News from the Track - Jan 2020News from the Track:
The Boys team finished fourth overall and the Girls brought the championship back to Montclair. On January 12th we returned to action at the Essex County Relays, where the girls team brought home the championship and our boys team finished 2nd place. For the boys team this is the first time we have finished in the top 3 in the county in over 20 years; the last time this happened was on 1/9/00 when that team finished in 3rd place. The girls team beat runner up West Essex by 18 points and the boys team missed winning the championship by 1 point behind St. Benedict's Prep. 
At County Relays the girls 4x200 finished 2nd overall but their time has them ranked #7 in NJ and currently ranked 48th in the nation. The boys 4x200 also finished 2nd but are currently ranked #3 in NJ and 19th in the nation. The girls 4x400 won the event and are currently ranked #6 in NJ and 54th in the nation. The boys 4x4 finished 2nd in a very gutsy race which has them ranked #2 in NJ and #11 in the nation. The boys 4x400 ran a national qualifier and the boys 4x200, girls 4x2 and 4x4 were just hundreths of a second shy of national qualifiers. Out of all the 4x200's run in the nation between 1/6 and 1/12 the girls 4x200 time is 18th, the boys 4x200 is 6th and the boys 4x400 is 9th. It is still early in the season but there were a lot of notable performances that we will be looking to build on through the remainder of the season as this was only our 3rd meet. Below are the athletes/relays that won individual championships and those who finished in the top six which provides points to the total team score. Again we thank you all for your continued support
