Share post:

The winter track sectionals were held on Friday and Verona High School’s boys team captured first place while the girls team came in second.

Owen Fogarty took first in pole vault, clearing 14′ and Isaac Skrivanic threw for the top spot in shot put. On the girls side, Erin Petrino finished first in pole vault and Veronica Valera was first in the 3200m.

With strong finishes in many events, both teams will now be sending large contingents to the Group championships next weekend.

Eight members of the boys team will be going: Fogarty and Skrivanic, as well as Cole Martin (pole vault), Aidan Murphy (400m), David Navarro (1600m and 800m), Sean Carney (3200m), and Jake McConnachie and Andrew Hunt (high jump).

Ten members of the girls team qualified; Petrino and Valera, plus Jenika Ying (800m), Bridget O’Donnell (1600m and 3200m), Rebecca Katsios (pole vault), Abby Cleary (shotput), and the 4×400 team of Juliana Squilanti, Amanda Caldera, Clara Frizzi, and Olivia Vogel.
