Emily Toth-Ratazzi, a junior at RFA broke a 41-year-old school record in the 800-meter race on May 25th, with a time of 2:18.2. The previous record was set in 1980 by Kathy Campbell, with a time of 2:20.8. Her coaches all agree that she has more in her and wouldn’t be surprised if she trimmed more time off her record.

Emily has been on the Varsity Indoor/Outdoor track team since 8th grade, and toward the end of the season knew she was going to keep going, after all running is a family affair! Not only does she run the 1,500, 3,000 and 800 meters, she is on the Cross-Country team. Her brother Nicolas also runs Cross-Country. Her parents, Shirley Toth Ratazzi and Paul Ratazzi are also runners.

The RFA girls Track and Field team finished the regular season 6-0 with a 107-34 win over Vernon-Verona-Sherrill in the Tri-Valley League on May 25. The Black Knights finished their regular season unbeaten.

Brett Couchman is the Head Coach for indoor/outdoor track and field team. Diane Stevenson is the Outdoor Coach and Nick Jeror, Cross Country Coach helps out as needed.

TVL Meet has now been set for 5 p.m. on Thursday June 3rd at RFA Stadium.

The Section III Championships will take place at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, June 8 at Liverpool.
