Pittsfield’s Kieran Coscia broke a tie atop the discus standings and finishes his campaign with the county’s best discus and shot put throws.

After an abbreviated spring season allowed Berkshire County student-athletes their first chance to get on a track in two years, a bunch of the area’s top competitors finished up their campaigns at the MIAA sectional and state meets.

With those championship performances came some of the top times and distances of the season. The final Berkshire County Track and Field Honor Roll of the 2021 season featured 18 new or improved first-place marks.On the boys side, 10 of the 17 events saw new or improved leaders with the three postseason meets, including that of 100-meter dash champion Emmanuel Nda with a 10.80 mark. He also owned the 200 locally.

Lenox’s Ely Carroll, Ted Yee and Dennis Love all overtook teammates to finish atop in the 400, 1 mile and 2 mile. Yee knocked seven seconds off his previous best, while Love shaved about 15 seconds.

Mount Greylock’s Quinn McDermott leapt from third to first in the 800. As did Wahconah’s Brody Calvert, who added a foot to his long jump distance to win the County. Monument Mountain’s 4x400 relay team took 10 seconds off its previous mark and overtook Lenox in the event.

Lenox’s Dennis Love took 15 seconds off his 2-mile time in the postseason and led a Millionaires 1-2 sweep in both long distance events this season.

Pittsfield’s Lucas Benoit and Sincere Moorer improved their positions atop the 110 hurdles and triple jump. Moorer, in his first season of track, soared an extra almost three feet to jump 44-even, almost five feet beyond his closest local competitor.

A final General, Kieran Coscia, broke a tie atop the discus standings with Ryan Goss, extending his best by seven feet to take the honor roll lead. Coscia also finished with the top shot put throw and third-best javelin.
