The girls used a come from behind effort to edge out Mendham by a close 75-70 margin.  They had two key gold medals that helped make that happen.  One was the 3,200 meter relay team of Liz Wellman, Margaret Thomson, Carole Harsch, and Nora May McSorley, finishing in 9:32.08.  Their other gold came in the distance medley, with a team of Carole Harsch, Marley Bracklemanns-Puig, Marianne Loeken, and anchor Liz Wellman finishing in 12:19.93

On the boys’ side, the Rams ran away with the title in a landslide, finishing with 96 points to second place Mendham’s distant 64.  The highlight was the long jump team of Anthony Zarro, Carlo Zarro, and Greg Stickle whose long anticipated jump into the record books finally came to fruition.  With jumps of 23-0 for Anthony, 20-11 for Carlo, and 22-6 for Stickle, their total of 66-5 crushed the county record which stood at 63-9.
