A few Wayne County athletes will be attending this weekend’s New York State Indoor Track Championships at Cornell University. Marion’s Brandon VanderBrook and McKenzie Sturtz and Newark’s Jeremy Hassett qualified Friday at the Section 5 meet of champions at Rochester Institute of Technology.

VanderBrook took second place in the 55-meter dash with a time of 6.48, a new school record to qualify. Sturtz took second in the high jump with a leap of 5-feet, 5-inches, another school record. It’s Sturtz’s first time going to states. Black Knight Ian Gillens set a school record in the shot put (48-0), but didn’t meet the state standard.

Hassett finished third in the 1,000 to qualify with a time of 2:34.65.

No Palmyra-Macedon athletes qualified for the state championships, but a few school records were set. The girls 4x800 relay team of Marisa Yonker, Rachel Rowles, Marie Black, and Devon Donatello set a record with a time of 10:21.35. Valerie VanHoesen broke a school record in the hurdles (9.27). Allie Phillips tied the school record in the 55 (7.44).
