleared 14 feet on his third and final attempt to take second place. That was the second-best jump in the state this spring. Powers also excelled in the 110-meter hurdles (season best 15.65 seconds), placing fourth at the Central Mass. Class A and seventh at the CMass/WMass Division 1 meets. He is the son of Betsy Alper and Bruce Powers of Harrisville, Rhode Island.
