2018 Track and Field State ChampionshipBefore the championship even began, a Pius athlete broke a state record. Senior Haley Rizek completed her preliminary 100 meter hurdle run in 14.39, a record among all classes. Her success continued on May 12th with two first place finishes in the 300 meter hurdles and javelin throw. A fall in the 100 meter hurdles prevented another 1st place finish, but her lead was so commanding she crawled to a 4th place finish.

Two fellow Sartans also stood on the first place podium. Senior Arianna Martinez won her 4th straight high jump state championship with a jump of 5'4". Ava Gervais, senior, became state champion in the triple jump with a jump of 36-06.50. Also, the girls team placed 4th in the 4x400 meter relay, which pushed the girl’s overall team ranking to 4th.

The boys team placed four times at the competition. Sophomore Isaiah Griffin placed 6th in the 100 Meter Dash, senior Nikulas Skipp placed 6th in high jump, senior Matthew Lobato placed 7th in triple jump, and the boys team placed 6th in the 1600 sprint medley.
