Student, Coach, and Team Accomplishments Honored at Randolph High School Athletic Awards Night

June 15, 2014 at 11:01 PM

RANDOLPH, NJ- Recognition is one of the many aspects that go along with sports.  Every athlete wants to be recognized for his or her accomplishments on and off the field.  This is especially true for student athletes.  Balancing academics and the commitment to a team is a very difficult and time consuming process for a teenager.  The hard work that goes on all year long can take its toll on the body and mind.

On Thursday night, June 12th the student athletes of Randolph high school were recognized for their outstanding achievements.
