Summit Girls To Run At Penn Relays


Last year a breakthrough performance occurred as the Summit High School team of Isabella Yozzi, Rebecca Cummings, Bridget O’Brien, and Katie Watson qualified for the Championship of America Race in the DMR.  The team finished 8th overall and their time of 12:07.91 ranks 17th all-time in NJ Girls Penn Relays history.  This year, the Summit girl’s squad has qualified 3 relay teams and wants to add to past achievements.

On Thursday, April 26th, a very seasoned and successful Summit girl’s relay team will be running at the historic Penn Relays.  Their goal will be to qualify for the CoA Race in the 4x800.  Yozzi, and O’Brien, will join sophomore Gillian McIlroy, and junior Kirsty Gargiulo, in Thursday’s prelims.  A total time of 9:20 or under should be sufficient to advance.  This team has the potential to do so. 
While the distance races excelled in the past at Penn, our sprinters have fared just as well in their performances last year and this year.  Last year the foursome of Daria Chadwick, Aleixa Diaz, Hallie Burke, and Lauren Ng established a new school record in the 4 X 100 when they ran 50.93 at Franklin Field.  The same four are back a year a stronger and year faster, hoping to go under 50 seconds!
Finally, the school will be represented by a fast 4x400 relay team when seniors Chadwick and Diaz join with junior Rebecca Cummings and rising-star sophomore Jess Martins.  This team’s goal is to run around 4:08.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
