Spring Sports Update

Happy Monday Morning Everyone! Last week was wet and windy but we were able to get a few events in around the raindrops.  Here's a look at how our student-athletes performed:

Congratulations to all - especially the top 5 Track & Field finishers at the Moorestown Invitational on Saturday!  Medals were won by Kwinten Ives in the Long Jump and Triple Jump. Kwinten won both events and qualified for South Jersey Elite Meet later on in the year. Kwinten’s long jump is the longest in the state at this moment.  The boys 4X800 relay of Dominic Belton, Joe Russell, James Crean and Colin Broadbelt placed 5th. They also placed 4th in the distance medley.  Joe Russell placed 5th in the high jump. Check out what the SJ TrackBlog had to say about Kwinten's jump here.
