Huntington’s boys’ and girls’ track teams flexed their muscles at the Millrose Games trials at the New Balance Track & Field Center at the Armory in Manhattan.
Sophomore Jahmar Francis, senior Quincy Chery, junior Matteo Armstrong and senior anchor Julio Martinez won the 4x400m relay trials in a time of 3:29.30, which currently ranks the Blue Devils as No. 1 on Long Island and among the state leaders, said head coach Ronald Wilson
Huntington entered a second 4x400m relay team and it, too, qualified for the Millrose Games. Juniors Kender Edouazin, Nick Grover and Nick Seferian and sophomore David Dje Bi finished fifth in a time of 3:42.80 to also qualify for the Millrose Games finals.
The Blue Devil girls were equally magnificent, winning their 4x400m relay heat in 4:07.53. Senior Olivia Conte, junior Megan Donaghy, senior Analisse Batista and freshman Elizabeth James swept around the track four times in blazing speed to qualify for the Millrose Games.
“We are getting healthy at the right time,” head coach Onix Salva said. “Our kids did a tremendous job of competing and they earned a trip to the Millrose Games.”
The Huntington girls’ 4x400m relay is currently ranked No. 3 in the state.
Both Blue Devil teams are getting primed for the league, county and state championships along with several invitationals.
