On Saturday, February 16, Kellenberg’s Girls’s SMR (Sprint Medley Relay) team of Bridget McNierney, Danielle Correia, Dorie Ervilus, and Jazmine Fray won the Millrose CHSAA SMR race in 4:06.80 (two tenths of a second off the meet record). This preempted the Kellenberg boy’s 3200 meter relay team of James McQuade, Randall Turner, James Malabranche, and Dylan Murphy who teamed together and won the event in a new meet record time of 7:48.60.
The very next day, the Girls’ Track and Field team fought a hard fought team battle to take second place by two points to rival St. Anthony’s. This reverses the win the Lady Firebirds enjoyed last year, with the team title going down to the very last race, the 4×200 relay. The Lady Firebirds fought gallantly. The team will send 12 State Meet qualifiers to the NYState Meet at Cornell University on the first weekend in March.
