On Wednesday, April 27, the Regis Outdoor Track & Field Team won the 2022 Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) Novice Championships in a stunning upset. Edging out Fordham Prep, Cardinal Hayes, and Iona Prep, the team helped lead Regis Track to one of the greatest achievements in its 108-year history.
The day's meet included several standouts, including Olivier Jawornicki '23, who led the way with first and second place performances in the 110 meter hurdles and the 400 meter respectively. Thomas Chun '24 won the 3200 meter run, and Justin Gajewski '23 achieved a personal record in his victory in the Triple Jump. Regis' 4x200 meter relay team of Andrey Fernandez '22, Alex Clarkin '22, John Majsak '22 and Eric Noriega '22 earned a second place victory, and other great medal-winning performances came from Artie Daunt '22, Eric Schwebel '22, Senan Garry '23, Neil Johnson '23, Ray Provost '23, and Jason Alperin '24.
“I was already proud of these guys. I see the work ethic, I see the smiles on their faces, so they didn’t need to win a thing to earn my pride. But pulling off the upset, earning a plaque…well, that was a nice little surprise," said College Guidance Counselor & Head Field Coach Mr. Chris Febles. “Good to see that fire and dedication come to fruition. And I’ve had lots of congratulations from the other coaches. They know what it means for a little school like ours to win a championship. Couldn’t be happier for our athletes.”
Congratulations to all our Raiders for their fantastic achievement!
