Coach Karl Himmelmann knows Max Pasko well enough to know that no one knows Max Pasko better than Max Pasko.

Pasko, a junior sprinter on Southold/Greenport’s high school boys track and field team, has had to deal with injury issues over the past two years, most notably Piriformis syndrome, which causes compression of the sciatic nerve, and troublesome hamstring problems.

When it comes to doing what he needs to in order to train or compete in competition, no one knows better than Pasko what to do. READ

Jack Dufton, one of the greatest track and field athletes Mattituck High School has seen in recent memory, has moved on. He is now running for Amherst College in Massachusetts.

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
