Mastic Beach, NY - June 25, 2015 - Congratulations to William Floyd High School senior Hasani Rathan who recently took home his second gold medal of the year at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Outdoor Track and Field Championships held at SUNY Albany with a high jump of 6’ 10” – the same height that brought him the gold at the New York State Winter Track Championship held at Cornell University in March. Additionally, senior Dwight Corley also picked up a medal with a fourth-place finish in the long jump event with a leap of 22’. Both student-athletes will be taking their talents to the college level in the fall as Rathan will attend the University at Buffalo and Corley will attend Buffalo State.
“Seeing both young men on the podium is an amazing accomplishment and is the result of months of hard work and practice to better themselves and compete at such an elite level,” said Ed Noll, head coach of the boys track team. “I know they will continue to represent our community well and make William Floyd proud.”
