Terrel Davis took first in the high jump and his Beacon High School boys indoor track and field 800-meter relay squad set a school record at the Yale University Invitational in New Haven, Connecticut Saturday.
Davis’ leap cleared a height of 6 feet, 6 inches. He placed second to Rayvon Grey in the long jump, with Grey’s posting a distance of 23-7, and Davis soaring 22-11½.
David Adams placed third in the 55-meter hurdles (7.64 seconds), and fifth in the 400 (50.61).
Colin Battersby set the Beacon indoor school record in the 800 with a time of 2:01.16, placing 15th overall.
Davis, Grey, Adams and Tony Kaikai finished third in the 800 relay (1:30.94), setting a school record and falling twenty eight-hundreths of a second shy of the Dutchess County record of 1:30.66 set by Poughkeepsie High School, according to Beacon coach Jim Henry.
“The team continues to perform at a high level as we prepare for the championship season,” Jim Henry said in a statement.
“One of (Saturday’s) main goals was to reclaim the top time in Section 1 in the 800 relay,” he said, noting North Rockland and Mount Vernon were previously ahead of the Bulldogs, “and the team achieved that target and then some.”

Anthony Thomas likewise earned praise from Ketcham coach Josh Shoemaker for a win at 145 pounds in the team’s match against Arlington.
