NEW YORK, NY -- Brandon Patterson won the shot put and Conor Reilly broke the school indoor record in the pole vault for the second time in less than a week to highlight action for the Union Catholic boys at Tuesday's 84th Eastern States Championships at the New Balance Track and Field Center.
Patterson, a senior who lives in Plainfield, unloaded a throw of 57-5 1/2.
Reilly, a sophomore, made 14-6 to tie for fifth place in the pole vault and break the school indoor record of 14-3 that Reilly cleared this past Sunday to win the State Non-Public A title at the Bennett Center in Toms River. Reilly's 14-6 also places him tied for No. 5 in the state this season.
