Each member of the team ran their best time of the season. Nicole's split was 2:28, Abbie's was 2:34, Moira's was 2:32, and Kate anchored in a 2:26. The team came in 12th overall.
Yesterday was a very tough day to compete with the extreme heat that we have not become acclimated to yet this season. But, the athletes persevered and we saw many PRs and season bests throughout the meet!
Highlights from the second day of the Morris County Championships:
Simone won the 100m hurdles, breaking her personal best time, the school record, and the meet record. She ran a time of 14.07 in the finals. Great job Simone!

Congratulations on a very successful day at Millburn Relays. Despite the heat & wind we had a great showing on and off of the track with 8 relay teams winning medals. Not only did we have teams placing in the top 6 but we also had many girls setting personal records. Your hard work this season is paying off!
Don't forget to sign up for our last dual meet on Monday, 5/1 at Montville HS. For some athletes this will be your last meet!
