RANDOLPH, NJ - Randolph’s boys track and field team has three members making a strong run to “Jump” into the Morris County record books. In the three-man long jump event, Senior Anthony Zarro, Junior Greg Stickle, and Freshman Carlo Zarro have formed quite a team this season.
In a tri-meet against Chatham and West Morris, Anthony Zarro jumped 21-10-3/4, Stickle jumped 21-3, and Carlo Zarro jumped 21-2-1/4, for a team total of 64-4. This mark actually bested the Morris County record, which stands at 63-9-1/4.
However, for a mark to be considered official in terms of being a record, it must take place in a relay meet. With a similar performance in any of their upcoming meets, they will be able to write their names into the county record books.
At the Morris Hills Relays, Nora May McSorley helped lead the girls track and field team to a first-place finish among 23 total teams. McSorley, who is only a sophomore, anchored Randolph’s winning 4x800 relay team, which also consisted of Liz Wellman, Margaret Thomson, and Carole Harsch. McSorley followed that up with a personal best (2:15.6) on the anchor leg of the runner up sprint medley.
Other first place finishers included the Girls Distance Medley Relay, whose team consists of Carole Harsch, Marley Brackelmanns-Puig, Marianne Loeken, and Margaret Thomson. For the boys, who finished fourth overall out of 23 teams, a first place finisher was the Team Long Jump consisting of Anthony Zarro, Carlo Zarro and Greg Stickly at 59-8-2. A record setting performance was turned in by the boys Team Intermediate Hurdles. Colin McAlmont, Stephen Nalbach, and Dan Leanza posted a mark of 2:51.15 which is a new meet record besting a mark that stood since 2007.
