Varsity Track & Field: Cortland vs. Multiple Teams (Section III Class A Championships)

The Cortland Purple Tigers competed in the “Section III Class A Championships” Wednesday evening at East Syracuse Minoa high school. 

According to Cortland coach Luke Schweider, “the meet was only half finished due to weather and will be completed Friday morning.”

Because of the setback, all official results from the meet will be provided when the meet is completed on Friday (May 24th). 

However, during the meet, Cortland senior Bryan Honan broke a Cortland school record in the discus throw event that was set in 1971.

“The previous school record was held by Rhys Adams and was 150-10,” stated coach Schweider. “Bryan (Honan) set the new one at 151-3.”

Honan ended up winning 1st place in the discus throw event. His throw also qualified him for the NYS Championship.
