2/4 Frosh and Soph CHSAA Championships- The results are in. Both the freshman team and the Sophomore team finish in the top 10. Some great personal best performances.
1/29 NYCHSAA Sectional and NY/BQ City Championships- What a great day at the Armory. A complete team effort is needed to win the Sectional and City Title, and that is what we got for the entire team. The day got off the right start as Dorian Ryan took the Sectional 55 title and qualified for the City final. Up next was the distance crew that saw 3 guys run 10 mins or faster as Cipri- Gwyn Rowsom and Donahue collected 8 city and Sectional points. In the sectional competion, we were out to a great start with 14 points and we never looked back. The scoring in the city meet was a little more difficult. Val Ferraro and Xavier Sweet both scored in the Sectional hurdles and Val qualified for the City final. The 4x400 of Lewis, Colter, Tria and Macdonnell picked up 2 points and the team was really rolling then. The key to the sectional title ios the back scorers, guys who work really hard everyday in practice and wait for their time to shine. They got their chance on Sunday as the A and B 4x200 teams scored big in the Sectional final, and we racked up 7 points in the 1000 meters as Oettl and Norako both scored (1st and 5th). At this point, we were ahead in the section 30-12 over Fordham and we trailed St Francis by a point in the city scoring. This is when luck was on our side, 2 Sophs (Knoff and Demetriades) tie for 2nd in the Section in the high jump and 4th in the city High bring with them need points. Pat Heaney made the Shot final and added to our total. Then we got to the 400 and 600 where Andrew Defreitas and Michael Crorkin combined to bring home 10 points for the section. With 3 events left, we trailed St. Francis Prep by 1/2 a point for the title and that is when our team depth showed. We scored 7 points in the 1600 meters, 7 points in the 4x800 (1st and 5th) 7 points in the 4x200 final. No other team could withstand the onslaught as these 21 points propelled us to our 3rd Sectional and City indoor title in a row. A greta team effort.
