Mustangs start new year strong

ROCHESTER — The Dansville indoor track & field team started the new year off right on Saturday (Jan. 5) with a trip to Rochester Institute of Technology where the Mustangs saw numerous athletes drop times, and add their names to the growing list of qualifiers for the post-season.

Coach Eileen McMaster was elated to tout those standouts who qualified for the sectionals, and made note of those whose times improved dramatically. That list includes: 

For the girls, improvements came for a pair of 8th graders as Maggie Bacon and Sophia Rodriguez both dropped 10 seconds off of their 2 mile times. Erica Patanella and Kendra Evans both earned their Varsity letter in the 1500m race walk. Finally, Summer Foster also earned her varsity letter in the 600m run.

On the boys side of things, Alex Rodriguez automatically qualified for Sectionals in the 1600m run and is currently ranked 2nd in Class C for the sectionals and has moved up to 3rd on the Mustangs' all-time leader board. He also provisionally qualified in the 600m run.

Evan Pruonto earned his varsity "D" in the 55m hurdles and also provisionally qualified in the 55m dash for the sectionals. Freshman Preston Bell set new personal bests in a pair of events (weight throw and shot put). Zach Forster dropped 16 seconds off of his time in the 2-mile.

The Mustangs revisit RIT again this Saturday (Jan. 12) night for the "Rochester Relays."
