The track and field season has started with numerous personal records (PRs) and team wins just three weeks into the season.
“We have some kids who have done exceptionally well, (and) had some great PRs and seasonal PRs. The team goal is to win our league, and to qualify as many kids as we can through the postseason into sectionals and into states, if possible.”
Head Coach Michael Davidson
The first meet of the season was away at Lynbrook on Feb. 26 and the boys frosh/soph team took home a win.
Paly runners also found individual success. In the 3200 meter race, senior and boys varsity captain Henry Saul and senior Donald Taggart placed first and second, respectively.
Girls varsity captain and junior Miranda Jimenez placed first in the 1600 meter race by a margin of over 20 seconds.
Despite these strong individual performances, both varsity teams as well as the girls JV team lost.
“From a team perspective, not off to (as) strong (a) start as we had hoped, but we’ve had some really good individual performances,” Davidson said. “If you look at us on the scorecard, unfortunately we’ve lost —(with) most of the groups, it’s been kind of hit or miss.”
