It’s been way too long since I last posted any content. I apologize this and will give myself 10 lashings for it. So much has happened over the year but let me start by sharing the Track & Field results.

  • Michelle Mazza of Ocean Twp. HS finished the indoor season with a throw of 41’10 and advanced this outdoor season to 43+!
  • Jada Taylor of Neptune HS threw 37+ with the spin and qualified for the Emerging Elite weight throw where she threw 40’10. (she only threw it once before to qualify for the New Balance Nationals. Most recently she has thrown another personal best of 38’5 in the shot put and 147ft in the discus. She won the Monmouth County Champion ships with a meet record throw of 141ft.
  • Eva Rondon finished her indoor season with a huge pr of 35’8!
  • Andrew Liskowitz of the Christian Brothers Academy (CBA) has officially signed with the University of Michigan, increased his throws to 59’10 (shot put) & 183 (discus) and won the Monmouth County Championships in both events.
  • Kevin Benson suprised even himself by dropping a bomb of 58’8 at the New Balance Nationals.  At the Penn Relays he placed 5th with a personal best of 173ft and most recently took the title in the discus for the Ocean County Championships.
  • Courtney Bryan of Rumson Fairhaven HS hit a pr of 28’5 this week (May 12th). That is a 4 foot pr from this time last year!
  • Brendan Loftus an 81th grader from Little Silver NJ is a new comer to the sport of T&F but has been advancing nicely. So far he has thrown the 8k 42+ft!!!!!
  • Alden Littlefield of Allentown HS has excelled to 54+ in the shot put with much more room to improve. He is only a junior and I expect big thing out of him over the next year.
  • Luke Grodeska of St Rose HS has improved on  his shot put 17ft in roughly a years time! He won the Indoor Meet of Champions with a throw of 61 ft and has recently shown that he will top out this year at 62+. Pretty good for a junior!
  • Andrew also from St. Rose HS is a sophomore that has glided over 52 ft and tossed the discus 148+. He has two more years to develop and there is no problem saying he will be a 63+ footer his senior year along with 180ft in the discus.
  • Sean Mirando a senior at Ocean Twp. HS has been kicking some ass also in the high hurdles and triple jump. To date he has triple jumped 39.3ft and high hurdled 14.27sec.
  • Kevin Mirando is a freshman from Ocean Twp HS. He plays football and competes in track. Most recently his has long jumped 19+ and triple jumped 39+. He will be the strongest and best punter in the Shore Conference from August until he graduates… BELIEVE IT!
  • Frankie Ahearn  has really moved his marks up since he signed with Wake Forest. His shot put personal best is 58+ and the discus is over 160ft.
  • Vlad Castillo Jr of Montgomery HS has gone over 55ft numerous times this year and currently has a pr in the shot put at 57+. The discus has been very consistent also at 160+ so we should see a big throw coming within the next 2 weeks.
