It all ended for Jack Dufton with a Coke and a smile.

Following the New York State Public High School Athletic Association track and field championships last year when he finished 23rd in the pentathlon, Dufton resolved to cut out bad foods from his diet and abstained from drinking soda. “I wanted to come back bigger, stronger, healthier,” said the Mattituck High School senior.

Jack Dufton has never met Keith Reda, but he’s been chasing after him for three years. On Saturday, Dufton passed by him.

Dufton broke a Mattituck High School pentathlon record that had been on the books and owned by Reda for 26 years. By winning the 1,500-meter run, the final phase of the pentathlon in the Section XI Individual Championships/state qualifier, with a time of 4 minutes 23.50 seconds, Dufton totaled 3,017 points. That left him in second place behind West Islip junior Andrew Lauriquet (3,140), but surpassed the mark of 2,933 that Reda set in 1990. READ

PREVIEW

After sending his cross-country runners off on their training run last Thursday afternoon, Karl Himmelmann speculated on the near future for his Southold team. It’s a bright future. Curious to see how the new season unfolds, he said, “I’m excited, really excited.”

Himmelmann has good reason to be. He called this the “deepest boys field I’ve had in the five years I’ve been coaching.” (more…)
