Field Events

Joe Sciuto was raised in Jackson Heights. Before coming to McClancy, Joe attended P.S. 69 and I.S. 145. While at McClancy, Joe was the epitome of the student-athlete. His grades earned him the recognition of being on the Principal’s List every marking period for his four years, culminating in being class valedictorian at graduation. Joe’s academic honors did not end there. He was also President of the National Honors Society, President of the National Spanish Honors Society, and Vice-President of the Student Council.

Joe’s outstanding achievements have extended beyond the classroom. Joe was the four time varsity Brooklyn-Queens Champion and four times City Champion in the High Jump, and twice won the varsity Brooklyn-Queens and City Championships in the Triple Jump. Joe holds many of the school’s jumping records.   He holds the Indoor and Outdoor record in the High Jump at six feet, eight inches. Joe has placed second on the school’s all-time list with a triple jump of forty-six feet, five inches. Joe is also a member of the school’s Shuttle hurdle relay team record holders, and he ranks in the schools Top 10 in the hurdles. All of these accomplishments earned Joe an academic and athletic scholarship to Manhattan College.

While at the Bronx school, Joe set the school record in the Indoor High Jump with a leap of seven feet, one and three-quarter inches. In the prestigious IC4AA meet, Joe was the runner-up in the Indoor High Jump and the Outdoor High Jump Champion as a sophomore, a jump that saw him ranked 18th in the country and barely missing qualification for the NCAA Championships by one spot. Joe was the multiple times MET Conference Champion in the High Jump. When Manhattan switched to the MAAC Conference, he won that championship numerous times and is the present-day record holder in the Championship meet. Joe was named to the All-East team in High Jump and Triple Jump a number of times. To round off his accomplishments at Manhattan, Joe graduated Magna Cum Laude.

Upon graduation, Joe began his career at Morgan Stanley, a career which continues to this day. Joe’s employment with Morgan Stanley has even brought him to Japan. Since graduating from McClancy, Joe has medaled several times in the High Jump at the Empire State Games. Earlier this year, Joe completed the NYC Triathlon as part of Team in Training and raised over $3,300 for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. He has since completed two other triathlons in for fun.
