SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Elijah Brown and Conor Reilly turned in sensational performances to highlight a great weekend for the Union Catholic track and field teams. Brown blasted a sizzling victory in the 600-meter run at Saturday's Molloy Stanner Games at the 168th Street Armory in New York.

Wallace has run a US#5 1:21.80 this season. Pleasantville senior Gabriel Moronta is the NJ leader and US#3 with a 1:20.90.
