The Benswic track and field team came out running great times at the season-opening at Park Slope Armory YMCA (Youth Series #1), but runner-up finishes by Chance (Yassin) Bacchas, Sophie Ahmad and Abigail Melican may have been the most impressive.
Bacchas running a PR of 31.10 in the 200m. Ahmad set a personal record in 800 meters, clocking 2:54.01 to finish 3rd overall. Melican ran 2:38.18 in the 800m, while marking a 2:40.84 800m last years Outdoor Season and running the 200m (32.60) with a PR. Amazing start from these three runners.
