The William Floyd Colonials girls varsity track team concluded the program’s best season in its history with three second-place finishes at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHAA) 2018 Outdoor Track & Field Championships held this past weekend at Cicero-North High School in Syracuse, NY.
At the competition of the best track and field athletes from across New York State, Kaylah Britt placed second overall in the NYSPHAA Triple Jump with a leap of 38’ 11.5” – a performance that earned the junior All-New York State honors. The 4 x 100 Meter Relay team also took home second place overall in the NYSPHSAA and in the Federation Championship race. The four-member team consisted of Antoinette Miller (senior), Jade Foster (junior), Tatianna Kistner (freshman) and alternate Kylasia Bullard (sophomore) – who filled in admirably for Kianna Hawkins (junior) who strained her hamstring during practice the day before the race. The 100 Meter Relay team finished with a time of 47.15 seconds in the Federation Championship, achieving the second-fastest time ever run by a Suffolk County team, according to head coach, John Ryan.
Additionally, four members of the Colonials were named to the Newsday All-Long Island team for their amazing seasons – Antoinette Miller, Jade Foster, Kianna Hawkins and Tatianna Kistner. The girls track team earned several accolades this year including a State Championship in the 4 x 200 Meter Relay at the NYS Indoor Track & Field Championships in March, dominating performances at the New York Relays, the Loucks Games and more.
