Ticonderoga eyes CVAC honors

TICONDEROGA - Ticonderoga has its sites set on the Champlain Valley Athletic Conference boys track championship this spring.

"I expect our team to be right in the mix," Coach Walt Thorne said.

The Sentinels have 21 athletes back from a year ago.

Veterans in the sprints and jumps include Michael Barber, Luke Bartlett, Garrett Cooper, Kelly Dunn, Jonathyn Granger, Jay Hebert, Ken Johnson, Patrick Lonergan, Nathan McLaughlin, Arto Nadeau and Jesse Perkins.

New sprinters and jumpers are Ryan Borho, Riley Chapman, James Cooks, Jacob Demarais, Coleman Granger and Nick Mars. Borho will also throw.

Distance and middle distance events will feature returnees Jay Berube, Joshua Cook, Kevin Densmore, Javeed Nazir and Cody Vickroy.

Throwers returning to the club are Corey King, Karney manning, Wesley Porter, Josh Ross and Dennis Townes.

Steven Bussey, Taylor Coffin and Barnard Jordan are rookie throwers.

"Team balance will be our biggest strength, and with 12 new athletes out for outdoor track we should be in pretty good shape this season," Thorne said. "Michael Barber, Jonathyn Granger, Luke Bartlett, Kelly Dunn, Jay Hebert, Jesse Perkins will leads the sprinters and jumpers. Jay Berube, Joshua Cook and a emerging Kevin Densmore and Patrick Lonergan will lead the distance and middle distance events. Joss Ross will lead the throwers along with the new comers, who if they progress quick enough should provide much-needed points by season's end."

Assisting Thorne with the coaching duties are Jay Wells in the distance events, Phil Knellor in the throws, Ellie Berube in the sprints and Rock Merrill in the jumps.
