On this day 18 years ago, several Bears turned in impressive performances at the New York State Track & Field Championships in Liverpool, NY.

Ben Pinder had the highest finish for the Blue & White, taking 2nd in the Class C/D 400 hurdles in a time of 57.37 to earn All-State honors. He also took 7th in the 110 hurdles in 15.94. Jason Cannie also placed for the boys, taking 4th in the triple jump with a leap of 41′ 2.5″.

On the girls’ side, Erva Cockfield took 5th in the shot put (34′ 0.5″) while Lisa Vitolo was 9th in the 3000 (11:20.08).

Pinder still owns the school record in the 110 hurdles (15.04 FAT) while Cockfield continues to hold the shot put (36′ 11.5″) and discus (116′ 11.5″) records.
