Record Breakers

Jupiter, FL- In his first season as head of the cross country programs at Forest Hill, Coach Justin Boruch definitely turned some heads around the county. Having a runner, Sophomore Isaias Dela Puente, who placed 2nd at the 3A state meet and was named Runner of the Year by the Palm Beach Post and Sun Sentinel really helped put the program on the map. Now, in his first season as head of the track and field programs, Boruch, along with his assistant coaches Laura Hayden and Allison Hammill, has wasted no time preparing and piecing his student-athletes in positions to succeed at high levels. The Falcons have soared through their first two meets of the season in record breaking fashion at the Royal Palm Invitational and the Jupiter Relays.

The Falcons opened the season at the Royal Palm Beach Invitational two weekends ago, and when it was all said and done the Falcons broke 4 school records. In the boys 200 meter dash Sophomore Chaz Eaton set a new Forest Hill mark with a blazing time of 23.56. Eaton followed up that performance by teaming up with junior Ryan Edwards, senior Jordy SaintVil, and senior Tajae Leslie to break the 4x100 meter relay record with a time of 43.50.

Not to be outdone by the boys, Freshmen Annelisa Pomarico set a new mark in the 1600 meter run with a time of 5:57. Pomarico followed that record setting performance and set another record when she teamed up with her sister freshmen Victoria Pomarico, Junior Tina Daughtry, and Sophomore Isabella Rowe in the 4x800 meter to post a time of 11:44.

Obviously the Falcons built on the momentum from their opening meet and road it into this past weekend’s Jupiter Relays hosted by Jupiter High School. The Falcons one upped their Royal Palm performance by setting 5 more records at the Relays. The boys’ 4x1600 meter relay record was broken by the team of Dela Puente, senior Craig Allen, senior Nick Nunez, and Freshmen Zach El-Abbar when they hit a time of 20:54. The boys’ 4x200 meter relay was also shattered by Eaton, Leslie, SaintVil, and senior LaFran Pierre with a time of 1:31.69. Pierre, Leslie, and Eaton then teamed up with Dela Puente to set a new mark in the 800 meter sprint medley with a time of 1:38.72.

Again, the girls stepped up with some big time finishes. The Pomarico sisters teamed up with Daughtry and Junior Morgan Cingle to break the 4x1600 meter relay with a time of 27:23. Rowe and the Pomarico sisters then teamed with senior Sophie Robuste to set a new distance medley record with a time of 14:12.21.

Consistency and commitment have been a huge part of the Falcons success. The coaching staff of Boruch and assistants Laura Hayden and Allison Hammill has provided the Falcons athletes with a solid structure of support. Falcons track athletes can expect to have practice daily and are expected to be at practice. This has paid huge dividends as the Falcons have established work ethic and commitment that the school and community can be proud to support.

The Falcons will be competing again this Wednesday at Park Vista Community High School. The action will get under way at 4:00 pm.
