EAST HANOVER, NJ- Hanover Park senior, Olivia Duffy won the Shot Put event with a throw of 39’ 8” in the MCT track and Field Events held at Boonton High School. She also placed third in the Discus event.

Olivia continues the long tradition of quality performance from Hanover Park's athletes in the field portion of track and field events.  She was approached by Coach Maggio in her sophomore year to try out for track and that decision has been a win/win for her and Coach Maggio. Olivia is looking forward to the sectional meets that will be held in Madison. She is the second seed in the Shot Put event, and hopes to qualify for the Meet of Champions held in June.

She will be attending the University of Delaware in the fall and plans on trying to make the track team as a walk-on. Her favorite quote is "well behaved women rarely make history." Her dream job would be a dietitian and she would like to go on vacation in Mexico.
