Lebanon @ Warwick

Boys: Lebanon 78, Warwick 72

Lebanon traveled to Warwick to start their 2nd straight season that will be spent entirely on the road after a sinkhole dashed hopes of having any home meets. The Cedars were in the midst of a losing streak, having won their last meet in 2019. Not only does the home track situation complicate things, but Covid helped to wipe out the program’s momentum. Another issue was that ahead of the 2023 season, Lebanon moved to the meatgrinder, which is Section 1. However, Coach Pearson has always seen the move as a benefit as his athletes now see higher-level competition every week. They had a chance to prove themselves against the Warriors.

In the Sprints, Jalik Hill won the 200m (23.32) & 400m (52.57). Ramon Urena Batista won both the 800m (2:02.92) & 1600m (4:27.15). Lebanon’s Nate Trace won the 300m IM Hurdles (46.32), with Derek Infante picking up a critical 2nd place finish in the 110m High Hurdles (19.84). On the track, Lebanon started the day by picking up a huge win in the 4x800m relay to start the meet with Gavin Sheetz, Owen Kreider, Tyler Long and Bastista, running an 8:41.77 to take the five crucial points.

In the Jumps, Eddie Ferrer led Cedar sweeps in the Long Jump (19’4.5”), Triple Jump (40’4”), and High Jump (5’8”). In the Discus, Mayhkye Cortes notched a victory with a throw of 106’.

With several close competitions throughout the meet, Lebanon’s athletes were able to dig deep to earn themselves an impressive 78-72 win.

After the meet, Coach Tommy Pearson told, “Our senior leaders on the track, Jalik Hill and Ramon Urena, did as expected and picked up wins in their respective individual events, 200/400 and 1600/800, but I think it was the field events that really made the difference for us. Mahkye Cortes had a huge day in the throws for the team, picking up a first and two seconds. I thought we would score well in the jumps, but I did not expect a sweep in all three. Eddie Ferrer’s three first places in the three jumps were also a nice surprise. I thought Nate Trace put the team first by sacrificing some energy and strength for the triple jump to run the 300 hurdles, which he won in the last stretch, edging the Warwick runner by .15. I’m fortunate to work with some really good assistant coaches that had their event crews ready to roll.”

He went on to talk about the resolve of his athletes: “I’m just really proud of and happy for this group. No one on this team has experienced a Varsity dual meet win. They have battled plenty of adversity the last two years, practicing without a proper facility, which makes the jumps sweep even more remarkable. I’m always one who thinks, “Well, we can do this better, or we can improve here or there,” regardless of how fast we run or perform. Yes, I think there are plenty of areas of growth that we can improve upon as the rest of this year progresses, but it was pretty darn satisfying seeing those young men enjoy a victory yesterday.”
