LYNN – The rich history of Lynn English’s athletics program has added a new chapter to the school’s first season in the Greater Boston League (GBL).

The Bulldogs women’s indoor team, led by coach Brenda Martin, will bring four team members – senior Kendra Malcolm, junior Victoria Samuel, senior Amy Gutierrez and junior Aida Bellal – to the United States on Saturday at the Reggie Lewis Track and Field Arena in Boston.

Malcolm and Samuel will participate in the 55 meter dash and they, along with Gutierrez and Bellal will participate in the 4 par 200 relay.

“I’m very proud of Kendra and Victoria and all of the dedicated young women on this year’s indoor track team,” said Martin. “They are really focused on training and their hard work is paying off. I have the privilege of coaching what I consider to be one of the best English indoor track teams of all time.

Malcolm qualified with a time of 7.45 seconds by winning the 55-meter sprint at the GBL meeting held last Monday. Samuel also qualified with a time of 7.88 seconds in Monday’s GBL meet.

The 4-by-200 relay team of Malcom, Samuel, Gutierrez and Bellal qualified with a time of 1:59 in Monday’s encounter.

Additionally, Cynaya Jackson, a junior, won the shot put at the GBL meet with a throw of 27-5.
