CRANFORD, NJ - Congratulations to this week’s athletes of the week Trey Pascual and Bella DeSimone.

Pascual, a senior on the winter track team led the pole vault relay team to its first Group 3 State Championship. Pascual also earned the best vault in Group 3 at 13 feet.

It’s about the jumping and the feeling of being in the air that Pascual loves about competing in the pole vault, “Seeing the bar not fall when you go over it is a great experience,” said Pascual.
