The Huntington High School spring boys’ track and field team set a new Blue Devil mark for the number of athletes garnering All-County honors in a single season.
Anthony Joseph was one of five Suffolk Most Outstanding Athlete Award recipients.
Ron Wilson said he “couldn’t be any prouder” of his team after the teenagers turned in a sensational overall performance at the Suffolk individual championships at Comsewogue.
The All-County honorees include:
4x100m relay: Julio Martinez, Cameron Santa Maria, Chad Rowe, Tyriek Mays-McKoy
4x400m relay: Jahmar Francis, John Chirico, Quincy Chery, Anthony Joseph and alternates Nick Grover and Joe Shea
4x800m relay: Andrew McKenzie, Aidan Heller, Isaiah Jame, CJ Kiviat and alternates Nikolai Seferian, Carlos Martinez
400m dash: Anthony Joseph
800m run: CJ Kiviat
400m hurdles: Quincy Chery
Anthony Joseph was named one of only five Suffolk recipients of the Most Outstanding Athlete Award. Ron Wilson and Eli Acosta were named Coaches of the Year.
Chery won the 400m hurdles county crown with Kiviat capturing the 800m Suffolk title. The 4x800m relay won the county championship with the 4x100m relay and 4x400m relay both taking second place. Joseph finished second in the 400m dash.
The Blue Devil boys’ track and field program showed that it is also a powerhouse in the classroom as seven Huntington seniors garnered Academic All-County recognition.
Samir Rathore (400m hurdles), Cameron Santa-Maria (4x100m relay), Joe Shea (4x400m relay), Andrew McKenzie (4x800m relay), Aidan Heller (3200m run), CJ Kiviat (800m run) and Isaiah James (800m run) met stringent academic and athletic performance requirements to qualify for the scholar award.
“We are so happy for these fine young men,” Wilson said.
