Running Redbirds Update!
The La Salle Academy Track and Field team has competed in six meets this outdoor season- progressing in leaps and bounds along the way. The Sophomore 4×100 team has run a time of 51.13 seconds as of May 5, 2015, tying us with Cardinal Hayes for the fastest sophmore 4×100 time in The Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island. Not too far behind is our Sophomore B 4×100 meter relay running a time of 52.76 seconds, the fifth fastest time in our section.
Our Varsity sprint squad has been invigorated by the emergence of Senior Varsity Basketball player Stephon Riley. Stephon, this year’s MVP, anchored our 4×200 relay into victory after being behind by 10 meters going into the anchor leg.
This Saturday, May 16, 2015, our Running Redbirds hope to qualify for the city championship track meet in the NY Sectional Championships held at Mount St. Michael High in The Bronx.
