Hawks' Indoor Track & Field Squad Wraps up the Winter Season

To this point in the school year and with the beginning of the spring sports season upon us, it's pretty much been business as usual for our runners and track athletes. The cross-country team collected its sixth consecutive state title in the fall, and the indoor track team had a very successful winter season, finishing third at the states. Some of our best athletes did, however,continue to perform well in the last of the winter meets. 

Following the state meet, the Hawks competed in the New Englands, where Colin Tierney placed fifth in the two-mile race, while Lee Moses finished second in the long jump and Alex Cerbo sixth in the weight throw. This past weekend, our guys competed in the NBNationals, where eleven of our athletes - Ben Murphy (high jump), Lee Moses (long jump), Colin Tierney (set new state record in the 5000 by nine seconds), the 4 X 200 team (Kwity Paye, Lee Moses, Nick Stravato, and Ronnie Ganor), the 4 X 1 mile team (Tierney, Sam Gauthier, Avery Ingegneri, and Jared Boulanger),and Eddie Barber and Chris Celona (weight throw) - all performed very well. 

The Network's Bobby Bordieri caught up with Coach Brennan and got his reaction to the team's performance at the nationals.

With winter in the books, the boys head outside into the cold to get the outdoor season underway.
