National Scholastic Indoor Championships
They knew they were going up against one of the best hurdle teams ever in Sheepshead Bay, but Coach Febles' charges had eyed this date since the season started in the fall. And like every Prep runner, they had a rich history on their side. Andrew Hemmings, Ed Allison and Bruce Grant kept it close, and when Wayne Seaton crossed the line just .03 ahead of their Brooklyn rivals, the Prep faithful erupted. A NEW NATIONAL RECORD of 29.15 (old record was 29.24 by Metuchen HS ion 1972) now belongs to the Rams!
Tantalizingly close to another National title only 3 hours later, the Sprint Medley Relay of Seaton, Grant, Zach Keefer and Mike Jennings just missed minting rings of their own, but set a new CHSAA record in the event, taking 2nd in the Nation. Seaton led off in first place in 22.3, Grant handed off a close 2nd in 22.5, Keefer motored into first place with a 49.1 second 400m, and Mike Jennings ran his best 800m of the season (1:55.8) but just got edged down the straightaway. Their time of 3:29.87 breaks Bishops Loughlin's CHSAA indoor record of 3:30.90, set in 2001. Andrew Hemmings long jumped a respectable 20'10.75", and the 4x400 just missed the final (Grant 53.1, Petrovich 50.1, Rivera 51.6, Keefer 49.5 3:24.45). The history pages are crowded in Fordham Prep lore, but new stories were added this weekend and there are still two exciting days to go!

Wayne Seaton takes 3rd place in the Pentathlon to earn his 3rd All-American etching, and as top finisher from New York State, lays claim to unofficial title of "top athlete in the state". And his gaudy score of 3644 may be a CHSAA record--the 4th record Wayne is a part of.
Jon Annunziata smashes 50 foot barrier! His toss of 50'7.25" is best at Prep since Mike Sangobowale in 2001 and first shot put over the half century mark in the "Phipps Era". Congrats to Pupil and Coach!
Ramzy Salem put
up some nice numbers in the Pent, including an 18'1" LJ,

72nd Eastern States
Champs - Armory
Wayne Seaton had a 10 page paper hanging over his head on Tuesday night, but before he got to typing, he rewrote two school records in the space of 45 minutes. His 7.47 for the 55m high hurdles lowered the school and Sectional Record, and his 22.24 in the 200 meter trials (run in difficult lane 2) also lowered his own school record (22.57 at last year's Easterns). Wayne headlined a great meet for the Prep that saw Bruce Grant join Wayne in the hurdle finals, twice racing to PRs of 7.65 and 7.63. The traditionally "stacked" event at Easterns is always the Distance Medley, and the Prep's squad held it's own, medalling in a fast 10:26.85. Mike Jennings anchored in a personal best 4:22.4. In the "nice prep for states" category, Anthony Carr pole vaulted 13'6" and Andrew Hemmings triple jumped 43'3.25". And Zach Keefer ripped his 8th sub 50 second 400m of the season.....49.60
- CHSAA Intersectional Champs..."The Cities" - Armory
Rams repeat as CHSAA Indoor Champions by virtue of a complete team effort. 54 points more than doubles 2nd place team, and is the highest total scored at the Cities since Loughlin scored 54 in 1982, and the biggest margin of victory (30pts) since 1960! The Prep will send an unprecedented 9 athletes to the State Championships next month. New! Cities Story by A Friend of the Prep!
Triple Jump: Andrew Hemmings earns Meet MVP for field events with 44'8" win and 21'2" LJ silver
High Jump: Jourdan White wins his 5th CHSAA HJ title with a 6'2" clearance, then LJs to 4th place with 20'9" leap.
55mHH: Wayne Seaton and Bruce Grant BOTH dip under the 29 Year Old Meet record, going 1-2 in 7.60 and 7.66. Ed Allison takes 6th, breaking 8 seconds for the first time (7.96)
600m: Zach Keefer pulls off spectacular come from behind win, breaking Conrad Dalton's school record with a 1:20.90 effort. New! 600m Video added!
1000m: Mike Jennings takes 3rd in fast 2:31.45, just missing Rey Mendez' 1993 school mark of 2:31.07
Pole Vault: Anthony Carr gets silver, leaping 13'6" and Keegan Talty clears 13'0" for 4th place
Shot Put: Mike Seminario takes 4th place in new school Soph record of 48'9.25", and Joe Paulus continues Soph wunderkind success, making final with 45' effort. Ryan Fedak, Kyle Willemite and Paul Perez are newly minted 40 footers, earning throwers a team dinner. (There goes the budget.....)
And the 4x800m Relay nailed it shut. In all 8 team titels the Prep has won this decade, tehy've only won one relay title....until today. When the Millrose quartet of Harley Griffiths, Petrovich, Jennings and Keefer narrowly miss meet record, racing to 7:56 victory
And just as key: Seniors Anthony Rivera and Ramzy Salem run valiant 4x400 legs before becoming victims of questionable disqualification call; Tom Jennings PRs with 10:05 3200m; Senior Tom Riley and Frosh Greg McNamara become newest sub-five milers; James Gallo wins Novice 1600m run in school novice record 4:45.14; Frosh Andrew Velasquez, Pat Gray, Gio Graziosa and Dennis Kennelly; Berent Kowarick vaults 12', then joins Tony Rosa, Doug O'Connell and Mike McNamara on 2nd fastest Soph 4x800 in Prep history
What a day!
