Le Roy's boys winter track and field are the 2018 Section V champions a year after missing the title by one point.

Clayton Allen finished sixth in the 1,000 meter with a career personal record after being seeded 10th.

Ryan Driscoll finished fourth in the 3,200 meter with a career personal record that was 14 seconds faster than his indoor PR and 7 seconds faster than his outdoor PR.

Maxin Mckenzie finished second in the mile before anchoring the 4 x 800 team with Clayton, Ryan, and Jacob Montoya. The boys team ran their fastest time of the season -- and the fastest time of the past two seasons.

Jordan Stephens ran an official career personal record in the 3,200.

Bryce Bordonaro threw for a personal record in the shot put to finish sixth overall after being seeded ninth and then went on to finish third in weight throw.

Tom Mellon finished fourth in the weight throw, joining Marshall Schultz with a fourth-place finish in shot put.

Ethan Roy finished third in the pole vault, while Ethan Pocock finished sixth -- both equaled their indoor personal records.

Gaven Cassidy set personal records in the 600 and 55m Hurdles on his way to a pair of second-place finishes. His 600 came up .04 away from the school record. He then finished fourth in the 300.

Athletes of the Meet:

  • Gavin Luckey finished second in the triple jump with a career personal record before winning the high jump with another career personal record. He then picked up a fourth place finish in the long jump with his third personal record of the day.
  • Collin Stauffer started the meet with a fourth-place finish in the 55 meter after being seeded seventh before his first-place finish and one-foot career personal record in the triple jump. He then finished third in the long jump with a near-personal record.

Seniors Gavin Luckey, Gaven Cassidy and Ethan Roy won their second title in four years as freshman members of the 2015 team.

The boys team won for the fifth time since the first indoor title in 2008, and the 10th title in Le Roy Track & Field History (boys / girls / indoor / outdoor).
