Victoria Vanriele of Governor Livingston ran an indoor 1600m PR of 5:04 to win her race. She had already opened this season strong with a 1:37.10 in the 600m at the Bishop Loughlin Games a few days prior. 

In the pole vault Melissa Purcell of Pascack Valley cleared 11-6 to move up to NJ#3 on the young season. Her previous indoor PR was 11-0, she did vault 12-6 at the outdoor Meet of Champions last spring though.  

Amanda Katz of Ramapo and Lauren Stern of Mahwah had impressive marks in the triple jump, an event we don't get to see very often indoors in New Jersey. Lauren Stern led the way with a 36-7.5 and Katz second with 36-7.25

William Baginski of Ridgewood ran a strong early season 1600m finishing at 4:26.9, an indoor PR.  Tyler Hrbek tied his Old Tappan teammate Seth Kricheff for NJ#2 this season with his winning 14-6 pole vault performance.
