Pipia Selects UMASS-Lowell

Written by Robert Bonaparte Thursday, 03 July 2014 00:00

As an eighth-grader, Celeste Pipia wasn’t thinking much about shot put. 


She was a goalie on the Sewanhaka Indians junior high girls soccer team, when coach Jamie Celona noticed Pipia’s strength. Eventually, Celona suggested to Pipia to take a physical test and try out for shot put for the varsity track and field team. 


Almost five years later and Pipia has taken full advantage of that opportunity.
