On Monday, February 12, the Suffolk County Public High School Individual Championships were held at Suffolk Community College’s Brentwood Campus.
The Individual Championships, which is essentially the County Championships, are also known as the State Qualifiers because the season all comes down to one race — this race — to decide who goes to the New York State High School Championships. The New York State Championships bring together public and private high schools statewide.

Senior Lindsey Gallagher qualified for the 600 meter run, senior Joshua Green qualified for the 1,000 meter run and sophomore Kal Lewis qualified for the 1,600 meter run. (more…)
