BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Allegany-Limestone senior Angelina Napolean (1,000 meters, high jump), Frontier sophomore Lillie Bogdan (1,500 meters, 3,000 meters), Sweet Home senior Amari Hall (long jump, triple jump), and Frewsburg junior Landon Stormer (55 meters, 300 meters) were double-winners at the Section VI indoor track and field state qualifier contested this past weekend at Houghton College.

Napolean, a North Carolina State recruit who was a two-time cross country state champion, age group record-setter in the 2,000-meter steeplechase, as well as outdoor state champion in that event and the 800 as a junior, was state indoor champion in the 1,000 and high jump events last year. She holds section records in the 1,000 and 1,500, and she has a top 10 time nationally in the 1,000, according to MileSplit.com.

Bogdan was sectional champion and state runner-up in Class A during cross country season, sharing All-WNY Runner of the Year accolades with Napolean.

Gold and silver medalists in each individual event automatically qualified for the NYSPHSAA/Federation Championships on March 4 on Long Island. Bronze winners who met qualifying standards during the season can also advance to the state meet, along with second-place relay teams.

Tapestry junior Dante Townsell (long jump, triple jump) and Springville-Griffith junior Linnea Neureuther (55 hurdles, triple jump) also qualified in two individual events.
