STATEN ISLAND, NY – Some would say the sport of Track and Field is all about athleticism and with that athleticism one must use repetition to perfect their specific event.
That is exactly what was on display this past weekend on Saturday, March 4, at Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex in Staten Island for the New York State Indoor Track and Field Championships – pure athleticism and the hard work and repetition that each and every athlete put in throughout the season.
That is what carried these gifted track stars to the state meet – and for two local standouts, they saw solid days on the track come forth.
• Zack Race, Norwich's speedster qualified for the state meet in the 55 meter dash and the 300 meter dash, after posting a state qualifier time of 6.70 seconds and 36.44 seconds, respectively. Race took home a third place finish in the 55 meter dash, while coming in at second in the 300 meter dash.
Fast forward to the state meet and Race, a junior, was up against New York State's premiere sprinters – a possible preview of what is to come in the outdoor track season, which is right around the corner.
Race noted, that through the hard work he has put in, and the coaching support he has received that he made it a point to keep improving on his starts to his races.
