Congratulations to Sachem HS East student-athlete Abby Callinan who finished her winter track season earning All-American status. Abby finished fourth in the mile race walk event at the New Balance Track and Field Center in Boston on March 12.
After winning the Suffolk County title last month in the 1500-meter race walk with a time 7:05.34, Abby improved her time to 6:55.79 to win the New York State championship on March 4. Her win made her the sixth ever Sachem East Arrow to win a state title in girls track and field.
The following week, Abby finished fourth in the mile race walk with a time of 7:33.65, more than 20 seconds faster than her performance in the same event last spring. This marks her second New Balance All-American title. Her time is currently ranked fifth in the U.S., trailing only a handful of athletes from Illinois, California, Texas and Maine.
