The North Babylon Track program won its 6th state championship in four years when junior Kris M captured the 2 mile title in a school record time of 9:08.57.  It was the second school record he broke that week having set the mile standard at 4:18 the previous Saturday.  Together with fellow school record holders Tori T, Shiloe G, Ashley M and Alena G, North Babylon runners brought home a total of 10 medals from this year’s Winter Track and Field Championships held March 3rd at Cornell University.  The girls’ 800 meter relay team placed 5th in the NYSPHSAA division and 6th in the Federation division.  The five runners were awarded “All-State” honors for their outstanding performance.

 

Kris M joins recent North Babylon Track state champions Vanessa S, Berfranz C, Bianca F and Catherine S in a tradition of excellence.  Congratulations to the entire NB track program for a job well done not just this year but every year.
