Sophomore Brittany Korsah will represent the district at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York to compete in the 300-meter dash during the NYS Public High School Athletic Association/New York State Federation Combined Winter Track and Field Championships on       March 7. She is the first female from West Babylon School District to qualify for the state finals.

Brittany finished third at the Section XI State Qualifier meet at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood on Sunday, Feb. 8, running a qualifying time of 41.51 seconds. She was the only sophomore to reach the finals in this event, as the rest of the competitors were upperclassmen. Brittany is the school record holder for the 300-meter dash, and is also a triple jumper and the anchor of the winter team’s 4x200 meter relay.

“During the next few weeks leading up to the State Championship on March 7, I am sure Brittany will continue to appreciate your support and well wishes,” coach Phil Armato said. “Brittany continuously strives for excellence, which is the trademark of a special athlete.”
