Sean Ryan (Babylon, NY) added nine feet to his season’s best and seven feet to his personal best to win the Eastern States Invitational in convincing fasion. Ryan entered the meet with a season’s best only five inches better than Eric Sheng (Syosset, NY), but with a big breakthrough he stood clear from the field. Sheng had to settle for third as Joe Segreto (St. Anthony’s, South Huntington, NY) also added ten feet to his personal best to break 200-feet for the first time. All three boys are coached by Paddy McGrath and Segreto’s personal best marks the 10th athlete coached by McGrath to break 200 feet since the group over the last decade.
Not to be outdone by the boys, Danielle Borriello (Ellenville, NY) improved her season’s best and nearly threw a personal best to win the girl’s competition.
