Hendricken takes second at states

Posted

The Rhode Island OutdoorVTrack and Field State Championships were held this past weekend at Conley Stadium in Providence and many locals made some noise on the big stage.

The Bishop Hendricken boys team won its 26th title with a first place finish. The Hawks finished with 119 points while second-place La Salle finished with 64.

“We have been fortunate the last two years they have well-rounded teams. We had a couple guys that could throw, our sprinters, our jumpers, our distance runners were all outstanding.

It’s rare to have such a strong combination working at once,” said Bishop Hendricken coach Jim Doyle.

Stealing the show for the Hawks was three-sport athlete Brandyn Durand, who won the 200 dash and was part of the 400 relay team’s
victory.

“I can’t say enough about him. How dedicated and committed he was to track both during the indoor and the outdoor season. It was a remarkable success. He was an All-Stater in football, was just named Gatorade Player of the Year for baseball and will probably be All-State there, and he’s All-State for track. He is the best athlete the school has had since Rocco Baldelli. He is thatsignificant of an athlete,”

Doyle said. Also coming up big for Hendricken were the distance runners, the throwers and Matt Maroney in the sixth at 138 pounds.

Bishop Hendricken’s Nick Fine won the 195-pound division, along with
teammate Adolfo Betancur, who won the heavyweight division. Nathan Reid finished second at 182 for Hendricken while Noah Sclama finished second for the Hawks in the 152-pound division.

Matt Maroney took home third place for the Hawks at 145 pounds while teammate Spencer Fine finished third at 160 pounds.

Hendricken’s Dante Silva also placed third at 170 pounds. Tyler Keaney finished fourth for Hendricken at 138 pounds, while teammate Tyler Dellegemine finished sixth at 220 pounds.

Johnston’s Antonio Bracey finished sixth at 152 pounds for the Panthers.
