SPRINGFIELD, NJ – On Sunday, the Jonathan Dayton boys and girls track teams participated in the Central Jersey Group 1 Sectional in Toms River, New Jersey.  The girls team finished eleventh. 

Coach VanDuersen said, “The Central Jersey Group 1 section is most likely the strongest section for our school size. We did have some strong performances despite the fact that we have such a young group.  We also experienced a little bit of bad luck in some of the events, but it's important for the kids to know that these things happen in races.  They gained important experience yesterday.  Our girls relay qualified for the Group 1 State Championships and they'll compete on Friday February 17th. As the season closed for most of the student-athletes, I think the kids are excited about what could be a very promising spring.”

Here are the results of the girls’ events:
