This past weekend, the Bronxville girls and boys indoor track team competed at the 2023 New Balance National Indoor Track and Field Championship. After winning the Section 1 title in late February, the combined team qualified for states at the Armory, and went on to compete in the NYSPHSAA State Championship the weekend of March 4th. There, the boys team placed 5th in the 4×400 (Davis Patterson, Pierce Patterson, Gavin Benton, and Jaime Valdes), and 6th in the 4×800 (Andrew Jensen, Ellis Goodson, Ian Gegenworth, and Kieran McBride). 

Prior to the post-season, both teams qualified for the national meet and competed on Saturday, March 11th. The boys 4×400 placed 30th in the nation, with a new school record of 3:25.65, and the 4×800 ran an 8:07.5, coming close to their season best. On the girls’ team, the 4×400 (Danielle Dragoni, Kara Kochansky, Mai Ly Reinking, and Juliet Winiecki) placed 15th at Nationals, running a 3:58.54. Other runners from the girls team include Charlotte Murray, Maddy Stupart, Hope Hershberg, Katie O’Hare, and Maddy Williams. 

After a strong finish for the season from both the boys and girls teams, outdoor track and field will start up in the next coming weeks.
