PENFIELD — Geneseo Blue Devil Kyle Rollins made history at State Qualifiers on Friday.
Rollins scored an incredible 3,820 points, moving him from fourth all-time in the history of Section V to the number one Pentathlon scorer ever.
“It was a perfect night of competition and it felt great to be among Section V’s top athletes,” Rollins. “All my extra training and support from my coaches this season have paid off. And now it’s time to focus on bringing home a state title to Geneseo.”
Rollins is no stranger to breaking records. He broke and set his school’s pentathlon record a number of times, but after Friday’s performance, well, he is the only one in Section V to ever perform like that.
His previous record in the Pentathlon was 3,480 points. He scored almost 200 points higher at State Qualifiers.
His score of 3,820 is among one of the highest scores in New York State history. The current record in NYS is 3,850 points, set in 1995. With the State Championship coming up Rollins, it is fair to say that Rollins has a chance to break yet another record.
Rollins broke Geneseo Central’s records for High Jump, 110 Hurdles and Pentathlon just this season. With one meet left he’ll surely be setting the bar high.
“Simply an amazing night,” said on Geneseo’s Track and Field Twitter account.
The State Championships will be at Union-Endicott High School on June 9 and 10.
