The 2014 NYCAL season experienced an amazing conclusion and delivered its verdict on Tuesday, May 13, at Riverbanks Stadium. Columbia Prep won the competition, just edging out The Browning School. When we started the season at the end of the winter, only eight boys joined the team. After placing second in 2013 and first in 2012, the Form V co-captains I were rather concerned about what to expect this year. The competition in our league is increasingly difficult, and the qualifications times are very challenging. However, the boys made an excellent appearance and, for the first time in the season, piled up awards and medals Thanks to Coach Wallace for her excellent long jump coaching!)
However, the best was yet to come as we started the three relays: 4x800, 4x100 and 4X400. The Browning boys 4x800 relay team grabbed a more than honorable second place. Another group took home third place in the 4x100 relay, a race in which we had struggled at the beginning of the season. Finally, the high point of this beautiful afternoon was the 4x400. All the runners are strong and were able to shine and bring home the top honor in the 4x400. This win secured a second overall place finish for the Panthers. A great season indeed!
