The fall 2015 team takes shape

Coach Henning conducted two tryouts for current HSMSE students interested in joining the 2015 Cross Country team. The results were quite gratifying- the cutoff times for the fall team needed to be almost a minute faster than last fall's. The runners at HSMSE are getting very fast indeed in this, the sixth year of our program. To summarize: 

58 current students ran the tryout
26 met their time standard
18 were accepted provisionally

The last group will be placed on the roster once they meet the time standard set by the coach.

Incoming freshman have shown great interest in the Flying Dragons, with ten girls and twenty boys indicating interest in joining at our recent Orientation meeting. There will be room this fall for 10-15 freshman.

Three Outdoor Track athletes qualify for the PSAL City Championships

From Coach Henning:

Today was the last day of Track team practice for 2015, and from 52 athletes in March I'm down to three. These amazing guys qualified to run in the New York City Track & Field Championships this coming Sunday and are my pride and joy: Austin Carvey will be running the 400 meter hurdles, Wayne Chim will be doing the long jump, and Lucian Ramnarase will be running the mile. All have braved bad weather, fierce competition, and the occasional bit of self doubt to become among the best runners in the largest city in America. It's been a privilege to have coached them.
