“In addition to cementing All-Star status within our division and winning LCAA Championships in the league overall, the Boy’s and Girl’s teams set a number of personal and season’s best performances, new school records, and improved their seeding positions for the Section V Championship. Brennan achieved the NYS Super Standard in the Pole Vault and narrowly missed another in the 110m Hurdles by .02. Elaina has in the NYS Provisional Standard and is closing in on the NYS Super Standard in the 400m Hurdles, while Selena has the NYS Provisional Standard in the Long Jump, but is just .75” off the Super Standard. The goal is to continue this upward trend, hit peak performance over the next two weeks, and hit the NYS Super Standards, which secure our athletes a spot in the NYS Championships.”
