Huntington, NY - April 14th, 2016 - Athletes from the Huntington High School Blue Devil 4X400 Meter Relay Team were recently honored by Suffolk County Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D. at the General Meeting of the Legislature after finishing their undefeated season with a gold medal and national championship title!

Team members, Lawrence Leake, Kyree Johnson, Shane McGuire, and Infinite Tucker, under the direction of Coach Ron Wilson and Assistant Coaches Eli Acosta and Haidee Ganz-Bonhurst, raced against some of the nation’s best runners at the New Balance National Indoor meet held at the Armory in Manhattan on March 13th.

Finishing the 4X400 meter relay race with a time of 3:16.09 minutes, these four talented young men beat out 26 other teams to become the 2016 National Champions.

Their time set a new Suffolk County record and ranked as the third fastest recorded time in New York State history, and the ninth fastest time nationally.

“Many times we have the opportunity to recognize county champions, sometimes Long Island champions, and occasionally state champions, today we honor our very own national champions,” said Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D.

“Your hard work and dedication has paid off. Congratulations on your successes and a record breaking year!”
