JOSH “SLO MO” MOORE and COCO “2COs” SAGOO-JONES continued their record-breaking seasons by establishing new marks in the 400 and 200 meter races.  Running in the Armory Youth Championships, JOSH powered to a 400 time of 52.99, taking down his old mark of 54.11. At the USATF NY/NJ/CT Open/Masters Championships, COCO stopped the clock at 65.77 and erased Stefanie Mitchell’s record of 66.54 set in January 2020. A week later in the Armory Youth Last Chance Invitational, COCO lowered MNTC’s 200 mark to 28.18, shearing .15 off her own record. JOSH now owns MNTC records in the 55, 60, 200, 400, and he’s a member of the Boys’ record holding teams in the 4×200, 4×400, and Sprint Medley Relay. Not to be outdone, COCO tops the list in the 55, 200, 400, Long Jump and, she too, is a member of the record holding teams in the Girls’ 4×200, 4×400, and Sprint Medley Relay. But COCO and JOSH aren’t the only runners leaving a mark in the MNTC Record Book. At the Armory Youth meet, ETHAN “BEEZ” BEN-ZION stormed to the front of the pack and rode an opening 400 of 60.36 to a new MNTC mark of 2:09.87.

Other highlights in recent meets, COOPER ANTONUCCI, JACK BRITTON, REESE BIENSTOCK, and CALEB PARK recorded a time of 1:38.67 in the 4×200 Relay, moving to No. 2 on MNTC’s All-Time List. BRITTON high jumped 5′ 10″ to win the GOLD MEDAL at the Armory Youth meet; ARIEL SHARP, JESSICA ONWUKA, RACHEL FINE, and COCO SAGOO-JONES put up a time of 1:58.02 in the 4×200, good for the No. 4 spot All-Time; and OLIVIA MOK’s leap of 12′ 1″ landed her at No.4 on the Long Jump list!
