Redmen Winter Track Team Succeeds at Championships

The high school’s boys winter track athletes competed in the Section XI Boys Indoor League Championships, held on Jan. 20 at Suffolk Community College in Brentwood in front of an audience that included several alumni from East Islip’s track program.

Individual place winners for the Redmen included senior Anoune Basse, who finished second in the 55-meter dash and second in the long jump; senior Rob Skidmore, who earned third place in shot put; senior Zac Abbate, who took fourth in  high jump; and the 4x200 relay squad of junior Max Castronova and seniors Basse, Mike Drywa and Brian Snyder, who placed third. East Islip’s team finished seventh overall out of 10 teams participating.

“Our alumni came back to cheer the Redmen, and the team was excited and grateful for their loyal support,” said coach Ralph Tubello.
