The Albany Varsity Girls team finished in second place, with the Varsity Boys coming in third place. The Junior Varsity Boys fell three points short of winning the championship.
Among the standout performers were senior Siobhan Bauer and junior Conrad Federspiel, both of whom won their respective discus events with personal bests. Bauer won with a heave of 97’ 8” and Federspiel took the BSAL title with a personal best of 138’ 1”. Senior Jeffrey Wu, who dug himself a deep hole in the early rounds came back strong to finish second in the discus to Federspiel.
Senior Stuart Adams improved upon his school record for the 300-meter hurdles, finishing with a time of 41.63 seconds. Adams finished second to state-ranked Kenneth Walker III of Kennedy High and pushed the UCLA-bound football star to the last hurdle. Adams is the first Albany runner under 42 seconds for the 300 hurdles.
Two sophomore girls, Naomi Hamada and Suzanne Becker, both came within one second of breaking the school records for the 300-meter hurdles and the 800-meter run, respectively. Becker will be competing in two events at the NCS meet this weekend, finishing second in both the 800 and 1600 meter races.
