Athletes of the Week

Week 5


This week's honorees are two athletes who turned in the fastest times over the State Championship Holmdel Park layout this weekend at the Shore Coaches Invitational. Both are from small, private schools and are underclassmen. Their races were early in the day and their winning marks set the standard for the rest of the day's races. Join me in congratulating the well deserving recipients of ATHLETE of the WEEK

Boys Athlete of the Week: Liam Mullett


 Team: The Pingry School (Martinsville)


 Graduation: 2014


This Week: Winner of the "F" Race @ the Shore Coaches Invitational

Like his counterpart this week, Liam won the first Varsity race on Saturday, but with a cruel twist. With a pretty good lead on runnerup Josiah Hanko, Liam drove for the line, hoping to get under the magical 16:00 barrier. It was not to be this day as Liam hit 16:00 exactly, still ending up with the days top Boys time.
