Blue Devils Battle in Track and Field State Qualifiers

Stowell, Farrell qualify for Nationals

By Peter Farrell

Haldane athletes left it all on the track and field over the past weekend, battling schools from the New York area in events held at Arlington High School on Friday, May 28, White Plains High School May 29, and then onto Warwick June 1 for the right to advance to the New York State Track and Field Championships to be held in Albany on June 12 and 13.

Many Blue Devil athletes delivered personal records in the Section 1 New York State High School Qualifying Meet, as well as setting a few new Haldane records. While the Blue Devils competed strongly in many events, they will not advance any athletes to the state championships this season.

Two Blue Devils did qualify, however, for the New Balance Track and Field National Championships to be held in Greensboro, North Carolina, on June 21 and 22: Blue Devil freshmen Abbey Stowell, with 15 feet 10 inches in long jump, and Nick Farrell with 9 minutes, 52 seconds in the 3,200-meter, will have the opportunity to compete against the best high school athletes in the nation in their freshman events.
