High School Track & Field: Staten Islanders excel in the PSAL Night at the Sprints

Mckee/S.I. Tech’s Jessica Szela was an easy winner in the invitational 1,500-meter race walk in the PSAL Night at the Sprints meet, crossing the finish line in an uncontested time of 7 minutes, 36.04 seconds Friday night at the New Balance Armory Track and Field Center, in Manhattan.

Szela, the Island record holder (7:29.71), trailed eventual silver medalist Sophia Mahin of Townsend Harris for two laps on the 200 meter oval before taking charge and never relinquishing the lead. Mahin fell off pace after 800 meters and finished in 7:55.35. Stuyvesant’s Luo Qi Kong was third in 8:11.52.

Teammate Sarah Tress also walked into the winner’s circle, taking the pole vault on fewer misses over Szela with a measure of 7 feet, 6 inches.

In the freshman shot put, New Dorp’s Dadrian Givans (23-0.25) and Susan Wagner’s Lucresse J. Tato (20-5.25) finished first and second, respectively.
