Sentinel boys have depth

TICONDEROGA The Ticonderoga boys indoor track team will not concede a single event this winter. We should be competitive in every event, Coach Walter Thorne said. We have a number of newcomers out for the team, who if they progress as we expect, will make us more competitive with the larger schools in our section. Of course, those newcomers also a weakness. We have 17 first-year athletes out for the team, Thorne said. They need to learn the fundamentals quickly, but they should make an immediate impact on the team. The Sentinels have a strong corps of returning athletes, led by distance runner Lee Berube. Berube won the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class D cross country championship this fall. Also returning are distance runners Jared Best, Brandon Carberry, Alex Durkota, Mike Lonergan, Jarrod Sammis and Eain Tierney. Carberry will also compete in the jumps. Also back are throwers Andrew Burrows, Anthony Contarino, Joseph Guerin, Christopher Maldonado, David Mallon and Michael Thompson along with sprinters David Cook, Jonathan Granger, Dustin LaFrance and Patrick Lonergan. New to the roster are sprinters Michael Barber, Joey Bevilacqua, Kelly Dunn, Frank Jebb, Michael Pockett, Dustin Scott and Dylan Scott along with distance runners Jay Berube, Joshua Cook, Kevin Densmore, Daniel Hermann and Maxwell North. Also new are throwers Francis Cox, Kaleb Bruce, Tyler Bush and Kane OConnor. Assisting Thorne are Jay Wells in the distance events and Phil Kneller in the throwing events.
