Boys Track and Field Kicks Off the Outdoor Season

The Sequoit boys track and field team traveled to Grant Community High School for the first outdoor meet of the season on April 2. The boys started off the season strong with a win against the Bulldogs and several of the boys placed, which helped the team gain more points overall.

In field events, senior Matthew Becker came in first place for shot put, senior Chase Becker placed first for discus, and junior Tyler Oslage placed first in pole vault. In running events, junior Charlie Smith came in first place for the 800 meter race, junior Treshawn Watson came in first place in the 110 high hurdles and sophomore Dino Kaliakmanis won the 300 meter hurdles.

“Lots of kids stepped up to do events they don’t usually run,” Watson said. “Our coaches were not worried about winning this meet, they just wanted to figure out everyone’s place.”

In the 4×200 relay, sophomores Gavin Calabrese, Khalil Anderson and Matthias Madigan, and senior Benjamin Nauman took home first place. Seniors Zachary Grindley and Robert Christiansen, junior Ryan Shaputis, and D. Kaliakmanis came in first place in the 4×100 relay. Grindley also came in first place in the triple jump and accomplished a state qualifying high jump of 6’3”.

“Hitting the state qualifying height in high jump feels amazing,” Grindley said. “Knowing I can reach that height really boosts my confidence.”

The boys track and field team had an amazing first outdoor meet and they are eager to carry the success to their invitational this Saturday, April 6 at Niles West High School.
