Stamford Advocate - - Sports - By Dan Nowak IN­DOOR TRACK

The New Canaan boys and girls in­door track teams have had their share of suc­cess early this sea­son.

At the Fair­field County In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic Con­fer­ence de­vel­op­men­tal meet on Jan. 5, the New Canaan boys were among the dom­i­nant teams with five wins.

In the boys com­pe­ti­tion, Dy­lan Im­bruce won the 100 (2:48.74), Al­lessan­dro Malagoli won the 1,600 (4:50.85), Cem Geray won the 3,200 (11:14.81), Jack Con­ley won the shot put (51-2) and John Peiser won the high jump (5-10).

“Our re­cent suc­cess has given us the mo­men­tum to push through and gen­er­ate all around per­for­mances in all events,” New Canaan boys in­door track coach Bill martin said. “We have qual­i­fiers for al­most ev­ery event for our county cham­pi­onship. Our suc­cess has come from a long stand­ing phi­los­o­phy of de­vel­op­ing young ath­letes.

“Our cur­rent group of ath­letes are dom­i­nated by sopho­mores with a sprin­kling of se­nior lead­er­ship. Our depth is con­tribut­ing to this suc­cess.”

Other top ath­letes on the team in­clude An­drew Malling, the FCIAC cross coun­try cham­pion, who is fo­cus­ing on the ,1600 and 3,200 this sea­son. He hasn’t run in the FCIAC meets yet. Martin said ju­nior Grif­fen Day­ton and se­nior An­drew Jordan in the 600 are just out­side the qual­i­fy­ing time for the state meets. Sopho­more Alle­san­dro Malagoli and ju­nior Ryan Ly­tle are close to the state qual­i­fy­ing time in the 1,000 and Malagoli has qual­i­fied for the 3,200. Sopho­more Luca Pala­menti also has qual­i­fied for the FCIAC 3,200.

The New Canaan girls in­door track and field team also had its share of suc­cess in the re­cent FCIAC de­vel­op­men­tal meet. Tyler Tow­ers won the 300 (46.49), Ella Gibb won the 600 (1:54.47), Imo­gen Rawl­ings-Green won the 1,000 (3:30.60), Elaina Tiller won the 1600 (5:43.42) and Naomi Cimino won the shot put (31-5.5).
