Engstrom Wins Steeplechase At Suffolk Coaches Meet


It was a rather quiet spring break for both the East Hampton boys and girls track teams. The Lady Bonackers went to the Joe Brandi Relays at Connetquot High School on Saturday, while the Bonackers competed at the Suffolk Coaches Meet at Commack High School, also on Saturday.

Engstrom Wins Steeplechase

The Bonackers didn’t bring a large contingent to the Suffolk Coaches Meet due to many of their athletes being away on vacation. But the athletes who showed up on Saturday did well.

Erik Engstrom won the open 3,000-meter steeplechase, in 10:13.31. Thomas Paradiso placed fourth in the freshman/sophomore 800-meter run, in 2:09.79. Adam Cebulski finished the open 1,600-meter race with a personal-best time of 4:39.10, which placed him 12th overall.

Chujvaughn Cameron finished 10th in the freshman/sophomore 100-meter dash with a personal-best time of 12.17 seconds. Cameron also finished the 200-meter dash in a personal-best 24.37 seconds.

Girls At Joe Brandi

Almost all events are run in relay format at the Joe Brandi Relays, except for the 400-meter intermediate hurdles, the 100-meter high hurdles, and the 2,000-meter steeplechase, which are all run in pairs.
