Ryler Gould (Newburgh) is coming off a US #1 from Penn Relays, where he won the overall title in the 400H. Jaheim Dotson (Longwood) is close enough to challenge him, but Dotson is the real favorite in the 110H.
The Distance Races are exclusively strong in the 800m. The 1600m will see Matt Rizzo and Sean Ryan doubling back, facing off with a fresh Pedro Bravo (Iona Prep) and Jack Rosencrans (North Shore). Neither are to be taken lightly if the top seeds come in tired. Brendan Dearie (Saint Anthony's) has a healthy lead in the 3200m seeds. CT isn't limiting their entries to the 800m either, as Trey Cormier (Hall) is your top seed in the 3k Steeple. Cormier steepled for the first time this year, clocking 9:23.79, but also carries a 3000m personal best of 8:33.45, and a 3200m best of 9:08.75.

The field events should be highlighted by Steven Vasile (Commack), the reigning State Champ in the Discus. He's currently NY #3, but is chasing Anthony Harrison up in Section 1, who's gone out to NY #2 All-Time.
As for the sprints, look for Newburgh to try and sweep all three relays, as well as strong entrants in the open 400m.
