UC has a Strong Day at Lavino Relays!
Conor Reilly broke the school indoor record in the pole vault and was a member of two winning teams, and Alexandra Bonn was a double-winner for the Union Catholic girls at Saturday’s Lavino Relays in Lawrenceville.
Reilly, senior, soared over the bar at 15-6 in the pole vault, tied for No. 3 in the state this season, to break the Union Catholic school indoor record. Reilly’s 15-6 also broke his personal best of 15-3 that he cleared last spring, and it helped UC break the school two-man indoor PV record as Reilly and Justin Lopez (12-0) combined for a winning total of 27-6.
In addition to his record stetting exploits in the pole vault, Reilly also soared 21-2 when he teamed up with Oluwafemi Asenuga (20-8) to win the team long jump.
On the girls side, UC won the 4×200 in 1:46.31, and finished first in the long jump and triple jump.
Bonn, one of most talented freshman stars in the state, leaped 17-0 when she teamed with A’Liyah Taylor (16-7) to win the long jump, and went 34-0 in the triple jump when she and Felicia Quainoo (36-1) combined to finish first.
