The spring 2012 season has been a very successful few months for the Sachem North boys track and field team.
Highlighted by both team accomplishments and individual achievements, the season which still has a little less than a month to go has had some outstanding moments. Over the last few weeks the team has seen several records fall. Freshman Patrick Lavan the freshman mile record with a blazing 4:46 at the St. Anthony’s Invitational.
One week later, junior Alex Lazarich took to the track in the 800m at the prestigious Loucks Games held at White Plains High School. In the race Alex ran a 1:55.98 and broke the previous school record of 1:56.27 held by former Sachem North standout Frank Fezza.
Alex’s time qualifies him to compete in the New York State Track and Field Championships held in mid-June. Alex will continue his 800m racing this coming Monday at the Suffolk County Division 1 Championships.
This past Wednesday another record fell as sophomore distance runner Anthony Coccia eclipsed the sophomore mile record with his time of 4:34.70 at the Suffolk County Freshman/Sophomore Championships. Anthony placed third overall at the championships and will continue his outstanding season on Monday at the Division 1 Championships.
