Track Tops Mercy in Opener

April 5, 2018
G Track 2018

Barbacena practices earlier this season (PC: Caitlyn O’Neill)

This afternoon the girls’ track team opened the season with a 82-43 victory over Mercy. The meet finally went off after being postponed three different times due to inclement weather and the Bears made the most of their first competition.

Despite bitter temperatures made worse by a biting wind, the girls competed with heart and achieved several impressive performances. Francine Leung led the way for the Bears with 16 points, powered by victories in the long and triple jumps.7th-grader Niamh Scanlon, in her first meet, earned 12 points, highlighted by a victory in the high jump. Also competing in her first meet with the Bears, 8th-grader Oluchi Chukwuemeka earned wins in the discus and shot put to lead a strong performance in the throws. Diana Barbacena placed in three events to earn 11 points for the Brook.

The Bears are back in action on April 10th in a home meet with Babylon.
