EGG HARBOR, NJ - Last weekend, members of the girls’ team competed in the Group 1 State Championships in Egg Harbor.

Coach Gregory Salmon said, “The other coaches and I could not have been happier with their performances at this meet, and their progression throughout the whole season. There was a lot of tough competition in all the events, and even though they were up against these odds, the girls showed their fierceness when they competed.”  The Coach added “They held themselves to their highest standards and competed at their best, which is exactly aligned to our coaching philosophy of “always try your best.””

The events highlighted included:

  • The girls 4x800 meter relay team of senior captain Emily Hochreiner, sophomore Carina Servello, freshman Lily Dvorchik, and freshman Maggie Barrasso placed 16th on Friday.
  • The following day, Hochreiner ran in the open 800, and ran a personal best of 2 minutes 35.99 seconds, beating her old personal best by three seconds.
  • The girls 4x400 meter relay team of junior captain Jessica Micolta, junior captain Sophie Pleva, sophomore Erica Carrie, and sophomore Sheila Flood ran their best time this season of 4:38.22.
  • Sophomore Caitlynn McTernan competed in three events: high jump and triple jump on Friday, and javelin on Saturday. She placed seventh in the high jump, 22nd in triple jump, and ninth in the javelin. In the javelin, McTernan threw her personal best of 101 feet 1 inch.

Coach Salmon then said, “The girls track team had a tremendous season, and we’re looking forward to next year. Good luck to our only senior, Emily Hochreiner, as she graduates Jonathan Dayton this month.”
