By S. Quinn DeJoy and J. Murrer

Jan. 29, 2020:  It was a weekend of first place finishes, broken records and personal bests for the Bronxville girls’ indoor track and field team. Competing at the Westchester County Championships on Saturday, the Broncos won six of the seventeen events and placed second overall. There were 39 schools of all sizes competing at the meet.

Senior Eve Balseiro won the 600m in 1:34.25, breaking the previous Bronxville school record set by Kaitlin Ryan in 2015 (1:34.86). Balseiro, who will run at Norte Dame in the fall, is now ranked 4th in the U.S. in the 600m. alt

The Bronxville girls’ made a statement by sweeping all the relays at counties.

“It is believed that this is the only time that one team has ever won all three relays at the indoor county championships,” noted Coach David Ryan.

The 4x200 relay, Ircha, Koenig, Weild, and Alisa Kanganis, won in a time of 1:46.24, and the 4x400 relay, Sabrina Mellinghoff, Betsy Marshall, Kanganis and Ava Black won in a time of 4:07.28. Marshall, Maeve Sullivan, Maddy Stupart, and Black won the 4x800m in 9:47.68.

While historically the Bronxville girls’ relay teams always do well, the Broncos also came up big in field events at counties. Millie Koenig won the long jump in 17-3, setting a new school record.

Jules Gravier, who just keeps setting records in the pole vault, placed second at counties with a height of 10-6. The following day at the Bulls Invitational, Gravier won the event, breaking the school record for the 5th time this season with a vault of 11-0. In the high jump, Marielle Dibbini placed 7th (4-6).

The 1000m run was a competitive race with the top four girls finishing within a half a second of each other. Bronxville’s Ava Black placed fourth in 3:00.01, while the first place finisher from New Rochelle, Kaitlin Casas, crossed the line in 2:59.46. It was a personal best for Black, who improved her time by more than four seconds.

New Rochelle won the county title by scoring 89 points; Bronxville followed with 78. It was New Rochelle’s 12th consecutive county championship.

The boys’ team also had some noteworthy performances. Connor Randall placed 5th in the 300m (37.18), and in the 1600m, John Ryan placed 7th (4:38.55), a season best time.

The boys’ 4x200m relay, Connor Randall, Henry Donohue, PJ Krestinski, and Eric Fleisi, placed 4th in 1:36.82, also a season best time.

Go Broncos.
