William Hoover took 1st place in the 800m, stomping out the competition, 2nd place finished a full 10 seconds after William. Hoover also won the 400m with a season best 58.82, his first sub-60 time of the year. The boys 1600m relay team also clenched the first place spot with an outstanding performance from the team of Cassius Catallo, James Sneyd, Jonah Mougoue, and William Hoover. Other highlights included Ben Wedepohl’s 3rd place finish in the Shot Put, the boys 2nd place finish in the 800m relay, and Arrow Gardette’s 4th place finish in the 100m. This was the last competition of the 2017 season.
“I am extremely proud of our boys squad this year, we had some outstanding performances and I appreciate the efforts of every athlete. We are working hard and truly developing our middle school program. I am sad to lose our 8th grade group, but will be excited to see them perform at the next level in high school. We have some great talent in 6th and 7th grade and will look to see them develop over the next few years. I really want to focus on numbers and commitment next year, they are the two things that will take us from good to great.” -Coach Nik Lamansky.
