CRANFORD, NJ – Congratulations to this week’s athletes of the week, sophomore gymnast Kelly McAuliffe and senior football player Will Budries.
McAuliffe competed in the state finals in floor this past weekend and was recently named First Team All-County in beam and Second Team All-County for bars and floor. When asked what she likes to do when she’s not in the gym, McAuliffe said, “I’m pretty much always in the gym.”
Budries had three receptions for 96 yards and two touchdowns and helped leading the Cougars to a, 56-7, victory over Voorhees, in the first round of the NJSIAA Playoffs. When he is not on the field, Budries said, “I’m either doing homework or hanging with family and friends.” The Cougars play Ridgefield Park this Friday, Nov. 20 in the semifinal round of states, 7 p.m., at Memorial Field.
