  • End of Winter Season

    Posted by Gerard Van Slooten on 3/2/2018 10:10:00 AM

    We are all excited about the beginning of Spring Track as the program could not be in better shape and we all anticipate taking the county by storm this year as we expect the Boys and Girls Teams to finish over .500 and rank in the top of the county and section at the end of the season.  

    As we close out the Winter Season, we just wanted to congratulate Will Simpson (shot), Barry Ndeh (high jump) and the Boys 4x4 team (Casiano, Ndeh, Augustin, and Phildor) for moving into the State Meet. 

    Also, as I entered the final stats and few records to note:

    New indoor 4x8 record by Ensana, Dol, Clayton and Sanchez

    New shuttle hurdle record of 39.5 by Miller, Espinoza, Merrill and Jean-Baptiste

    New Sprint Medley record of 14:05.67 by Ensana, Dol, Clayton and Sanchez

     

    Great Season to All
