So, that’s why Gerald Riley wasn’t able to accept his special award at Friday night’s 1st Annual Football Dinner– he was Up-State setting a new track and field record. Congratulations to Whitman’s sophomore track sensation, who along with his three other teammates, set a new state record in the Boys Intersectional Medley Relay at this year’s New York State Track and Field State Championships at Cornell University. Varsity track coach Rob Conroy tells us that the new record is now 8:50.95. Gerald runs the 200-meter leg of the relay.

Congratulations Gerald Riley, and teammates Vincent Cicale, Connor Christian, and James Burke for representing Long Island in such grand fashion.
