BOSTON, MA - Gov. Livingston graduate Steve "Monty" Monteleone ('08) completed the Boston Marathon on April 20, crossing the finish line in 2:37 --  finishing 191st out of thousands of the "elite" runners.

"It has always been a dream of mine to qualify and then race in the Boston Marathon," said Monteleone. "I ran the New Jersey Marathon last April in Long Branch, and qualified for Boston with a 2:39."

Monteleone surpassed his goal in finishing in the top 300 and beating his New Jersey Marathon time. "I was extremely thrilled of accomplishing both of my goals by running a 2:37 and coming in 191st place overall," said Monteleon.

 More than 30,000 people participate in the 26.2-mile race, which runs from the town of Hopkinton west into the heart of Boston.

The Boston Marathon is considered to be one of the more difficult marathon courses because of the Newton hills, which culminate in Heartbreak Hill near Boston College according to Wikipedia. 

Monteleone typically sticks to half-marathons or 5Ks, so don't be surprised when you see his name on the top of the charts at the Berkeley Heights' 5K road races. 

Monteleone was the 2010 All-Landmark Conference Selection and two-time team MVP for Drew University, turning in the Landmark's Top 5K time in 2010 of 15:45.30 according to the official website of Drew University Athletics.

What's Hot and What's Not

Summer is a great time to take a step back, sip a cool beverage, and take a look at what’s going on in the world of college admissions.  Departments use the summer to evaluate how their year went and plan on any changes they want to make for the fall.  Did they over-enroll? Under-enroll?  What application materials were useful to them?  Which were redundant or time ...
