Girls Track Bolts to a Barrage of Broken Records at Seahawk Invitational

May 05 2017

The Girl’s track and field team continued on their mercurial path towards the championship season by breaking three long standing School records at Thursday’s “Seahawk Invitational,” a Long Island twilight Meet favorite.

Julia Bryant broke the school (and meet) record in the 1000 meter steeplechase with a time of 3:32.2. The previous record of 3:34 was set in 2010 by Kylie Pearse, a future steeplechase champion. Bryant led a Kellenberg sweep with Erin Doherty and Emma Dougherty finishing second and third. It was a very special day for Bryant and Dougherty, as they, and fellow team member Tori Smith were ordained Eucharistic Ministers.

The 4×200 Relay of Gabby Buissereth, Chrissy Foster, Tori Duignan, and Camryn Beckford broke the seven year old 4×200 record by two seconds running 1:46.20. The previous record was held by Michele Anthony, Jasmin Belcher, Odrine Belot, and Clare Carroll.

The final record on this successful evening was the 4×1500. The quartet of Brianna Lausev, Maya Richardson, Grace Browne, and Maureen Lewin ran to a winning 20:33.50, eclipsing the 21:16 of Melanie Watts, Ashlin Conroy, Kylie Pearse, and Clare Carroll set in 2009.
