Here is the link to the full results:

“It was great to see the Red Raider Boys’ Team hoist the championship trophy today and take their victory lap at the end of the meet. As stated, this was truly a total team win, and the coaching staff is tremendously proud of these young men. Brennan Delany had an outstanding day, bringing in 40 points with his four wins that also resulted in four new track records. But the other 113.5 points came from the rest of the squad. 13 other athletes who competed in the meet earned points toward this victory. The boys worked hard all week and it paid off today. Additionally, it was a big step forward in forming their identity and bonding as a team. Today we saw an intensity in their eyes, a fire in their bellies, and best of all, smiles on their faces. No coaching staff could ask for more from their team.”

The Lady Raiders finished 3rd out of ten teams today at the John Reed Memorial Invitational.

Freshman Selena Maldonado led the way for the Girls’ team with wins in the 200M-26.82, TJ-30-11, and the 400M Relay, while adding a 3rd place finish in the Pole Vault. 

Senior Elaina Flaitz won the High Jump-5-1 and anchored the winning 400M Relay. Lainey added 2nd place finishes in 100M Hurdles-17.63 and the 400M Hurdles-1:13.85 as well.

The Co-Ed Throwers 400M Relay of Makayla Kriner, Delaney Meehan, Braydon Campbell, and Evan Clair placed 4th-1:02.10.

“The coaching staff congratulates the Girls’ team on a great 3rd place finish. Alexander just edged us out for 2nd place. And the Canisteo-Greenwood girls were dominant today.  Elaina Flaitz is our Senior captain and most experienced veteran; she sets the tenor for the Girls’ team. Today Lainey continued her undefeated streak in the High Jump and set a new facilities record of 5-01, and she held off a hard-charging Alexander squad in a thrilling victory in the 400M Relay. At the other end of the spectrum are an outstanding group of 8th and 9th graders. Ella, Riley, Elisa, Silvia (“Sil”), and Selena (“Sel”) are growing more and more confident with each meet and it shows in their performances on the track and in the field. They are all tenacious competitors who are running fearlessly. Selena broke her own track record today in the 200M. And the 400M Relay also broke the track record, posting the fifth-fastest time overall in Section V. We changed the order today and their handoffs were near perfect, but it was very windy today, and the girls know they can run a sub-52 second relay. We know they would love to do it at home under the lights at the Hornell Invitational in two weeks.”
