Colucci & Lawson Take on Nation’s Best Tomorrow

March 10, 2011

Colucci and Lawson will test their speed at the national level

Tomorrow morning Taylor Colucci and Khoren Lawson will travel into New York City for the New Balance Indoor Nationals where they will compete against competition from across the United States.  Colucci and Lawson are 2 of 28 qualifiers in the Emerging Elite category of the 60 meter dash and will face competitors from New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, Maine, Michigan, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Ohio, Tennessee and Georgia.

Lawson will also be competing in the Emerging Elite triple jump against 19 other qualifiers from Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Connecticut, Massachusetts and California.

Our 1st and only National Champion was Stony Brook Hall of Famer Paul Cuffari who won the shot put in the National Prep School Track and Field Championships held at Madison Square Garden.  On February 18, 1950 his toss of 52 feet, 3 1/4 inches gave him the historic victory.
