The only muscle that wasn't sore when Shoreham-Wading River's Ryan Udvadia crossed the finish line of the Suffolk State Qualifying 3,200 was his thumb. Perhaps that's why he raised it -- a fitting salute to a race that was filled with drama.
Bradley Kaufmann's dream of going to the winter New York State Meet was dashed before he even had the chance to run. The East Meadow senior was standing on the starting line of the 3,200 at February's Nassau State Qualifier Meet when his foot slipped, ever so slightly, off the line before the starting gun fired.
Smithtown West's Victoria Ingram couldn't help it. As she crossed the line with one lap left in the 3,000 meters at Suffolk's state qualifying meet Friday, the junior turned her head to see who was behind her.

The race for the Clarke Rams distance medley relay team started as soon as the bus rolled into the Massapequa High School parking lot Friday afternoon.

ITHACA, NY -- Like it was for most races this season, Garden City's Emma Gallagher's closest opponent was the wind at her back. The sophomore won the 600 in one minute, 33.17 seconds at yesterday's state track and field championship, held at Cornell.
ITHACA, NY -- Everything about Sayville's Christopher Belcher screams fast. Even his leotard reads "Flashes" across the chest. Yes, it happens to be the Sayville school nickname, but it also describes Belcher perfectly.
A Chaminade record may have been broken Monday night, but at least it's staying in the family. Gunnar Nolan, Sean Kelly, Caelum Maloney and Thomas Slattery made up the Flyers' foursome that ran the distance medley relay at the 79th annual Eastern States Championship at the Armory in Manhattan.
When MacArthur's Nicole Natland walked into the Long Island Track and Field Invitational Friday night at St. Anthony's, she knew she was among the best pole vaulters on L.I. After all, you don't get invited without being exceptional.
Those who believe that weekends are for sleep and relaxation clearly don't run track. There's no rest in this sport, and the weary seldom cross the finish line happy.
