John Amaning Jr- Newington (Track & Field): Amaning broke the school record in the 100-meter dash, running a 10.74 in a meet at Wethersfield last Thursday. The senior sprinter had a personal best 11.09 the week before, prompting a conversation between him and his coach about the record prior to the Wethersfield meet, “Wethersfield had a great sprinter that has numbers similar to me. So the competition in the race just helped me even more.” Amaning, who has also excelled as a running back on the gridiron at NHS, has committed to play both football and run track at Lackawanna College in Pennsylvania next fall, stating, “I’m so thankful for this opportunity. I’m grateful for the man above and allowing me to showcase my talents on and off the field.”
