WAYLAND – Wayland-Cohocton head coach Julie Martin returns for her seventh season after another successful campaign a year ago leading her boys’ squad to the Rochester Winter Track League (RWTL) South Division League title and a third-place finish at sectionals.

The boys had an outstanding season last year as Vanyo Nielsen won the Section V Pole Vault title and finished ninth in NYS while teammate Titan Rocha earned the 1000-meter sectional crown.

The team of Rocha, Greg Reilly, Titan Rocha, Wyatt Mastin and Goose Gammell also captured the 4X8 title.

This year’s squad will not be nearly as seasoned but will work just as hard as senior Wyatt Mastin is back.

“Wyatt should be in contention to win the 1600 m run in Class A3 this year as his top time coming in was 5:00.86 a year ago,” coach Martin said.

Also, look for Connor Mead to do well in the distance events.

Coach Martin also feels that Rachael Gray should be in contention to win the 1000 m run in Class A3 as well.

Top newcomers include Chucky Cibrian- sprints; Connor Perry- high jump; Job Theobald- Mid-distance/distance; Hope Ammarell- 3000/1500/1000; Rowan Ferguson-mid-distance/sprints and Shaila Pragle- mid-distance/sprints.

“I am excited to see what this season has in store for us,” coach Martin said. “While we lost some key contributors from our boys team, I expect to see some great performances this season and even some sectional winners. Both our boy’s and girl’s teams have been working tremendously hard so far this pre-season. We have much more depth on the girls’ side this year, which is encouraging.”
