The spring sports season is officially underway. With many of the high school sports being rained out the opening day of April 1, 2017, the Girls’ Spring Track team competed at the Rocket Relays down at Raritan High School. The Lady Tiger Throwers dominated a very competitive shot put field. This was accomplished in part by junior Kayla Greenleaf.
Kayla enters the season as a two year letter winner, specializing in the Shot Put and Discus. Her sophomore campaign was highlighted by a 4th place finish in the GMC Individual meet as well as a selection to the 1st team all division in the shot put. This past weekend Kayla and her relay partner, Brianna Atkinson, won the overall meet relay in the shot put. Kayla bested the competition in her final throw by over a foot, throwing 32’ 2’’. The Lady Tigers look forward to much more success and leadership from Kayla as the season progresses.
Each week the South Plainfield High School Athlete Department will feature an athlete of the week.
