Track Teams Runners-Up at PSAA Championships

On Thursday afternoon, a gorgeous May day was the backdrop for the 32nd Annual PSAA Track & Field Championships, held for the third time in four years on the Marvin W. Goldberg Track.

This year’s championship marked the return of the Dalton School, which had not competed in the event since 2019. The Tigers brought depth at every event and won both the boys’ and girls’ titles, but the Bears turned in numerous memorable performances and saw a slew of personal records fall.

The boys crowned seven individual champions along with one relay, led by David Song’s three titles in the 110 hurdles, 400 hurdles, and triple jump that earned him meet boys’ MVP honors. Nick Zemitis was a double winner in the long jump and high jump, and his 6′ 0″ mark in the latter was one of the highlights of the afternoon. Klod Berdica (shot put) and Zach Mogambi (discus) power Bear sweeps in the throws, and Tony Ying, Nick Candela, Mogambi, and Zemitis joined forces to win the 4×100 relay. On the girls’ side, Lilly Keegan repeated as the league high jump champion with a height of 4′ 8″.

The girls racked up 158 points to best Long Island Lutheran (16), Lexington (12), and Kew-Forest (7) and trail only Dalton (272). The boys’ results came down to the final few events as Dalton finished with 217 to edge the Bears (211) who easily distanced themselves from Kew-Forest (24), Long Island Lutheran (9), and Martin Luther (9).

Several individuals will now continue on to the 23rd Annual NYSAIS Championships which will be held on May 25 at Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island.
