The boys track championship season finished last Wednesday as senior Co-Captain Matt Luppino and the 4x800 relay team advanced to the Meet of Champions. MOC results were not available at press time.
At the Group IV Championship, Luppino placed third in the mile with a time of 4:16.56. The boys 4x800 relay team of Luppino, senior Co-Captain Frankie Pinney, junior Will Chandler and sophomore Nick Antonelli placed fifth with a time of 7:58.95.
Said Luppino: “Group IV is the toughest group in the state, but our guys really stepped up on the biggest stage.... By the time I got the baton, I knew I had to run fast for the rest of the guys, and I left it all on the track.”
Another highlight was the 4x1600 team of senior Dalton Herzog, senior Phil Edwards, junior Matt Russo and sophomore Ryan Siegel’s victory at counties for the fifth straight year.
