MADISON, NJ - Noah Wilde a junior on the Dodgers Cross Country Team who finished as Madison's No. 1 runner at the Morris County Champs has been chosen as one of two "Athletes of The Week" by TAPinto Madison. 

"This was the first race of the season in which Noah was the team's first runner.  His time of 17:51 is his best time on the Greystone park course where we run most of our meets," said his coaches.

"I like the Camaraderie of our cross country team," said Wilde. "Everyone on the team is good friends with everyone else. The night before meets we all go to someone's house for dinner. We cheer each other on and push each other to be better runners."

"This season I've continued to break my personal record for the 5K and have so far dropped my time about one minute from 18:47 to 17:52," he added. 

"Cross country isn't all about running fast. It's about pushing each other to be the best you can be, helping your teammates to do well so the whole team can be successful," said Wilde.
