This story has been updated.

A Yonkers track club including a pair of young brothers from Mamaroneck scored 13 medals during an indoor track championship on Staten Island.

The Notre Dame Track Club athletes were among 2,700 talented stars who competed in the 2017 USATF Hershey National Youth Indoor Championships, March 10-12, at Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex.

Kyle Snow, a 4th grader, at F.E. Bellows Elementary School in Mamaroneck, won a gold medal in the shot put for the age 9-10 Boys Division.

Most of the track club's other medalists attend Sacred Heart Grade School in Yonkers.

Kyle went on to win a bronze medal in the high jump and anchored his 4 X 400 relay team to win a 6th place medal.

Kyle and his relay teammates Dean Vazquez, Sachin Ramharak and Aaron Irish Bramble earned a personal best time of 5:12. Kyle’s best throw was 25 feet 9 inches and his best jump and personal record was 4 feet 1 ½ inches.

Meanehile, Kyle's older brother Jaden Snow, a 6th grader at Rye Neck Middle School in Mamaroneck, received the USATF New York 2016 Athlete of the Year Track and Field 11-12 Boys Division.

Jaden won a silver medal in the high jump in the age 11-12 Boys Division by leaping a personal record 4 feet 9 ½ inches. Jaden also enjoyed a respectable finish of 7th place in the 800-meter run and 10th place in the 55-meter hurdles.

Emilis Flores, competing in the 8 and Under Girls Division, won a silver medal in the shot put.

Miguel Negrete, competing in the age 15-16 Boys Division, won a bronze medal in the pole vault with a personal record of 11 feet 7 inches as well as a bronze medal in the high jump with a personal record of 5 feet 7 inches.

“Today is a very special day for me," Miguel said. "I earned personal records (and) my family was with me to share my joy.”

Julia Plawiak, competing in the 55-meter hurdles, won a 4th place medal with a personal record of 9.77 seconds.

Jessica Manzueta won a 4th place medal in the shot put with a best throw of 28 feet 7 inches. Both Jessica and Julia were competing in the age 11- 12 Girls Division

Aaron Irish Bramble earned another 6th place medal in the high jump, competing in the age 9-10 Boys Division, in addition to his 4 X 400 relay medal.

In an interview with USATF New York Association representatives, Kyle Snow said, “My mom wanted to see me throw the shot put for 8 meters (26 feet and 2 inches) and I think I came pretty close at 7.85 meters (25 feet and 9 inches).

Coach Joe McMahon has led the team to more than 40 national medals since the team began competing on the National stage 21 years ago.

“I am extremely proud of the this Notre Dame team. It is rewarding to see the level completion displayed by our athletes this weekend," McMahon said.

McMahon said his team looks forward to competing at the Junior Olympic National Outdoor Championships in Lawrence, Kansas, beginning July 24.

"Competing with the best athletes in the country has certainly brought out the competitive spirit from our athletes," McMahon said.
