Indoor Track

The Varsity Indoor Track team traveled to West Point on Saturday for the Section IX Class B Championship. This meet included all the “smaller” schools in Section 9 from Port Jervis to Chapel Field.

Although the Liberty girls had only seven competitors each athlete stepped up to try to score for the team. The girls were able to hold on to third place until the end of the meet when they dropped to fourth scoring an incredible 45 points!

Brianna Roth was section champion in the pole vault and leapt to second in the high jump. Brooke Roth was second in the long jump, fourth in triple jump and sixth in the 55 hurdles. Alexandra Riley and Sydneigh Fleischman placed second and third in the 1500 meter walk.

Unfortunately, the boys did not fair as well with most athletes recording subpar performances. The team scored only three points and finished next to last in the standings. Miguel Campos was  the only boy able to score points. Miguel placed fifth in the 600 and fifth in the 1000.

Several athletes have met the standard to compete in the Section IX state qualifying meet on Friday, February 22 at West Point. These athletes must wait for the seed meeting on Wednesday to find out if they can attend the meet.
