Westchester County Meet Preview

Posted Monday, January 26, 2009 by Perry King

Eagles Hunting for Super Places at County Meet
 

The third segment of the Dobbs Ferry indoor track season will get underway on Super Bowl Sunday, February 1, in the morning at the Manhattan Armory. After a 3-week layoff since the Conference 4 League Meet, the Eagles will be looking to pick up a number of places in the competition-within-a-competition structure of the Westchester County Meet. Facing only teams from Westchester, the Eagles have three athletes with decent chances of winning a medal for one of the top 6 places for the individual events in the Open competition for all County schools. But many of the Eagles could also be battling strongly for one of the top 3 places in the County Class C awards.

Dobbs did not attend the meet last year when the Class C was represented in the medals by only 5 or 6 schools in both the boys and girls competitions. in 2008, Bronxville dominated both sides of the action in Class C with the Broncos' Nat Recine and Christian Yoo and Croton Harmon's Max Odland and TJ Hair each winning two events for the boys and the Broncos' Leigh Dannhauser, Hamilton's Tamika Smith, and Croton Harmon's Ruth Bluestone all doubling on the girls side.

Previewing the County Meet is always tough because it is unclear which schools will show up for the meet and which athletes will compete in what events. If the Hackley boys attend this year, they will be favored in 7 events in Class C and super athlete Aaron Konigsberg could easily win the 300 meters, 55 meter hurdles, high jump and long jump. The Hackley girls also have a superstar in Angelique Parnell who has a 5-foot advantage over other Class C jumpers in the long jump and can run the 55 in a blazing 7.3.

The table below provides a general overview of the rankings and prospects for the Eagles going into the County Meet competitions. However, the breakdown for the longer events is hard to determine since runners tend to focus on one event. The Broncos' Dayton Flannery will not run the 1000, 1600 and 3200 in the same meet unless his coach is totally twisted. Likewise, the Eagles' Brendan Wortner will not run those three events unless Coach K is very, very mad at him. The Broncos' girls distance runners also generally run just one of the 1000-1500-3000 distances, but Coach Jim Mitchell often also switches the runners around from their usual events. Also, not even counting the weight throw (not listed in table below) and pole vault, 5 of the boys Class C event top 3 places (including 2 in high jump and 1 in the 3200) went unclaimed as did 13 of the girls places (including 2 in shot put, 3 in triple jump, 2 in long jump, 2 in high jump, and 2 in the 3000) also went begging.

In the Open competition, Dobbs' best shot for a top 6 medal lies with the three Eagles who competed in the Coaches' meet three weeks ago. Ramson Ragin has been adding big distance to his triple jumps meet by meet and at 41-0 he currently stands 6th in the County and would have earned a 3rd in 2008. Pat Wortner's 10:06.3 time in the 3200 meters is currently 8th best in the County, but his chances may be better if he is focusing just on the 3200 as an individual event, and many of the top distance guys likely will be running the 1600 instead. Last year 6th place in the 3200 was a 10:12. Finally, Sarah King is ranked 4th in the 3000 with a time of 10:42.2 which would have won last year's County Meet by 12 seconds. Whether Ursuline's star Katie Sullivan will attempt to double in the 1500 and 3000 again this year remains to be seen.

In the County Class C competition, Ramson Ragin in the triple jump, Pat Wortner in the 3200 meters, and Sofia Maluf in the 1500 Racewalk are all favored going into the meet. Going by this year's results, the Eagles would be favored to take 5 medals for the boys and 4 for the girls. Going into the great unknown of the County event lineups, however, many of the Eagles are perched within one strong performance of a medal. Should be good.
