Dante, Chris set records at Rochester Relays
BK comes home with a 3rd place and two 8th place finishes
Improving is not always about a personal best time or winning an event. Improving is measured in any positive change, however small, that leads you to becoming the student athlete you want to be.Its been at least four years since Bishop Kearney Track and Field has competed in the famous Rochester Relays. We were able to compete in several events this year due to the quality of our athletes and size of our team. A meet unlike any other meet of the season, the Rochester Relays brings Class C and Class D athletes together to compete in each event as a team or relay. Times and distances of each athlete are combined to determine final results of each event.
BK athletes took on the challenge of this highly competitive meet in several events; girls 4x200 meter, boys 55 meter, boys shot put, and boys 4x200/400/800.
