RANDOLPH, NJ- Randolph Youth Track and Field won its first home meet of the 2017 season on Sunday, April 23 against a very tough Mount Olive team.  This victory follows a win over a similarly talented Denville team on April 9 at Denville’s home track.

Randolph vs. Mt. Olive: Setting a High Bar for the Rest of the Season

Randolph dominated the 800m races, where the team not only took first place in every category but also second and/or third place, as well.  Aidan Byers, Carlie Wysocki, Connor Wysocki, Chelsea Renna, Evan Donovan, and Maya Wilkins all contributed to the wins. The Randolph distance runners also rocked the mile, winning points in every category.

The sprinters had their own long list of achievements, scoring points in every category for the 200m and taking two first place wins in the 100m: Ava Casareale (13-15) and Sebastien Denizard (11-12).

The boys 11-12 relay team of Preston Noble, Jesse Wilfong, Andre Melo, and Sebastien Denizard also brought home a win, as did the boys 13-15 team of David Turner, Darren Rice, Sean Harvey, and Christopher Keaney.

Sprinters and distance runners both tackle the challenging 400m, and in that event, Randolph also won points in every category.

Randolph had two first-place finishes in boys shot put - Lucas Piccolo (9-10) and Kristopher Charles (13-15) – and two for the girls - Kalanit Krasner-Cohen (11-12) and Janyce Wowk (13-15).

Long jumper Lilah Willis won the 9-10 girls category, while Aidan Byers (9-10) and Robert Dong (13-15) did the same for the boys.

Many Athletes, One Team

Randolph not only has many of the most competitive athletes in the Lakeland Track and Field League, but also boasts having one of the largest teams, with over 400 participants from grades 2 through 8. 

Many of these athletes started in Randolph’s “clinic” track program, where kids as young as 5 learn to run faster and jump further.   At this next level of competition, track team members compete in a wider range of events, including the 100m, 4x100m relay, 200m, 400m, 800m, mile, shot put and long jump.

The entire team practices twice a week and participates in 6 meets during the regular season.  Some athletes go on to compete in the Lakeland Relay Meet, Open Meet, and Championship Meet, in addition to other track and field events.

The track program relies on a small but dedicated army of adult volunteer coaches who help train the kids, along with student volunteers from the high school track team, many of whom came up through Youth Track and Field themselves.

Coaches not only focus on form but also on fun and good sportsmanship, encouraging each and every team member to strive for their personal best, support their teammates, and respect their Lakeland League opponents.

The Lakeland League was established in 1971 and is comprised of 16 teams.  Randolph primarily competes against other towns in the same division, including Hopatcong, Long Valley, Mendham, Montville, Mount Olive, Parsippany, Rockaway and Roxbury.
