The highlight of the day was the St. Patrick’s mile. St. Patrick’s own Christopher Langer was able to win the mile holding off his competition with a very impressive final 800. Other highlights were the 4th grade sprint medley team of Victoria Ghillani, Megan Guy, Emma Riveri and Cailey Welsh who took second competing as 6th graders, first-place finish for the 2nd grade 200M relay team of Ryan Guy, Adrien Brunelle, Luke Capabianco and Adan O’Connor and a 3rd place finish for the 5th grade 300M medley team of Joseph Schmitt, Bailey Danseglio, Peter Vaccaro and Max Lawson.
