Bay Shore boys, girls set meet records


For one day, Bay Shore’s boys and girls track teams made North Rockland their second home.

The Marauders set meet records in both the boys 400 hurdles and the girls 400 hurdles earlier today in the Red Raider Relays at Warwick, proving that the road to the state crown in that event could pass through Bay Shore this year.

Kadesh Roberts clocked a Long Island-best 54.30 in the boys 400 hurdles to shatter a 19-year-old meet record. The time is also third-best in the state. Roberts, who is the defending champion in the event, also anchored the third-place 4x400 relay to earn the meet’s Most Outstanding Male Track Athlete award.

On the girls side, Jessica Gelibert broke a meet record in the very same event, posting a state-best 60.96 to win the event. She also won the 100 hurdles in 14.77 seconds and was the anchor leg for the winning 4x400 relay (3:56.90).

The records highlighted an otherwise strong overall performance by both teams. Angel Rosario won the boys discus with a throw of 159-3, Jamari Lawrence finished second in the triple jump (43- 8 1/2), Kareem Roberts took third in the high jump (6-0) and Stanley Constant was third in the shot put (50-6). Meanwhile, Imani McGhee won the girls triple jump with a jump of 37-2 and finished second in the long jump (17-5), and Danielle Rowe finished second in the 800 in 2:16.83.
