Outdoor Track and Field Team Wins CHSAA A Sectional Title

Last weekend, the outdoor track and field team won the CHSAA A sectional championship, taking home the John Donodeo Award, named for former Regis physical education teacher and track coach Mr. John Donodeo P'02. Regis won the award for the second consecutive year, finishing first by a whopping 36 points with Mr. Donodeo himself on hand to witness the victory.

"It was a complete team victory," said Mr. Chris Febles, head coach of the field events. "I’m so proud of our athletes.”

Regis athletes earned points in almost every event they contested during the meet. James Stappenbeck '25 was named the Track MVP of the meet for his runaway victory in the mile and his scorching anchor leg on the 4x800-meter relay. Matthew Kang '26 was voted the Field Event MVP with a win in the shot put and bronze medal in the discus. Jude Morrison '25 won the javelin and finished fifth in the discus. Adam Cartano '25, Ethan Klimczak '25, and Aidan Shrekgast '27 finished 1-2-3 in the two-mile run. Larson Marquez '25 and Dylan Alphenaar '24 finished second in the 110-meter hurdles and 800 meters, respectively. The 400-meter relay of Robert Johnston '25, Ray Canning '24, Sebastien Neptune '25, and Declan Miller '25 finished in third place, missing the school record by five hundredths of a second.

"It’s great to see so many athletes step up to help the team," said Mr. David Bonagura '99 P'25'28, head coach of the track events. "We asked a number of them to compete in events that would not have been their first choice, but they did so to help the team score points. Their sacrifices enabled us to win the championship.”
