Boys Track Picks Up League Win

Sean Foley loves to compete in athletics, so one can only imagine how disjointed he felt while spending six-plus months on the disabled list.

Foley, a star lineman, suffered a severe injury to his right shoulder in late September and missed the rest of the football season. He also was forced to sit out the basketball campaign and there were no guarantees he'd be able to resume his shot put duties in .

Wednesday, PC track hosted SCH Academy.

Take a guess . . . Which athlete won the shot put?

Right, you are! Sean Foley. He's the same guy who, as the season began, even dabbled in launching the shot lefthanded just so he could experience the joy of again being a contributing part of a group.

Foley, in his second meet this spring, uncorked a throw of 41 feet, 7 inches. He's hoping to keep improving as the season rolls on, and would love nothing better than to approach/exceed the 50-foot mark.

The Quakers won the meet, 80-42, and junior Akeem Blake was quite the whirlwind. Aside from winning the high jump (6-4), long jump (22-1) and triple jump (44-9), he anchored the winning quartet in the 4x400 relay.

Other winners of note: junior Edgar McIlvaine in the pole vault (10-6) and classmate Dylan Burnett in the high hurdles (15.5).
