Last week, eight schools met at Foley Field in Bloomfield, NJ to participate in the 8th annual NJNCAA Track and Field Meet sponsored by Newmark High School. Over 150 runners, jumpers and throwers took advantage of the perfect weather conditions to put their athletic skills on display.
Newmark High School had a few stand out performers during the days competition. Matthew M. took 1st place in the boys javelin with a throw of 104 feet, 1 inch as well as 1st place in the boys long jump at 16 feet 11 inches. Jacob R. finished 2nd in the boys 1600m run, 4th on the 800m run and 3rd in the long jump.
Daytop School took the overall team 1st place award, followed by Sage Day School and Deron School. Newmark finished in 4th place for the day. Congratulations to all of the athletes!
