Wheatley Track and Field Athletes Compete in County Championships!

On Thursday evening, the Boys and Girls Indoor Track athletes competed in the Nassau County Class C Championship meet at St. Anthony’s High School. At the end of a long night of tight competition, the Girls team earned 3rd place overall, and the Boys earned 7th place overall! Along the way, two boys and six girls earned All-County recognition.

A highlight of the competition was the exciting 4×800 m relay race. At the end of this great race, our relay team of Caitlin O’Keefe, Caroline O’Brien, Emmie Keys and Julia Schriefer was crowned Nassau County Class C Champions!

Additionally, three were two school records set during the evening! Paula Gbenebitse leaped 16’ 5.75” in the long jump! Julia Schriefer shattered her personal best running 3:00.10 in the 1000m (that time currently NY#6 among sophomores and NY#25 overall)!

Congratulations to all of the athletes who competed in the event or who supported others. Thanks as well for Coach Paulson for supporting the team.
