MONROE-WOODBURY SEIZES THE DAY

Boys, Girls Win OCIAA Track And Field Championships

WARWICK – Death and taxes, right?

That’s the clichéd, exclusive clubs of the only certainties in life, right?

Add Monroe-Woodbury High School girls track and field to that.

Once again the Crusader girls put on a show at the OCIAA Championship Meet, winning their sixth consecutive championship by outdistancing Cornwall.

In fact, it was a clean sweep on the day for Monroe-Woodbury track, as the Crusaders also won the boys meet.

GIRLS
Monroe-Woodbury accumulated 153 points while Cornwall had 79 as the runnerup but, ironically, the Crusaders had only two individual wins. It was their depth that did the trick on a soggy day at Warwick High School.

Lisa Jacobsen of Monroe was the champion of the 100-meter hurdles in 15.39 seconds, and the 1,600-meter relay team of Asya Jeune, Katie Conter, Angela Iaccarino and Emilie Nasca were winners in a time of 4:07.95.

Otherwise, it was strength in numbers. The Crusaders finished second and third in the 200 meters, the 400 and the 400 hurdles, and second in the 1,500, the 2000-meter steeplechase, the pentathlon and the 400 relay.

Washingtonville’s Emily Gerdin was a double individual winner, taking the long jump in 16 feet, 7 inches, and winning the triple jump with a leap of 36 feet, 3.5 inches.

BOYS

Like the girls, Monroe-Woodbury also beat out Cornwall for the title, 124-85.

The Crusaders’ J.P. Incledon and Jermaine Veras went 1-2 in the pentathlon, with Incledon accumulating 2,806 points. Monroe’s Trevor Ladue and Caelen Munsch went 1-3 in the 800-meter run, with Ladue breaking the tape in 1:56.44. Owen Kelly was first in the long jump (20 feet, 6.5 inches) and third in the triple jump.

Cornwall’s Seth Goitia won the 100-dash in 11.11 seconds, nipping Monticello’s Khadeem Richards by three-tenths of a second, and also won the 400. Richards won the 200.

Kingston’s Robert Becker ran to a post-prom victory in the 1,600 for his third consecutive OCIAA title in that event.

Sullivan West’s Michael Mullaly captured both the 110- and 400-hurdles.

And, of course, Burke Catholic’s Mark Przybocki won the shot put and the discus.
