Middle Country boys track and field team opened its season at home but had its hands full against Sachem East March 25.
The standout performance came from Middle Country senior Josh Washington, who won the 100-meter race, placed second in the 200 and swept the long jump and triple jump competition, notching 18 of his team’s 55 points on the day.
The tandem of Bobby Ingraselino and Nico Lavazoli were the class of the field in the 4×400 relay, and Alec Weiss took the 110 hurdle event. Lavazoli crossed the line first at the 400 distance, but Sachem East with strength in numbers finished stronger overall to win the meet, 77-55.
