Rolling off some awesome notes from the last few days. 

This past Friday Matt Nelson won his THIRD STRAIGHT 3200m at Shore Conference Championships clocking a 9:26.36 NJ#4 in a strategic race. The amount of determination, training, and consistency to pull that off are rare to come by in one athlete. Congrats Matt.

Courtney Thompson of SJV break's Danielle Leavitt's 3200m record from last season at the Conference Champs meet running a 10:50.31, that is a US#11 and a NJ#1. She's coming off a fantastic XC season along with her teammate Tara Connelly who won the 1600m in 5:07.5 at this same meet. Congratulations on the record books Courtney!

Nick Eckett was causing a stir at the Pole Vault pit and had people go crazy on the vault pictured above as he cleared 15-01 breaking the meet record and taking the top spot in NJ Pole Vault. Awesome work Nick that was a sight to see!

Old Bridge boys AND girls sweep the Greater Middlesex Conference Champs thanks to fantastic efforts from their top stars. Hunterdon Central boys win the Skyland Conference Champs with a quality 73 points and Franklin girls take the girls with an 11 point lead of 62 points.

Ches Ready For Armory Dates

Two-time Foot Locker champion Edward Cheserek — who was mentioned on ESPN SportsCenter today — will run the mile at Saturday's New Balance Games and the two-mile at the Millrose Games on Feb. 16. (via Armory Track)

Giving Chase To History

As the New Balance Games' fields are announced, it is hard not to focus on Mary Cain's chase of a 40-year-old national high school record in the mile. At Saturday's Games she will certainly have a field that can help her get there. (via Armory Track)
