Wreckers Set New Indoor Track Marks

A senior and sophomore soccer player helped set records at Saturday’s state LL indoor track championship, at Hillhouse High School.

Sean Gallagher was part of of the meet record-setting 4×400 relay.  Last fall’s soccer captain joined with Jonathan Heil, Jack Roche and Raphael Ray, roaring to a 3:29.07 time that beat the 3:29.69 mark set by Hamden last year.  The performance topped the Wrecker team’s own school mark.

Sophomore Walker Marsh ran the opening leg of the 4×800 relay.  He was followed by Roche, Jeff Caffery and Henry Wynne.   They finished 2nd to Hamden by less than 1 second, but their 8:05.38 time established a new Staples mark.

The 4×200 relay also placed 2nd.  That foursome included junior Max Hoberman, and senior George Birch (a former Staples soccer player).

Overall, Staples finished 2nd to Danbury.  The Hatters outscored the Wreckers, 66-53.

Up next:  the state open, this Saturday in New Haven.
