From the Pee Wee Dash to the Boys Long Jump, children representing eight parish teams competed in the first Developmental Track Meet of season on Sunday, April 14. Two dozen “CYO unattached” runners (CYO children in parishes currently not fielding a track team) joined 225 CYO members on – finally — this perfect, sunny spring day.
They raced and received medals at the top-tier facility Mount St Michael Academy in the Bronx.
CYO has been working hard to provide a great experience for the children of the CYO Track & Field Community. With the addition of clinics with Olympic Athletes and new meets and events in some of the metropolitan region’s top facilities, CYO hopes to build upon the momentum gained over the past year.
Registration is now open for the April 21 CYO Developmental Clinic and Track Meet. It will be held at Mt. Saint Michael Academy, 4300 Murdock Ave., Bronx, NY 10466.
The Iona College track team will be offering a pre-meet clinic for CYO athletes starting at 12:30 pm.
