Nigro, Gado were on track at Lyman Hall


WALLINGFORD — Senior Paul Nigro and junior Alana Gado were Lyman Hall High School’s Record-Journal Scholar-Athletes this spring for track and field coach Ed Neilander.

He’s sorry to see one go. He’s thrilled to have the other back.

Nigro, the senior, graduated last week with a 3.94 grade-point average. Gado, the junior, takes a 4.27 GPA into her senior year.

Nigro ran on Lyman Hall’s state-qualifying 4x800 team. Overall, he was voted the squad’s Most Improved performer.

The son of John and Denise Nigro was also captain of Lyman Hall’s cross country team.

“Paul has become a runner the team can count on. He is determination personified,” Neilander remarked.

“After four years of competition he has made a lasting impression and he will be missed.”

Gado will return to compete in the pole vault, the 400 meters and the 4x100 and 4x400 relays. She’s already been named team captain for next year’s indoor and outdoor track teams.

The daughter of Mark and Tara Gado is a High Honors student and Varsity Scholar. Her course load has included AP courses in American Government, Comparative Politics, English, Physics and Psychology.

“Alana is one of the most talented student-athletes we have seen,” Neilander said. “She is dedicated to her studies and her sport. She is a top athlete who has a will to win second to none. Alana does all of this while maintaining a positive attitude. She has earned the respect of the team and the student body.”
