NORTH ARLINGTON, NJ  --  Coming off a strong showing in last weekend’s Mountie Relays, the Wood-Ridge boys and girls track team braved the cold and wind yesterday to split a NJIC dual meet against North Arlington. The Blue Devils boys team finished second in the small school division over the weekend

Behind strong performances from Tedi Turka, winning the triple jump and high jump, and Johnoi Martin, first in the 400 Intermediate hurdles, and second in the triple jump, the boys edged North Arlington, 73-70.    Evan West took first in the 400 meters, while Robert Caruso and John Sloan also turned in strong efforts.

Sloan took second in the 3200 meters as an emergency replacement for a runner who was ill and not able to complete.

The girls' team dropped their half of the meet 80-40.  Outstanding performances from Shaye Whaley in the 800 meters and Christina Vazquez paced the Lady Blue Devils.  Vazquez filling in for another runner who was under the weather, turned in good performances in the 400 meters, 400 meter hurdles, the 1600 meters and 3200 meters.

First year head coach Mallory Garvin is excited about her team’s prospects.

“We have a very talented group of athletes, “ Garvin stated.  “Many of them are young, especially on the girls side. I am certain this is going to be our strongest season in years given the incredible amount of talent and dedication we have on our team. We have an extraordinary group of athletes.”
