The high school’s varsity boys winter track team successfully competed in the League III championship meet on Jan. 22.

Two seniors were named league champions: captain Chris Cox won the 1,600-meter race with a time of 4:41, beating the second-place finisher by 10 seconds after leading the entire way. Fellow senior Nick Fenton won the 1,000-meter race with a time of 2:40.

Said coach Thomas Brouillard, “This was the first time that a runner from Deer Park’s boys winter team has won an individual event at the league championship since 2008, when Mike Sena did so, and we had two do it!”

The school’s 4x800-meter relay team consisting of senior captains Chris Cox and Ryan Brown, senior Nick Fenton, and sophomore Ryan Brooks were named runners-up, earning All-League honors.
