Our first meet on the new track at Bishop Amat was a memorable one. Not only did we capture trophies on all 6 levels, we also made a record profit in the 22 team meet. Our parents drew rave reviews from opposing coaches for their professionalism in putting on the meet. The sea of gold shirts working around the track was a sight to behold. Because of our outstanding volunteers, which included over 50 parents and former athletes, the meet went off right on schedule despite having over 900 athletes compete.
Our athletes were equally impressive as the Novice Girls and Varsity Girls were meet Champions, our Novice Boys and Varsity Boys were each second in their respective divisions and both B teams finished third. Madeleine Biscaichipy and CJ Rettig each broke school and meet records in the javelin. The varsity girls 4×400 relay team of Emerson Gohrick, Devon Nardoni, Hillary Howard and Jenna Mijares, also set a new meet record.
All in all, it was one of the best meets our school has ever put on. The degree of help was unprecedented and the sportsmanship was great to see. Thanks again to all who helped make this such a special day.
