MADISON, NJ - Ed Dennerlein won the shot put and set a Chatham High School record and Nick Ferrone broke the school 55-meter dash record and was part of a record-setting relay team on Thursday as the Cougars opened the boys winter track season at the Jack O'Leary Lid Lifter held at Drew University.

Senior Dennerlein overcame all other throwers with his last throw of the finals with a Chatham school record toss of 50 feet, 6 inches. That throw broke the old mark of 49 feet, 6 inches set by Jake Neumann in 2011. 

In the 55-meter dash, Ferrone broke the old standard of 6.93 set in 2004 by David Cassila. He actually broke the record twice. In the preliminary round the junior qualified for the finals by dashing to a 6.91 finish. Ferrone then broke his own record by sprinting to a 6.84 finish and 2nd place overall. Ferrone won three medals overall.

In the 4 X 200, the team of Nick Ferrone, Justin Corbitt, Harris Eisenhardt, and Jaylen Haye sped to a 4th-place finish in 1:38.67 to set a school mark. The old record of 1:41 was set in 2011.

Tie for 6th in High Jump; Justin Corbitt at 5 ft. 3 inches.
