Railroaders end indoor season on high note

T he Whitehall indoor track team wrapped up its season with a trio of top-six finishes at the Section II Division IV championships held Monday at the University of Albany.

Marion Gendron wrapped up her varsity career with a fifth-place finish in the girls 300-meter dash and a fourth-place finish in the girls triple jump. Ashley Millett had perhaps her best performance of the season, finishing third in the girl’s high jump.

Millett’s leap of four feet in the high jump netted the team six points and was only four inches behind the second-place finisher. Abby Maiello of Mechanicville won the event with a jump of four feet and eight inches.

Millett also finished 14th in the shot put. Teammate Maggie Benjamin finished 13th in that same event.

Gendron narrowly missed out on two fourths, crossing the line in the girls 300-meter dash two-hundredths of a second behind Lexi Vendetti of Notre Dame-Bishop. With a time of 48.98 seconds, Gendron was one of only six competitors to finish with a time under 50 seconds.

Her leap of 28 feet and three inches in the girls triple jump was good enough for a top four finish.

As a team, Whitehall finished with 12 points, just behind ninth-place finisher Watervliet.

Toran Tracy finished 14th in the boys 1,600 meter run with a time of 5:49.18.
