The Brooklyn girls Track and Field team placed 6th out of twelve teams at the PAC championships, scoring 40 points. Jenna Young kicked off the scoring on Thursday when she jumped 5’3 and took 1st place in the high jump. Jenna finished the year undefeated and outjumped the nearest competitor at PAC by almost one foot. Jenna continued her PAC domination by taking 1st place in the 100m dash and running a PR 13.01. In the 1600m run, Madison Herbert ran her best time of the year (7:17), shaving nearly 20 seconds off her PR and finishing 7th. The girls 4x100m relay team, Jenna Young, Melaine Fernandez, Normeze Rivera, and Delaney David, raced to a season best 56.94 and a second place finish. The 4x200m relay team (Melaine Fernandez, Rebecca Fagiani, Normeze Rivera, and Delaney David) finished just shy of the podium with a 4th place finish. Lexie Childers rounded out the scoring for the Lady Canes with a 4th place jump of 12’4. Great job to all the girls and it’s been a great season!
The Brooklyn boys Track and Field team tied for 5th place with 54 points. Calvin Gore put the Hurricanes on the board in a big way, with a 1st place finish in the shot put, throwing 37’4. The boys hurdlers capped off their successful season by earning 3rd and 5th place in the 110m hurdles. Chavon Holton ran a great race, finishing third with a PR 18.26 and Alex Chiclana finished 5th, running below 20 seconds for the first time ever at 19.41. Ray Cogburn sprinted to a 3rd place finish with his first sub-12 time ever, running 11.95. The boys 4x100m and 4x200m relay team, Ray Cogburn, Anthony Starr, Calvin Gore, and Massiah Baker, took second in both events, running incredible PRs of 49.42 and 1:43. Oscar Davis finished 6th and Chavon Holton finished 8th in the 200m Hurdles. Finishing off the scoring for the Hurricanes was Massiah Baker with a 3rd place finish in the 200m dash. For a team who didn’t see the podium last year at PAC, the boys team put in lots of work and went out on top in our last year in the conference. Congratulations boys!
