The Hornell boys and girls track teams had a strong meet on Tuesday with Livonia.

Coming up on May 6 is one of the best invitationals in the state, the Hornell Invitational. Teams include Addison, Alfred-Almond, Allegany-Linestone (Section VI), Arkport-Canaseraga, Avoca-Prattsubrgh, Bath-Haverling, Bolivar-Richburg, Canisteo-Greenwood, Cuba-Rushford, Dansville, Franklinville-Ellicottville (Section VI), Hammondsport, Jasper-Troupsburg, McQuaid, North Tonawanda (Section VI), Salamanca (Section VI), Southwestern (Section VI), Penn Yan, Pal-Mac, Wayland-Cohocton and Wellsville.

“We have some great talent on the squad, specifically junior veteran Elaina Flaitz and new eighth-grader Selena Maldonado,” said Damian DeMarco, Hornell High School Girls’ Track and Field Coach. “Both took three firsts and a second yesterday against Livonia. They are multi-talented, and we are using this regular season to put them in as many possible events possible to improve our chances for earning a trip to the state meet.”

Mary Wolf, the shot and discus coach said, “The throwers performed well tonight, the guys finished with the top three spots for disc, with Kenny Graham pulling out the top spot with a throw of 105’ 10”, Evan Clair came out with the top spot in shot with a throw of 35’7”, the girls are improving at each meet and tonight was no different, Makayla Kriner just missed placing in the shot by 4 inches, I have been impressed with the athletes growth and look forward to continued improvement from the team as a whole.”
