William Floyd boys varsity track outpaces the competition


The William Floyd High School boys varsity track team under the leadership of head coach Ed Noll recently competed in the League I Championships at the Suffolk County Community College Brentwood Campus and had several athletes secure league titles in their respective events. 

William Floyd High School senior Eddy Vu led the way with victories in the 55-meter and 300-meter races, respectively, and still remains as one of the fastest sprinters in New York State. Senior Jeff Paez ran the fastest 600 of the meet and put forth a championship effort in his events. Senior Evan Rivera medaled in the mile., while Krishmar Powell won the high jump and placed third in the hurdle.  The trio of LaDuke Harris (junior), Dylan Harris (junior) and Justin Cooke (senior) proved once again they are the best jumpers in Suffolk scoring big points in the long jump and triple jump events. The Colonials finished second overall in the League I team standings and were a few points shy of bringing home the title. 

Additionally, Eddy Vu kept the momentum going over the weekend at the Milrose Games held at The Armory in New York City against the top-ranked runners from across the country. Eddy ran the 60-meter dash and had a podium finish, setting the all-time Suffolk County record in the process. He is the fastest Section XI runner ever to compete in these games.
