The spring season is underway, and MacArthur track and field has much to offer to Nassau County. The boys’ and girls’ team, under the supervision of Head Coach Jamie San Filippo and Assistant Coach Christa Imperiale, have a combination of both new and old athletes that will contribute to the outstanding progression of track and field in general.
On the boys’ side, the team is led by UConn-bound Captain Matthew Granata, a threat in any race from the 100 to the 800. In the winter season, he was unanimously voted as the most outstanding performer for Nassau County for his achievements in the 600 especially. As for his spring season, he opened with an impressive 1:57.9 in the 800 and will most likely secure top county rankings in several events.
