The weather diminished South Brunswick’s results in a track meet, as the Lady Cougars fell 17 points shy of first place.
“Because of the rainout on Wednesday and the continuation of the meet on Thursday, I lost five key athletes to a school trip to Washington, D.C.,” said South track coach Christine Kazmierczak. “They did not get to come back on Thursday and compete. So, unfortunately, we lost to Pender. We came in second.
“That was a tough loss because we have outperformed and outscored everyone all year by such considerable numbers —an average of 75 points a meet, and many with as much as 120 points over the next closest team.
“But I am very proud of all my girls. They really stepped up, bettered all their own personal records in the process, and filled in all my missing relay slots on Thursday to keep us at a close second.”
Meet MVPs were running events, Suzanne Costello, South Brunswick; field events, Nicole Ray, South Brunswick, and track and field, Jasmine Young, East Columbus.
Also, Crystal Jones won the girls 200 meters last week for South Brunswick.
