The J. Taylor Finley Middle School boys’ track and field team turned in another outstanding season, compiling a 5-1 record and showcasing some superb athletes.
The squad was coached by physical education teachers Tim Madden and Christopher Taylor. The Falcons were led by eighth graders Tate Furman, Anthony Amitrano, Collin Garcia and Andrue Nunez Gomez.
“Tate is a very fast runner and a great leader,” Madden said. “Anthony competed successfully in several running events. Collin worked very hard at his craft day after day, evening fighting through a nagging injury. Andreu finished in first place at multiple track meets.”
