Fourteen LB Students Going to State Athletic Championships

Fourteen Long Beach High School athletes are preparing to head to New York State Winter Championships, setting a district record for the largest contingent of individual sport athletes ever to reach this level in one season.

Dakota Ejnes will be going for gymnastics, while Ryan Aroesty, Matthew Cannon, Michael McCarthy, Shane Morris, Troy Morris and Thomas Ryan will represent the boys swim team. Scott Powers will compete in track and field, and Shawn Bourne, Tyreek Bromley, Tyrese Byron, Matt Maquet, Charlie Spada and Jacori Teemer will represent the wrestling team, which will also be honored at the New York State wrestling tournament as the No. 1 ranked team in the State.

“We are very proud of our student athletes who work hard on and off the field,” said Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Arnold Epstein. “They each demonstrate sportsmanship and dedication and we wish them well at States.”
