Kal Lewis on his way to breaking a 22-year-old school record for the 200-meters.
The Shelter Island varsity boys and girls spring track teams had two meets on the calendar this past week. The first was April 1 versus Port Jefferson; the second was April 5 versus Babylon.
At the former meet, junior Kal Lewis did it again — setting a new Shelter Island School record. Lewis broke Dan Fokine’s 22-year-old record for the 200-meter dash with a time of 24.4 seconds. (more…)

Flowers were distributed and a few tears were choked back as seniors and team co-captains Julia Labrozzi and Melissa Frasco began to share the “last” bus ride, at bat, etc., with fellow seniors Amira Lawrence and Domily Gil.
