Track Coach Rob Conroy is happy to report that at Saturday’s New York State championship track meet, held at Cornell University, Shamar Powell set new school record in the 1000 meter with a time of 2.29.05. The excellent time gave Powell the #4 spot in the state.

Also at the State Championships, Whitman runner Chad Maier, who set a personal best in the 3200 meter with a time of 9:34.34, netted himself a #13 spot in the state. Jacob Kahrs was instrumental in helping Section XI finish 3rd in the medley relay, running the 1600 meter leg. Congratulations on a great winter track season.
