Schuylerville High School senior Ian Luhmann will compete in the state track meet on Friday, June 9 at Union-Endicott High School near Binghamton. Luhmann qualified for states in both the 100 meters and 200 meters during the state qualifier track meet at Shenendehowa on June 2. His time of 11.10 seconds in the 100 meters broke the school record.

“Ian has had an extremely successful four years of track at Schuylerville,” Coach Marcus LaBombard said. “He has won sectionals several times and has been a part of many school records. I’m continually impressed with his growth and dedication to the sport.”

Luhmann has been a part of eight school records, has compiled 15 patches in the Section II Track & Field Championships during his Schuylerville career and played a key role in Schuylerville’s 2015-16 indoor track and field team earning the title of Section II Division III Runner’s Up, as well as earning the title of Outdoor Track and Field Section II Division III Champions.

“Ian worked extremely hard in the weight room leading up to his senior year and it has clearly made a difference in his performance,” LaBombard said. “He always sets goals for himself, that he often achieves. I know he is looking forward to going to the state meet with an aim to make it to the finals and medal.”

If Luhmann finishes with one of the top eight fastest times during the semi-final races on Friday, June 9, he will advance to the 100 meter and 200 meter finals on Saturday, June 10. Medals are awarded to the top six finishers.

Luhmann plans to attend SUNY Delhi in the fall and will run both indoor and outdoor track for the college.
