Haldane track and field athletes competed May 2 and 3 at the Somers Lions Club Track and Field Invitational at Somers High School. Haldane turned in several outstanding performances.
In the freshman-sophomore races, Abbey Stowell finished first in the 200 meter dash (28.2) and Nick Farrell finished in the top five in Class C for the 800 meter competition (2:14.8).
In varsity action, Sarah Warren finished in the top five for Class C in the 400 meter dash (1:04.5) and Abbey Stowell finished in the top five for Class C in the 100 meter dash (13.5). Adele Westerhuis continues to place in the top five of Class C for both shot put (25-11) and discus (70-7).
The boys’ distance team really distinguished themselves. John Hughes and Theodore Henderson finished fifth and sixth, respectively, in an extremely competitive 800-meter field. Both finished in under 2 minutes; John at 1:59.5 and Theo at 1:59.7, establishing a Haldane record for the second time this season. It will be interesting to watch how they finish the season. The 4×1600 relay team (Theodore Henderson, John Hughes, Jonathan Clemente, and Nick Farrell) on Friday (May 2) ran 19:18.
