SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY — This is Championship Week One in the glorious realm of Section IX high school track and field. In the span of a single week, heated OCIAA division rivalries resulted in titles, the Sullivan County championships (aka, the Donna Deppa Meet of Champions) unfolded at Sullivan West, the electrifying OCIAA Throwing Pentathlon and Hammer Championships were staged at Monroe-Woodbury and the vaunted two-day OCIAA League Championships will be played out at the gorgeous Warwick track and field venue. As runners, jumpers and throwers look to marshal their best for these meets and the looming Section IX Championships that lie just ahead, many records are shattered and personal bests are often achieved.
