On Sunday evening, Feb. 22, six Haldane track and field athletes headed down to the New Balance Track and Field Center at the Armory in New York City to compete in New York state qualifying meets.

Ruby McEwen finished third in her heat, breaking her previously set Haldane School record time.

Marina Martin broke her previously established school record as well in the 55-meter dash. Coach AJ McConville commented that “all athletes competed very well in their events.”
