Isabelle Despins with head coach Declan Foley

Holy Child junior Isabelle Despins represented the Gryphons at the New York State Federation Track and Field Championships March 5 and 6 at Cornell University, running the 300-meter dash in 45.48 seconds. She finished in 27th place.

Despins qualified for the meet two weeks ago by winning the NYSAIS Championship 300 in a personal best time of 44.42, edging out her nearest competitor by just over a half-second. This was her first individual appearance at a State Meet. Despins was also the recipient of the NYSAIS Girls Sportsmanship Award for the 2010-2011 Indoor Track and Field season.
