Sage Bartlett of Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Central School District placed fourth in the small schools division at the New York State Track & Field Championships and ninth overall in all schools.
Bartlett had an outstanding two days including personal bests in two of the five events and a total score of 3187, which was also a personal best.
He ran hurdles in 15.51 seconds, high jumped six feet and one inch, threw the shot put 31 feet, long jumped 20 feet and ran the 1500 in four minutes and forty-one seconds.
Bartlett’s season earned him a place on the All-CNY Boys Track Team.
“Sage is one of the hardest working kids I have had the privilege of working with in my ten years of coaching,” said Coach Dan Bryant. “I was extremely lucky to have had the chance to work with him over the last four years. I was so proud of the effort he put in at the state meet. He did extremely well in almost every event.”
Bryant also said that Bartlett would often come back with some of his best performances of his career after an event that he wasn’t satisfied with.
“Rebounding from a setback is a testament to his talent and character,” said Bryant.
