Horde track prepares for league championship

B y Jaime Thomas

Track Coach Jay Condon said the team is coming along and in good shape for its approaching league championship next Wednesday.

In a dual meet last Tuesday, both the boys and girls track team beat nearby Whitehall but lost to host Hudson Valley.

Senior Gabe Pratt kept busy finishing first in the boys 100-meter dash in 11.6 seconds, first again in the 200-meter dash in 23.2 and second in the 400-meter dash in 54.6. He also ran with the 4×400-meter ‘A’ relay team, along with Jacopo Depretto, Grant Gallagher and Ricky Prevost, which placed second in 4:08:50.

Gallagher also snagged second in the 100-meter dash at 12.10 and third in the 200-meter at 25.4 seconds. And Jake Williams used his legs to come first in the 400-meter hurdles in 1:02.2 and long jump at 19-1.5 and second in the high jump, gaining 5 feet 8 inches.

On the girls’ side, junior Heather Chapman kept up her season standard placing first in both the discus throw and the shot put at 102-05 and 33-04, respectively. Taylor Scribner also earned two first-place wins with the 100-meter and 200-meter dash, crossing the line in 13.20 and 28.8 seconds.

Condon was pleased with the Horde’s performance at the Hudson Falls invitational last Saturday.

“I was impressed with the team this weekend,” he said, naming several athletes.

“Heather Chapman finished second in the discus and made the state ‘at large’ mark as well,” Condon said of her 111-04 throw against 50 other girls. In a sea of competition, Scribner was also able to make her mark coming out fourteenth out of 42 girls in the 100-meter dash.

Williams had a chance to try out a new event and managed to beat some of his opponents.

“Jake Williams finished fourth in the Pent, which is an event he has never competed in,” Condon said. He was also impressed with Pratt and Gallagher, who both made the final of the 100-meter, taking the number 10 and 11 slots out of 45.

The Horde will have an opportunity to break more personal records and gain more placements at the Wasaren League Championship meet on May 15.
