PB’s Przybocki hits a personal high
A few days earlier, Meredith Przybocki was at the Armory in New York City, and she crossed five-feet, six inches in the high jump for a personal record.
On Dec. 22, she was back at West Point during a developmental meet still working – but not thinking about bettering that mark.
“I’m just trying to get whatever I can,” she said, after crossing four-feet 10 inches.
Przybocki would cover five-feet, two inches that day to win the high jump.During that developmental meet, she also won the long jump, covering 15-feet, and nine inches and placed fourth in the 55-meter hurdles.
During that meet Dec. 22, Pine Bush’s Taylor Creagh was second in the 3,000-meter run. Pine Bush’s Steve Smith, Steve Biondi and Adam Alhasaizeh went 1-2-3 in the 1000-meter run, as Jodi Collymore, their teammate, was second in the girls’ 1000-meter run. The Pine Bush girl’s team was also second in the 3,200-relay.
“Meredith has been doing well in the high jump,” said Gerry Risco, who coaches Pine Bush’s girls team.
Risco said the developmental meets really give him and his runners the knowledge of how they’re doing until it starts to count later in the indoor season.
“This is when (we know) where we’re going to put them,” he said, “and how it’s going to happen.”
Wallkill’s Ciarra Holmes was third in the 55-meter hurdles and tied for second in the 55-meter dash Dec. 22. Holmes was also fourth in the long jump.
