The Marauder’s track and field team had some strong performances to end their indoor season at the New Balance Indoor Track and Field Nationals held at the New Balance Track and Field Center in New York, N.Y.
The highest finish came from the 4x200m relay squad of Richie Luzzi-Liggins, Gus Nations IV, Ayir Asante and Joey Morrone. They finished sixth overall in 1:29.76, after running a season’s best 1:29.26 in the prelims, to earn All-American honors.
Luzzi-Liggins started things off by breaking the stagger to put us in striking position with Nations IV then receiving the baton and running a strong second led to keep us in the mix. After a botched handoff from other teams, Asante had us in second position coming into the final leg and Morrone then brought the baton home for the marauders, finishing second in the heat and sixth overall.
This is the second prep 4x200m relay team to become All-American in 2 years.
The shuttle hurdle relay squad and 4x800m relay also had strong performances on the national stage.
Adonis McGee, Morrone, Jared Veloso and Maasai Maynor finished 12th in the shuttles with a new school record time of 31.37 while the quartet of Paul Ames, Chris Brooks, Rodolfo Sanchez and Edwin Klanke finished 16th in the 4×800 with a time of 7:56.80.
