The South Plainfield Winter Track Program continues to be one of the most successful teams during the Winter Athletic Season. The Girls’ have had success in the Greater Middlesex Conference Blue Division, winning both the Blue Division Relay and Blue Division Individual Championships last season. Much of this success is due to the consistency of junior Hailey Palmer.
Hailey Palmer is off to a fantastic start this winter track season. On Saturday, December 21st, Hailey broke her own school record in the 300 Meter Dash at the Demarest Invitational. This is the only meet of the season the 300 is run. Hailey was looking forward to the race since last year and surpassed her previous time by a tenth of a second. Hailey also brought home a medal while reaching her goal. On Friday, December 27th, at the Merli Invitational, Hailey ran a 7.79 in the 55-meter dash, setting a new school record in a second event in under a week. Hailey also placed in the 400 Meter Dash, and the 4 x 400 Meter Relay along with partners Lauryn McMillan, Isabelle Morin and McKayla Grabinsky. Hailey is just beginning her Winter Track Travels for 2020 and has her sights set on other big goals for herself and the team.
