St. Dominic Academy brought their A-game to win the team's first state relay title in school history on Friday night. The squad scored 48 points to win the Non-Public B meet, Hudson Catholic was second with 41, and Pingry School third at 40. 

Small School Big Heart

With a small amount of competitors to work with the SDA girls did a masterful job of competing in a multitude of events and getting the job done while doing so. We interviewed SDA senior Jessica Wisowaty, a prime example of doing all you could for the team, she competed in the 4x800m, the shuttle hurdles, cleared 4-08 in the high jump, and ran in the 4x400m. "We're a small school, everyone has to play a big part in the team," she stated, "Everyone trains for everything."

SDA won two events on the track including the shuttle hurdle relay with a time of 37.36 and the 4x800m running 10:27.94. The full team breakdown can be found in the table below. 

"We're getting better we're growing as a team, there's a lot more to come out of this," Wisowaty added. 

Pingry Sets new All-Group State Relay Pole Vault Record

Caroline Dannenbaum and Carol Ann Perry vaulted a total height of 23-06 on Friday. Not only to win the NPB Pole Vault Relay but to also set the All-Group meet record previously held by Hillsborough at 23-0 since 2012. 

Dannenbaum cleared 12-00 NJ#2 and Perry 11-06 NJ#4, both girls are only sophomores so get ready for that record to soar for seasons to come. The previous Non-Public B meet record was also held by Pingry, in fact it was Caroline Dannenbaum's sister Julia and their Coach Cortazzo's daughter Sophia who both set it in 2016 at 22-00.  

Hudson Catholic Sprint Team Runs Strong

Another highlight from the meet involved Hudson Catholic who ran 4:21.25 to win the sprint medley, they now rank NJ#8 this season. Hudson Catholic also won the 4x200 and 4x400.
