Sprint relay team leads Albany High contingent at state track meet

The Albany High School boys’ 4x400-meter relay team is headed to the state track and field meet after dominating the event in Section II this spring.

 

The team (pictured L-R) of seniors Kevin Mitchell, Jarrell Chaney and Syeed Holtzclaw, and junior Blaize Umuhuza took first place at the state qualifiers at Shenendehowa High School on June 1-2. They also won the event at the Division 1 sectional meet May 23 at Guilderland High School, and at the prestigious William F. Eddy Invitatational on May 20 at Schenectady High School.

 

They will lead Albany High’s contingent at the state meet June 9-10 at Union-Endicott High School near Binghamton. Felix Correa, a junior, is the team’s alternate.

 

Holtzclaw also qualified for states in the 400 meters after winning the event at qualifiers. Holtzclaw also won the 400 at the Eddy meet. Kevin Mitchell finished second in the 400 hurdles at qualifiers and also will compete in that event at states.

 

For the girls’ team, senior Eileen Bequette qualified for the state meet in the pentathlon for the third year in a row. Bequette finished second at state qualifiers by one point – 3,085 to 3,084 – after dominating the five-event competition at the Division 1 meet May 23.
