Webb wins 100m 'unofficially'
PENN YAN—The Dundee boys and girls track and field teams participated in a scrimmage at Penn Yan. Official times were not recorded. The event, however, allowed the athletes to compete in game-like conditions. With a strong wind, practice at the high jump was most problematic. Some of the relays and short distance events were affected when the athletes had to run into the wind.
Dundee’s 100m record holder, Steven Webb, ran an unofficial time of 11.19 seconds, slightly above the time he ended with last year. New to the Dundee field team is Mike Raplee. Raplee, known for his football and wrestling prowess, looks to be strong in both the discus and shot put, according to coach Sheldon Gibson. Gibson predicts a great season for the Dundee team. “There’s no reason why we shouldn’t have a good representation at sectionals.”
The Dundee team wore their new track uniforms. Gibson stated the new uniforms were a hit. “The old uniforms were pretty aged and almost thread-bare. These new uniforms are pretty nice.”
