2015 STATEN ISLAND CHAMPIONS!!

1/25 - NYC CHSAA Champs - Armory

     STATEN ISLAND CHAMPIONS

              * 1998 * 1999 * 2010 * 2015

1/17 - Staten Island Champs - Armory
The Vikings scored an impressive team victory for our first S.I. title since 2010 and our 4th overall. We scored in 15 out of 15 events. Junior Nick Velez earned the Track MVP award after a win in the 1000 and and a hard fought 2nd place and personal record in the 1600...after only 1 hour of rest. Joe Somma upsets the field in the 300 with 2 monster races. Garth Ikomi was crowned the Fastest Male in Staten Island off of his win in the 55 meter dash. Brandon Prato, the #4 seed going into the shot put, had a tremendous day with a 3 foot PR in the shot put en route to the win! The 4x800 ran competitive and on a big anchor leg by freshmen Michael Kieran, who raced like a veteran, nailed the victory.  Click for an event-by-event summary & analysis.

  SHOCKER IN THE 4x800 RELAY
Sea qualifies for the Millrose Final

2015 Millrose Games Qualifiers
Rob Ruspantini, Nick Velez, Robbie Guidicipietro, Mateo Velez

1/14 - Millrose Trials - Armory
SHOCKER!
After barely qualifying for the seeded section of the 4x800 trials; the Varsity 4x800 pulls off a shocker with a top 6 finish while punching their ticket to the 108th Millrose Games. Rob Ruspantini led off the relay in the thick of the race with a 2:03.6 carry. Nick Velez posted a PR of 1:57.3 while moving the team closer to the leaders but more importantly opening up a gap on the 7th & 8th teams. Robn Guidicipietro ran a PR of 2:04.9 to keep the team in the top 6 on the 3rd leg. Mateo Velez, who just over a year ago went for open heart surgery ran a PR of 2:07.8 to hold off a fast charging Molloy runner. The team's 8:13.83 FAT represents a seasonal best by over 8 seconds.
The 4x200 relay raced well and smashed the school record by 1 full second. Unfortunately, the relay would just miss out on a Top 6 qualifying position. It took a blazing fast 1:32.84 FAT to qualify for the Millrose Games.

1/10 - Hispanic Games - Armory
It wasn't pretty but the Varsity 4x8 garners a spot in the "seeded section" at the Millrose 4x800 Trials by way of a seasonal best of 8:21.26 FAT. Junior Michael DiBiase jumps 12'-0" in the PV which earned him a 6th place medal. Brandon Prato sets a PR in the shot with a 44'-1.5" toss. Tom Geoghegan hops, skips & jumps his way to a 38'-9" PR in the TJ.

1/9 - NYCHSAA Sectional Champs - Fordham University
Kyle Sinclair breaks his PR by 1 foot (38'-8.75") en route to a Soph Sectional & NYC Championship in the triple jump. He would later add a 3rd place in the Sectional 55 HH. Peter Trapanese threw 36'-6" which was good enough for 6th place.

1/3 - CHSAA Novice & Junior Weight Champs - Armory
The Vikings ring in the new year with some solid performances & hard earned medals.

12/27 - Boston Holiday Challenge - Boston, MA
Competing in Boston for the first time since 2009; the team has a really nice showing. Nick Velez took 3rd place in the 1000 with a personal best of 2:35.75 FAT. His time is currently in the Top 10 in NY State. Robbie Guidicipietro, recovering from the flu, runs a PR in the 2mile with a 6th place time of 10:08.21 FAT. Joe Somma earned a 5th place medal in the LJ with a jump of 19'-7.75" The team earns medals in all 3 relays: 4x200 (5th place), 4x400 (6th place) and 4x800 (4th place). Thanks to our great alumni for helping out at this meet: Frank DeLeo '13, Alex Gargiso '13, Alex Rosenbauer '13 & Sam Mondello '13. We'd also like to thank the Cardona, Mahoney, Velez & Guidicipietro families for traveling up to Boston & cheering on our team!


12/20 - Bishop Loughlin Games - Armory
After 16 years, the Varsity 4x200 record is broken by Joe Somma, Garth Ikomi, Jordan Daniels & James Mahoney. The impressive part is the guys weren't fresh as most guys were in their 2nd or 3rd event.  Somma earler had jumped over 20 feet for the first time in the long jump.

12/13 - CHSAA Relay Carnival - Armory

The 2014-2015 indoor season kicks off with some impressive performances across the board. Frosh Michael Kieran gets things kicked off with a 1st place medal in the Frosh 1600. The Soph 4x400 relay earn 3rd place medals. The Varsity SHR runs well as all 3 men set a PR en route to a 4th place finish.  The Varsity 4x800 runs solid with PR's by Robert Guidicipietro, Rob Ruspantini & James Mahoney. They would earn 5th place medals. The Varsity LJ Relay squeaks out a 5th place medal as Joe Somma & Tom Geoghegan combine to jump 36'-9.25". The Varsity HJ Relay of Jordan Daniels earn silver medals. Brandon Prato sets a PR in the Varsity Shot and Pole Vaulter Michael DiBiase ties his best jump by clearing 12'-0". In the weight events, the team wins the Sub-Midget & Junior Weight 4x200 relays. Bronze medals were earned by the Midget 4x200 relay and Junior Weight 4x200 "B" teams. Mateo Velez breaks 2:10! Garth Ikomi runs 23.0! A total of 50 PR's were set and 25 medals earned on the day!
