BASKING RIDGE, NJ – Dayton girls track team competed this weekend at the North II Group I State Sectional Championship at Ridge High School. Our girls team tied for fifth place with 38 points.

According to Coach Gregory Salmon, “Though all the girls that competed put in their best efforts, the most outstanding performances were made by sophomore Caitlynn McTernan. Caity scored 26 points total by winning the Javelin with a personal best throw of 99 feet 7 inches.  She also won the High Jump with a personal best jump of 5 feet, and came in third in the Triple Jump with a personal best jump of 34 feet 2.5 inches.”

The coach went on to say that “Senior Captain Emily Hochreiner placed fifth in the 800 meter run, going out strong against tough competition.”  He also mentioned the girls 4x800 team, which came in third place with anchor sophomore Carina Servello “…racing the last leg of the race harder than she's even gone to keep the girls in third.”

Freshman Samantha DeJohn placed fifth in the High Jump despite the slick surface from the rain while she jumped. The girls 4x400 team was the last event to run and they finished in fifth place.

The girls and relays mentioned above will all go on to compete next Friday and Saturday at the Group I State Championships in Egg Harbor Township.

Coach Salmon then said, “The coaches and I are very happy with all the performances of the girls this weekend, and we're excited to see how they compete this coming weekend.”
