In the girls pole vault Sydney Woods of Northern Valley Demarest cleared 12-0 for third, looking back at this same meet last year she finished with a height of 9-0 and her previous best was 11-0! The 12-0 height would have been top five in the state for the entire season in 2017.
Union Catholic had their way with things as a team winning nine events between boys and girls! Some highlights include... Jerika Lufrano who won the mile with a solid early season time of 5:16.16... The boys 4x200 meter team ran 1:32.86 to lead the 4x200 meter... Sophomore Elijah Brown won the 400 meter dash with an indoor PR of 50.85, previous best was a 51.32...

Brandon Patterson won the shot put with a mark of 52-01.75, a very solid season opening PR for him with his previous indoor best coming in at 51-3. Patterson exploded for a launch of 57-06.25 last spring, could be a strong season for this senior.
