North 2 , Group 1 State Sectionals
Greystone Park, Morris Plains
What a great day for our program! Boys 2nd and Girls 5th – State Sectional Medals. Our proud tradition continues. Believe me when I tell you that few Group 1 schools have the record of consistency and competitiveness that Secaucus HS does. You make me very proud to be your coach.
Honorable Mentions: Danny Chinchilla came in 3rd /17:27.77 – in his first season of cross-country. He narrowly missed the school record today for Greystone (17:23.8). Hats off to Sebastian Flood as he also earned a 8th place individual medal. We bring back the entire core of this team next year, but that is a story for another time. I want you to focus on doing your absolute best at next week’s Group meet. Let’s put the icing on the cake here. It has been a wonderful season for you guys, one more great run is in there somewhere!
I think the girls did a splendid job of getting it back together after some illness and injury managed to plague them during the season. It wasn’t pretty, but today showed some toughness and enabled you to have Secaucus HS medal for the 8th time in the last 9 years.
