A 2018 graduate of Lincoln High who was an All-Class thrower with the Lions’ track and field program, Thibaudeau took fourth place in the 35-pound weight throw at the Little East Conference Championships that took place on Feb. 22 at the University of Southern Maine with a throw of 44 feet, 6¾ inches.

At the following weekend’s New England Division III Championships in Springfield, Mass., Thibaudeau placed 13th in the weight with a throw of 48-6¾.
