Thirty-five runners from the WolfPack Track Club were among nearly 600 athletes that competed at the State Junior Olympics Championships on November 1, 2015 at Central Park of Morris County, NJ. This was one of the biggest and most competitive meets in years with several course records broken. Eight runners from the WolfPack Track Club finished in the top 20 from their Age Division advancing them to the Regional Junior Olympics in Black Creek Park, North Chili, N.Y. on November 22, 2015.

Coach Steve SanAntonio said, “The other WolfPack runners that did not place in the top-20 put in great efforts and nearly made the cut. This is an extremely young team with very little experience in training and competing. But what they lack in experience they make up with a big heart. With a little more time, I see a great future for our team members. We grow them slow for a sustained future”. Coach Jen SanAntonio said, “I and our coaching staff are so proud of the children and we look forward to another successful season next year. Our joy comes from the success and smiles that comes from the children, and we do that one step at a time, one day at a time, and one month at a time. All the moments are relished and that’s the recipe for success”.

PAL Runners that finished in the top twenty in New Jersey include:
