Riverhead High School Senior Is One of Long Island’s Top Track and Field Athletes
Angelo Confort Leads Riverhead Boys Track and Field in Successful Season
RIVERHEAD, NEW YORK (JANUARY 2022) — Riverhead High School senior Angelo Confort was recently named to Newsday’s top 25 boys track and field athletes on Long Island and looks forward to a successful season alongside his teammates. Angelo is currently ranked number one in Suffolk County in the 55-meter hurdles and expected to make the state meet, which he also made his junior year after winning the Long Island championship.
“Angelo demonstrated incredible potential the moment he arrived on the track,” said Riverhead High School boys track and field coach Steve Gevinski. “Now with the experience of last year, he is thriving in an exceptional manner. He has become a student of the hurdles, constantly watching videos to improve his skills, and continually helps his teammates and exhibits outstanding leadership.”
Angelo will continue running hurdles at Binghamton University on its track and field team following his graduation this year. At Riverhead High School, he also runs the 4 x 200-meter relay with Jeremy Carey, Will Hunt and Yousses Wrencher. The group has one of the event’s top times in Suffolk County.
“Every member of this team is eager to meet the high expectations many have for us,” said Coach Gevinski. “I am incredibly proud of how far we have come, and there is still so much achievement that lies ahead of us.”
