CRANFORD, NJ – Congratulations to this week’s athletes of the week, Isabella DeSimone and Mark Colineri.

DeSimone, a junior on the varsity swim team, was a two-time winner at state tournament meets against Rumson Fairhaven and Lawrence, in the 50 and 100 freestyle and she set a new school record in the 50 freestyle. In addition, DeSimone was a part of the 200 freestyle relay team that broke its own record at the Union County Championship.

In her free time, the junior enjoys running and hanging out with her friends. DeSimone, also a member of the track team said, “I would like to participate in a sport in college, most likely it will be swimming.”

Colineri, a senior on the varsity bowling team, bowled a perfect game in the Union County Individual Finals and placed third overall in the county. Colineri commented on how quiet it was: “It was dead silent; all you could hear was the ball return and the pins, nobody wanted to cough or even breathe until I threw the ball and everyone erupted.” Colineri is possibly looking to attend NJIT in the fall and says it depends on his schedule whether or not he will bowl in college.
