By Newsday’s Jordan Lauterbach:

Kellenberg’s Maureen Lewin figured she wasn’t going to break any records Saturday morning, but that didn’t matter much to her. It’s championship season and championship season is less about records and more about endurance. Toward the end of a long outdoor season, and an even longer school year, the top athletes are often asked to perform well in multiple events.

Lewin is certainly one of those top athletes and she proved it by winning two events at the CHSAA League Championships at St. Anthony’s High School. The senior won the 1,500 meters in four minutes, 45.16 seconds and the 800 in 2:16.40.

The victories helped Kellenberg win the team title with 77 ½ points. St. John the Baptist was second with 69 ½.

Lewin took the 1,500 out hard, looking to lead her two teammates, Maya Richardson and Ashley Minns, along. Richardson took second in 4:52.80 and Minns was third in 4:59.25, both personal bests, they said.

“We wanted to go in and conserve as much energy as we could because we were all [doing three events] today,” Lewin said. “…I tried to get out, get a lead and tried to stay together to finish 1-2-3.”
