Sousis all smiles after breaking steeplechase records

Lansingburgh High School junior C.J. Sousis set a Cohoes Relays (and the Lansingburgh school) record in the 3,000 meter steeplechase last weekend, running in a time of 9:49.3.

Fourteen meet records fell at the 13th annual Cohoes Invitational Relays last Saturday and Lansingburgh High School junior C.J. Sousis made sure to get things off on the right foot on the day’s first event - the steeplechase.

In an event predicated on the balance between long-distance running and a few brief seconds of panic in jumping over four large hurdles per lap, Sousis stumbled on his second circuit at Cohoes, just before the single hurdle with a water pit behind it.

"He had one barrier, the second time around on the water barrier, where he really got his steps messed up and he didn’t accelerate and he didn’t push off well," said Dale Broomhead, Lansingburgh’s distance coach. "But he recovered very nicely."

That he did. Sousis finished the race in 9:49.3, shattering the meet record of 10:13.88, set one year before by Shaker High’s Casey Gilboy.

"I was trying to get my steps down and completely messed up and fell in," Sousis said. "Then I saw the Shaker kid (Gilboy, the record-holder) go and I just lift¬ed my knees and sped up to catch up to him and I was right behind him again."

Even more impressive for Sousis was that he broke the school record, which was held by current Lansingburgh senior Alney Tobias, who run a 3,000 meter steeplechase course in 10:03.5 just weeks before.

"He (Tobias) definitely pushes me, but he’s one of the top Section II runners," Sousis said. "He has school records that I definitely want. He had this one before today and I ended up getting 9:49 and smashing his. So it really was an inspiration."
