I sound my barbaric yawp over the rooftops of the world.

Walt Whitman, “Song of Myself”

On Wednesday the boys’ badminton team improved to 7-3 on the season with a 5-4 victory at Walt Whitman.

The Bears had a balanced attack as the singles crew registered three wins while the doubles tandems grabbed two to give the Brook the margin of victory.

Haban Weon (2nd singles/ 15-8, 15-1), Tiger Sun (3rd singles/15-8, 9-15, 15-11), and Jerry Liu (4th singles/ 15-5, 15-7) all earned victories. The winning duos on the doubles side were Tony Yu and David Wang (1st doubles/ 15-10, 15-7) and Ulysses Zhang and Jack Yu (2nd doubles/ 15-10, 15-8).

The Bears are back in action on Monday in a home match against Walt Whitman.

Etienne Nabs CARIFTA Bronze with 7’1″ Leap

April 17, 2017
Etienne CARIFTA 2017

Etienne (back center) at the opening ceremonies this weekend

This afternoon in Curacao, Jyles Etienne cleared 7′ 1″ to earn the bronze medal in the Under-20 high jump at the 46th CARIFTA Games. One year ago Etienne struck gold at CARIFTA in the Under-18 high jump with a leap of 6′ 9.5″.

Etienne entered the competition at 6′ 6.75″ and cleared it on his first attempt. He then soared over 6′ 8.75″ and 6′ 9.75″ without incident. He proceeded to top 6′ 11″ on his second attempt, but missed his first two attempts at 7′ 0.25″. In need of a huge jump, Etienne cleared it to earn a 7-foot clearance for the second time in his last two competitions. Etienne proceeded to top 7′ 1″ on his first attempt before bowing out after three tries at his personal best of 7′ 1.25″. His finish helped Team Bahamas to a third place finish for the second straight year behind Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago.

Etienne’s next major competition comes in less than two weeks at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia where he will attempt to improve on his 2nd place finish from a season ago.

Six New York Athletes to Watch at Carifta

Etienne 2016 Carifta Games

Etienne during his gold medal performance at last year’s CARIFTA Games

On Monday, Jyles Etienne will attempt to defend his gold medal at the 46th CARIFTA Games held in Curacao. In anticipation of the Caribbean’s premier track and field event, MileSplit New York identified the top six New York athletes to watch at the games. Jyles topped their list.

_____________________________________________________________

The annual CARIFTA Games are on us once again, and some of New York’s Top Athletes are down in Curacao to take on the best of the Caribbean. While many of the athletes from the South are well into postseason, the New Yorkers are looking to hold their own only four weeks into the Outdoor Season. New York is well represented with four athletes in the Top 10 in the US, and more just on the edge, looking the break in.

FloTrack has North American rights to the event, and we’ll be broadcasting all day Saturday.  Be sure to tune in tomorrow to catch all the action, and see who is representing the Empire State abroad.

#1 Jyles Etienne (Stony Brook) – Representing The Bahamas

The current State Leader made his statement in late March, booking his trip to Carifta early. At the trials in the Bahamas, Etienne cleared a Suffolk Record of 7-1.75 in the High Jump.  He’s the defending top American at the Penn Relays, and will face some of the International Names that got the jump on him last year. Can he get his revenge one year later, by matching his very impressive personal best?

After the win the Bears made a quick stop at Smithtown’s Long Beach

This afternoon the boys’ tennis team topped the Knox School 5-0 in a non-league match at the Falcons’ St. James campus.

The Bears dominated the match, dropping just two games of the 42 played. Steven Ou, John Wei, and Jim Li each won their singles matches 8-0 (Knox plays with a different scoring format) while the two doubles tandems of Thomas Lawton and Brandon Gicquel (8-2) and Sam Hou and Harry Ou (8-0) rounded out the sweep.

The Bears are back in action on Tuesday, April 18th in a league match-up at Miller Place.
