With 32 boys on the roster, including a strong group of upperclassmen, Cabrini should be a force in 2014.

Senior Paul Gass, who holds the school record in the 400, is back this season to lead the Monarchs’ sprinters. In 2013, he was second in the 400 at the Catholic League Meet and seventh at The News-Herald Track & Field Championship.

Joining him as Cabrini sprinters will be fellow seniors Jonah Globke, Chris Gottlob, Steve Hecmanczuk, Kirk Nicola and Chris Sukel, as well as juniors Danny Cardosi, Brendan Delaney, Jimmy Izzo, Justin Querry, Russell Solano. Others competing as sprinters will be sophomores Collin Branigan, Pearse Branigan, Kyle Grauer and Billy Oeftering and freshmen Thomas Banghart and Nathan Schulte.

The Monarchs’ distance races will be handled by seniors Bryan Giczewski, Max Moler, Jacob Seasock, Zach Seasock, juniors Joey Asterino, Carlos Salcido, Tony Soderberg, sophomores Alec Bollinger and freshman Michael Pomponio.

Throwing for Cabrini this season will be juniors Brandon MacGregor, Daniel Rosales and sophomore Andy Orr.

In the mix for the hurdle events are senior Eric LaCroix, junior Stephan Banghart and sophomore Joey Trohimczyk.

The Monarchs were scheduled to open their season yesterday at Royal Oak Shrine.


While Richard will head into 2014 with 33-man roster, quite a few members of Coach Ben Madera’s squad will be freshmen.

Key returners this year are seniors Zach Stempien, Jimmy Lyons, Dylan Gracia, as well as junior Jack Randles and sophomore Luke Geierman.

At last season’s Catholic League Meet, Stempien captured the high jump title, Gracia was second in the 3,200 and was followed by Randles in fourth, and Lyons placed second for the day in the 300 hurdles.

Madera said that Geierman is expected to compete in the 800 and freshman Nate Hammond will be looked to for big contributions, as well.

The Pioneers are scheduled to compete at the Shrine Open on Saturday, which will take place at Livonia’s Ladywood High School.
