Three Summit Sports Records Fall

SUMMIT, NJ - The Lady Hilltoppers have been tearing up the record books lately. In the past three weeks three school records have been broken including a new Union County Relay record.

Senior Daria Chadwick broke the 200m Summit record while leading the girls’ team to the Mountain Division Conference Championship on May 12. Chadwick's time was 26.28 bettering Susan Scavone's time of 26.31 which was set in 2008. Scavone just completed her four year career at Brown University recently.

University of Hartford-bound Aleixa Diaz took down one of the oldest records on the board when she won the Union County title in the 400IH with a time of 63.18 on May 18. The previous record of 63.7 was set in 1981 by Ellen Eckert. Diaz's efforts helped contribute to a third place overall finish for the girls at the Union County Championships.

Finally, in less than perfect conditions, sophomore Gillian McIlroy, Junior Kirsty Gargiulo, and Penn State-bound Bridget O'Brien and Johns Hopkins-bound Isabella Yozzi teamed on the 4x1600m relay and combined to run 21:21.15 at the East Coast Relays. Their time improved upon the 21:28.3 that was set in 2009 by Nicola Hallenborg ('10), Kearsley Olcott ('10), Danielle Allocco ('09), and Katie Watson ('11).  Including the 21:36.58 that Samantha Lee ('07), Alisa Stern ('04), Clare Needham ('04), and Caroline Mannaerts ('04) ran in 2004, the Hilltoppers now own the 3 fastest times 4x1600 times in Union County history and this years’ time ranks as the fourth fastest in NJ this season.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
