Falcons Headed to State Track and Field Championships

Students pose on the track
Senior David Fernandez and sophomore Nina Cialone have each earned a chance to compete at the New York State Track and Field championships at Cicero North High School in Syracuse, New York on June 8-9.
 
David earned his spot on the Nassau County state team in both the discus and shot put. Competing in the Nassau County qualifier, David placed first in the discus with a throw of 121 feet, 2 inches and first in the shot put with an outstanding throw of 45 feet, 3.5 inches. David’s performance came on the heels of being named Class A county champion in the shot put and placing second in the county in the discus. This will be the second consecutive year David competes in the state championships, as he made his first appearance last season competing in the shot put.
 
Sophomore Nina Cialone will compete in the state championships after qualifying in the triple jump with a career-best jump of 36 feet, 2.75 inches. As a sophomore, Nina has established herself as one of the top jumpers in Nassau County this season in both the triple jump and long jump. Nina recently placed second in both events at the Nassau County Class A championships.
 
We would like to wish David and Nina the best of luck in the upcoming state championships. Go Falcons!
