Section V RWTL Week 8 Feb.6.2016

Written by Reggie Henderson on .

Watson and Thomas lead nation and break records

Sammy Watson (junior) and Lanae-Tava Thomas (sophomore) of Rush-Henrietta traveled to NYC for the Armory Invitational this weekend. 

On Friday night Watson won the 1000M race with a 2:45.32 which breaks her own Section V record, and breaks the New York State record (unless you count Mary Cain’s performances as a professional), and is the top time in the USA for high school girls.  By the USATF list the time ranks 9th in the US this year (including pros and college).

On Saturday Watson won the 600M race with a 1:30.08 to take the top time in the state and nation and break her own Section V record from earlier this season.

Watson lost one record this weekend though… teammate Lanae-Tava Thomas took 2nd in the 300m with the second fastest time in the nation, fastest in the state, and broke Watson’s Section V record in the 300m (39.34) with a 38.38.  (so now Watson only has the Section V records in the 600, 800 and 1000).  Thomas still has the top time in the nation for the 55m at 6.90

Back at home, Section V was competing at RIT…

Aubrianna Lantrip of Midlakes high jumped 5-6 for an SVSB and NYS3 (5-way tie).  The state leader is a 2-way tie at 5-7 so... state champs should be great, if they have a 5-6 to 5-8 progression you could see a 7-way tie for first ;)

Alecszandre Burger of Romulus high jumped 6-4, not quite the SVSB 6-6 that Connor Spiegel of Webster Thomas has, but good enough for NYS8 (4-way tie)

Ben Bulkeley (sophomore) of Fairport took over the SVSB from Eddie Ely (Pal Mac) in the 600m with a 1:22.89 (NYS10)

Andrew Palermo (sophomore) of Spencerport threw the weight 55-05.25 (NYS12) to take over the SVSB from Anthony Ray of Batavia.

Asia McInnis (junior) of Greece Arcadia triple jumped 37-01.25, not quite the SVSB by Lanae-Tava Thomas, but good enough for NYS12.

Elie Pauly of Hilton lowered her SVSB in the 1500 Racewalk to 7:27.93 (NYS13)

Natalie Neamtu (junior) of Webster Thomas lowered her own SVSB in the 1500 to 4:44.89 (NYS16)

Elsa Cole (junior) of Fillmore ran a 10:28.24 for the 3000m lowering the SVSB by 10 seconds from Amanda Vestri’s (Webster Thomas) mark.

RWTL Week 7 Jan.30.2016

Written by Reggie Henderson on .

Watson, Thomas, and Brown performances rank high nationally

Sammy Watson of Rush-Henrietta lowered her 1000m time to 2:48.05 to lead the state and is ranked 2nd in the nation to Kate Murphy of Virginia.

Kelly Brown of Wilson Magnet lowered his state leading 55m Hurdles time to 7.33 to rank 4th in the nation.

Lanae-Tava Thomas of Rush-Henrietta won the 55m in 7.03 and her 6.90 from Dec.30 is number 1 in the state and nation. 

Terry Taylor of Greece Olympia raised his SVSB and state leading mark in the pole vault from 14-1 to 14-3.

Donny Glavin of McQuaid Jesuit ran a 9:27.95 two-mile at the Ocean Breeze High School Invitational in Staten Island NYC.  His time is faster than Nick Neamtu’s Section V leading 3200, and the 2 mile is about 14 meters longer.  Glavin ranks 3rd in the state for the 2 mile.

Rush-Henrietta’s Girls 4x400 team of Fowler, Thomas, Thompson and Watson ran a 3:56.20 for the SVSB, 3rd ranking in the state, and missed the 2009 Wilson Magnet all-time Section V Indoor Record by just 0.31 seconds.

Rush-Henrietta’s Boys 4x400 team of Daniels, Taddesse, Campbell and Dalfonso also set a SVSB with a 3:33.65

Aubrianna Lantrip of Midlakes high jumped 5-5.5 for a SVSB and New York State 7th ranking.

Anthony Ray of Batavia threw the weight 53-10.5 for the SVSB and NYS16.

Natalie Neamtu of Webster Thomas ran an SVSB in the 1500 of 4:45.89 for NYS19.  This pushed Watson out of the top Section V season ranking for the 1500, leaving Watson with just the SVSB in the 300, 600 and 1000.

Jan.22-23 Section V versus Section VI at Houghton and League Meets at Brockport

Written by Reggie Henderson on .

Kelly Brown sprints ahead!

Kelly Brown of Wilson Magnet took back the top state time in the 55m with a 6.40 and widened the spread between himself and the rest of Western New York winning at Houghton by 0.15 over 2nd place Tremaine Moore of Greece Olympia.  Brown also lowered his 55m Hurdles time to 7.50 for a spread of 0.23 over second place and 0.50 over 3rd.  Statewide, Brown is in a 2-way tie for state leader.

Brown, however, lost his Section V Season Best (SVSB) time in the 300 to Noah Williams of McQuaid and Anthony Smith of UPrep Rochester who burned up the track at Brockport on Saturday with times of 35.26 and 35.33 for NY State 4th and 5th rankings respectively.

Connor Spiegel of Webster Thomas raised his SVSB in the high jump from 6-4 to 6-6 for the win at Houghton and is in a 3-way tie for 2nd highest in the state.

Tobi Tella of McQuaid exceeded his own SVSB in the triple jump bounding out to 47-09 for NYS3.

Nick Neamtu of Webster Thomas took over the distance running leaderboard from Donny Glavin (McQuaid).  Neamtu added to his SVSB in the 3200 (NYS6) from earlier this season with a 4:24.15 in the 1600m for a SVSB and NYS5.

Ellie Pauly of Hilton won the 1500m racewalk lowering her SVSB to 7:31.62 (NYS8)

Fairport Boys 4x800 brought down the SVSB to 8:06.97 (NYS11)

Webster Thomas Girls 4x800 brought down the SVSB to 9:49.65 (NYS21)

Rush-Henrietta Boys 4x200 beat Greece Olympia at Houghton and lowered the SVSB to 1:32.48.

Northstar Christian is a pretty small school and they’ve somehow put together a boys 4x400 team, (Adrian Minott, Juan Camacho, Adrian Mazur, Migual DeSaja), that can clock a 3:34.81 (53.7 average) 

Elsa Cole of Fillmore and Natalie Neamtu of Webster Thomas battled it out in the 1500m and came close to Sammy Watson's SVSB in the 1500.  The times are Watson 4:48.06 (from earlier in the season), Cole 4:48.61 and Neamtu 4:48.91 at Houghton.

Rush-Henrietta girls won the Section V versus Section VI meet without their stars who were at the New Balance Games at the Armory in NYC.

Rush-Henrietta boys took 2nd to Lancaster with Lancaster sweeping the throws for a total of 48 points in those two events alone.

New Balance Games - Armory NYC - Jan.24.2016

Watson wins 600 and 300 with Section V Record

Sammy Watson lead her teammates Lanae-Tava Thomas and Tori Thompson in the 300 at the New Balance Games, with Watson and Thomas sweeping 1-2 and Thompson taking 6th at times good enough for a Section V Record and a 1-2-3 sweep of the Section V Leaderboard: Watson 39.34, Thomas 39.56, Thompson 40.98

20 minutes later Watson came back and won the 600m at 1:32.25

Thomas won the long jump at 18-4
