Congratulations to Abby Kowalczyk and Connor Hitt for placing 1st and 2nd, respectively, at the Section 1 State Qualifier Meet at Bowdoin Park. They will both represent Ketcham at the State Meet at Vernon-Verona-Sherill HS.
Both Abby and Connor achieved personal bests on the famed course, which are also course bests for RCK.
Although the rest of the athletes failed to qualify, the season ended on a high note for most by achieving a personal best for the course. Great job!
Congratulating Connor and Abby at the Bowdoin meet was Wappingers Central School District Board of Education President John Lumia. Mr. Lumia is a former RCK Cross Country coach who led RCK's Marisa Sutera-Strange, the school's first female runner to the NYS Championships in 1980.
