Rocks third at HSR
The Times


WESTFIELD - The Westfield Shamrocks concluded their indoor season with a 3rd place finish at the HSR indoor state championships.

Dainon Wray and Peyton Haack started off the morning for the squad in the 60 meter hurdles. Wray was the top finisher for the Shamrocks with a personal best of 8.43, grabbing an 11th place finish even though he was seeded 24th of 24 competitors coming into the meet. Nolan Rodgers claimed 12th place in the 60 meter dash, just off his season best time.

The first and only state championship of the morning came from the 4 x 800 meter relay of Charles Miller, Desmond Herrell, Nick Leahy, and Aaron Bennett. Miller got off to a good start despite having to deal with several restarts of the race, Herrell ran a lifetime best split of 2:01, Leahy ran a lifetime best split of 1:57 and moved the Shamrocks from 5th place into the lead, and Bennett brought home the state championship, rallying to pass the tremendous relay from Avon in the last 50 meters.

The 4 x 400 meter relay of Haack, Wray, Justin Mamaril, and Miller claimed 2nd place overall, becoming the highest ever Westfield finishers in this event. Haack got off to a tremendous start, Wray ran a lifetime best split by nearly three seconds, Mamaril moved the Shamrocks into the lead with a gutsy performance, and Miller just got outleaned by another tremendous Avon relay. Miller's unofficial anchor split was 49.3 seconds, capping an astounding effort by the fastest indoor 4 x 400 relay in school history.

Mamaril also scored in the pole vault, clearing a season best of 13 feet 6 inches, which was good enough for an 8th place finish -- his second medal of the morning. Rodgers also had a fine performance in the long jump, with a leap of 19 feet 11.75 inches.

Not only is the Shamrocks' third place finish the highest finish in team history, it also the first time the boys have ever finished in the top 5 at this meet.

The Shamrocks are back in action at home on Tuesday, in the inaugural Westfield Invite.
