League Track Meets

Ryan Fowkes placed third twice at the league track meet Friday at Suffolk Community College-Brentwood, in the 1,600 and 1,000-meter races. He ran the 1,600 in 4 minutes and 37.08 seconds, and ran the 1,000 in 2:48.39. 

Ben Turnbull, the boys team’s coach, said that Matt Maya placed third in the 55-meter hurdles, in 8.82 seconds, a personal best, and that he had placed eighth in the long jump, with a leap of 18 feet 101/4 inches.

Yani Cuesta, the coach of the girls, said Ava Engstrom placed eighth in the 1,500, in 5:24.32, that Mimi Fowkes placed seventh in the 1,500-meter racewalk, in 9:34.66, and that Lily Minskoff placed 11th in the 300, in :47.11, and 12th in the long jump, at 14-4, a personal best. The fourth member of the team, Bella Espinoza, was sidelined that day because of an illness, Cuesta said.

 

Round-Robin Wrestling

Anthony Piscitello, East Hampton High’s wrestling coach, said he took about half his team to a round-robin meet at Port Jefferson Saturday, given the fact that “about five or six” of his charges were out with the flu.

Caleb Peralta, at 120 pounds, and Andreas Koutsogiannis, at 195, won all three matches they wrestled. The latter won two matches by technical fall and one by pin. Cole Shaw went 2-1 at 132 pounds, and Ben Baris, while 0-3, “should get a lot of credit,” said Piscitello, “for competing despite having been wiped out by the flu recently.”

“The matches went quickly — we were out of there by 12:15,” the coach said.

The league meet, he added, is to be this Saturday at Comsewogue. He’ll take “the whole team, at least 12 guys.”
