Leading off today:
Fordham Prep senior Conor Lundy
broke the Yale Track Classic meet record for 3,000 meters, winning Saturday in 8 minutes, 22.06 seconds at the William Clay Ford Center.
Junior teammate Conor Hughes won the mile in 4:22.25 to give the school an impressive one-two punch in the distance races.
Lundy, who will attend Princeton in the fall, was fourth in the mile at the Millrose Games a year ago and third in the Federation cross country meet this past fall.
He ran in the middle of the pack early in the Yale race before moving into the top two, then pulling away in the final quarter mile.
"The guys are fast so I wanted to stick with the leaders," Lundy told The Journal News. "With two laps left I pushed it. I'm very pleased."
Eastern States wrestling: Two Hilton athletes were among the three boys honored as most outstanding wrestlers at the Eastern States Championships on Saturday. The Cadets Yianni Diakomihalis (138 pounds) and Louie DePrez (170) were selected for the middle and upper weights, respectively.
They were among the 12 New York wrestlers earning weight-class championships in the huge meet.
Diakomihalis took a 7-1 lead through two periods and decisioned Fox Lane's Matt Grippi 17-5 in his final. DePrez captured his final by a 9-0 score over Evan Frank of John Jay Cross River.
Adam Busiello (Eastport-South Manor) scored the only fall of the finals, pinning Orion Anderson (Schuylerville) late in the first period.
Ludden wins Syracuse clash: Sophomore Mika Adams-Woods piled up 37 points, including five 3-pointers, as Bishop Ludden beat Syracuse CBA 67-58, handing the Brothers their first boys basketball loss of the season.
CBA is ranked sixth in the state in Class A and Ludden is honorable mention in Class AA.
Adams-Woods' cousin, CBA sophomore Charles Pride, scored 26 points.
"Mika played great -- unbelievable," CBA coach Buddy Wleklinski told Syracuse.com. "And we really didn't do a horrible job of guarding him. He made some tough shots."
CBA rallied from eight down at the half to tie the game at 31 on a put-back dunk by Pride, then took a pair of one-point leads before Joe Connor gave the Gaelic Knights the lead for good.
Done for the season: Reports emerged last week that Iona Prep standout Ty Jerome, a candidate for the various postseason honors, has been shut down for the rest of the basketball season due to an injury.
Jerome, a 6-foot-5 wing who'll attend Virginia in the fall, needs hip surgery on a torn labrum and a misshaped ball socket in his right hip. He will undergo further tests on his left hip and expects to need a similar surgery there as well, The Journal News reported.
Jerome missed the last four games with soreness in his hips, an injury that dates to last season.
"I was hoping I could rehab or maybe the problem could require a quick surgery," he said. "I spoke to (Virginia) coach (Tony) Bennett today and everyone's on the same page. I think it's best for my future to get the surgery as soon as possible."
Iona Prep's Matt Ryan, now a freshman at Notre Dame, sad similar double hip surgery as a junior and returned to earn the statewide Mr. Basketball honor as a senior.
