Etienne’s Jump Helps Sting of Loss

May 5, 2015

There was plenty to cheer about yesterday, despite the track team’s close loss to Port Jeff.

Jyles Etienne reached a new personal record in the high jump with a leap of 6′ 4″, a mark that leaves him just 3/4″ shy of Bernard Mumo’s school record set in 1965. The 80-degree weather no doubt infused an extra bit of life into the sophomore’s legs, allowing him to soar where only one other Stony Brook jumper has been in the 93-year history of the program. His jump is currently the 3rd best in Suffolk County this season, bested only by jumpers from Class AA programs William Floyd and Smithtown East.

Etienne also attained a new best in the triple jump, hopping, skipping, and jumping to a mark of 41′ 9.75″, good enough for 19th in Suffolk County so far. He earned a third individual first place yesterday with a discus throw of 114′ 7″.

Senior Michael Haynes had a personal best distance of 20′ 4.5″ in the long jump, leaving him tied for the 35th best in Suffolk County. He took first in that event as well as in the 110 meter hurdles (17.3) and the 100 meter dash (11.7).

Austin Amadio’s 24.5 in the 200 meter dash rounded out the Bears’ individual winners on the day.
