At this past Saturday's Track and Field County Championships, Whitman senior Rick Rizzo, shown in a photo from this past football season, took third place in the Shot Put with a throw of 49.07.50 feet. Shot Put coach Karl Ulrich tells us this is the furthest any Whitman athlete has thrown in the past 20 years.

Additionally at the county meet, Whitman Sophomore Gerald Riley placed 7th in the Boys 300 Meter dash with a time of 37.75. Gerald was only 1.49 seconds behind the county champion. Gerald's time makes him the fastest Sophomore in Suffolk County!
