Kyle Cartwright Is NY State Champion

Thursday, 20 June 2013 00:00

It has been another stellar year for Oyster Bay High School sports. The crowning moment came on June 8, when Kyle Cartwright won the State Championship for the Division 2 category of the 400-meter hurdles race. The last time Oyster Bay High School celebrated a state champion track star was 60 years ago when Rick Robinson won the crown. Robinson was the State Champion Long Jumper.  He still holds the school record for that event and is an inductee of the inaugural Class of 2005 in the Oyster Bay High School Athletic Hall of Fame. Robinson wrote a sports column for many years for the Oyster Bay Guardian.

A major component of the educational program in Oyster Bay-East Norwich is the focus on building character as well as academic and athletic abilities.  Character was front and center at the State Championships as well. Kyle Cartwright received recognition for his Sportsmanship throughout the season, and was one of two athletes in Nassau County who received the Sportsmanship award.
