|Track & Field Athletes Qualify for State Meet|
D-E Track & Field Team athletes competed this past Friday and Saturday, May 25-26, at the Sectionals, and did a "superb" job according to Coach Jerry Krauthamer.
Not coincidental to this achievement was the great support and encouragement the parents gave to the competitors.
- Eight people qualified for the State Group meet (Ana "Bobbie" Javier, Marc Rosenberg, Rolando Tan, Garret Finn, Shereen Al-Sawwaf, Ashley Bryan, Hannah Jerome, and Sarah Friedrich)
- Bobbie (4th 400, 3rd 800), Shereen (3rd 200), Gary (4th 100), and the Girls 4by4 (3rd) (Bryan, Jerome, Friedrich, and Javier) medaled;
- Bobbie, Shereen, and the Girls 4X4 team established four new school records; and
- Eight athletes set personal records.
The team begins its next round of competitions later today, Tuesday, May 29, at Hackensack High School when they compete in the Bergen County Meet of Champions. Bobbie, Shereen, and the Girls 4X4 team (Friedrich, Bryan, Javier, Jerome - with Shereen in reserve) will compete at the Bergen County Meet of Champions. Their performances this season earned them this honor.
Next Friday, the eight qualifiers for the State Group Championship will compete at South Plainfield. The times and order of events will be the same as those of the Sectional Meet. The top six qualifiers in the State Group meet go on to the State Meet of Champions on Thursday, June 7th (3:30) at Carl Sandburg Middle School in Old Bridge.
