High School Report

by Ryan Woerner

December 24, 2003 - Various schools from Staten Island made their way up to the legendary Armory for the reknowned Bishop Loughlin Games (varsity events) on Saturday December 20th . The Staten Island competitors ran extremely tough, but the top competition from tri-state put their good efforts in the shade. Farrell's Dan Brown ran an impressive two mile clocking in at 10:14, seven seconds faster than last weekends performance at the Relay Carnival. Monsignor Farrell also competed in the 4x800 relay, where they took 6th place with an 8:26 post (beat out St.Peter's 8:29). In the varsity Pole Vault, Farrell's Brian Duggan hit 12'6, which gave him middle of pack placement. Other highlights include the 1000 meter run, where Jonathon Perina posted a 2:44.7, ousting fellow Staten Island harriers John Olsen (2:45.9) and Abraham Marsh (2:45.4), both from Curtis. Also in the Varsity 4x800 relay, Mckee/Staten Island Tech's "A" ran a mediocre 8:49, dropping them in on the verge of Heat 2 last place.

The Frosh/Soph events took place on Sunday, so official results are not yet available. The Loughlin Games were a success for one and all, but better results will come for Staten Island representatives at CHSAA and PSAL meets.
