RANDOLPH, NJ- Once again, the Randolph Rams track and field team is the crown jewel of Morris County. Led by a record setting performance from the girls jumpers, and a strong showing by boys’ hurdlers and jumpers, both squads outpaced the competition by a wide margin.

The girls jumped over the pack by accumulating 98 points, ahead of second place Roxbury (65) and third place Mendham (47), while the boys recorded 90 points, hurdling over second place Boonton (51) and third place Delbarton (45).

The girls jumpers made history when they swept all four team events ( Long  Jump, High Jump, Triple Jump, and Pole Vault) at the County tournament for the first time in history.  Team members and results for each event were:
