On this day 3 years ago, Taylor Colucci won the 100 and 200 meter dashes at the prestigious St. Anthony’s invitational.

In the 100 meter dash, Colucci had the top time of 11.23 coming out of preliminaries, then came back with a blazing 11.05 in the finals to dust the rest of the field by 0.31 seconds.

  1. Taylor Colucci | Stony Brook | 11.05
  2. Diamonte Corley | William Floyd | 11.36
  3. Michael Smitelli | Walt Whitman | 11.37
  4. Aaron Ormon | St. Dominic | 11.38
  5. Andrei Dinoro | MacArthur | 11.39
  6. Jordan Myers | North Babylon | 11.47

The senior made it a day to remember when he claimed the 200 meter dash, blowing past a deep field with a time of 22.26.

200 Meter Dash Final

  2. Kenny Troy | Ward Melville | 22.50
  3. Diamonte Corley | William Floyd | 22.63
  4. Daniel Graw | St. Anthony’s | 22.88
  5. Isaiah Lawson | William Floyd | 23.05
  6. Marc Butterman | Oceanside | 23.13

Colucci’s dominant performance earned him the meet’s Most Outstanding Athlete award. He almost single-handedly helped the Brook finish 10th as a team in a field of forty schools.

He would finish an incredible final season at the Brook as a National and State Champion in the 200 meter dash and the anchor of the State Champion 4×100 meter relay.
