Last year he placed in the top five in the 800 and 1600 at both sectionals and states and went on to take 10th in the 1600 at the Meet of Champions. He was also the Camden County champion in the mile. Seniors Andrew Massaro, Brian Hutchison, Grant Melko, Sean May and Manik Dhawan are other top returners in the distance and middle distance events, while seniors Nasir Menoken-El and Mike Doctorovitz shine in the sprints. Senior Andrew Sobocinski also left his mark at the major meets, placing third in the discus and sixth in the javelin at the county meet to go with a sixth in the javelin at sectionals and states.

ATHLETES TO WATCH: Cherokee has talented returners throughout the lineup starting with its distance runners. Junior Chris Spisak was the Olympic Conference and Burlington County champion in the 3200 last spring and had top-five finishes in the event at both sectionals and states. He went on to place 12th at the Meet of Champions (MOC). Junior Ethan Wechsler placed seventh in the 1600 at sectionals and is coming off a sensational cross country season in the fall in which he won the Group IV state championship. Junior Chase Miller is another solid distance runner. Senior Will Delendik took first in the 100 at the conference meet and placed in the top 10 at sectionals. Delendik and junior Andrew Elsey also ran on Cherokee’s 4x100 relay, which took first in the conference, second at sectionals, fourth at states and 14th at the MOC.

CHERRY HILL EAST COUGARS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: An impressive group of throwers led by seniors Nick Kokolis and Sean Welsh is one of the strong points for Cherry Hill East. Kokolis was the Olympic Conference champion in the discus last year and placed second at the Camden County meet. He went on to finish sixth at sectionals and 18th at states, and is also an accomplished shot put thrower. Welsh claimed the conference title in the javelin and placed third in the county. His sixth-place effort at sectionals earned him a trip to states, where he took home 16th. Senior Nick Gazzola also specializes in the javelin—he took second in the conference—and other returning throwers are seniors Josh Bellon and Phillip Drebick and junior Christian Torres. Junior Lucas Tran is a standout in the pole vault who placed third in the county and eighth at sectionals, and senior Marc Andre shines in both hurdles events. Senior Josh Faria, juniors Ryan Klinger and Anthony Mathis and sophomores George Parsons, Ethan Smith and Owen O’Connell are returning sprinters. Parsons looked especially strong during indoor track season. Freshman Dillon Page and sophomore Phillip Trieu are promising high jumpers who jumped 5-10 and 5-8, respectively, during indoor track.
OUTLOOK: The Cougars hope to move up a few spots from their sixth-place finish at the county meet and 13th at sectionals, and make sure to keep an eye on Cherry Hill East during the throwing events.


CHERRY HILL WEST LIONS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Senior Jonathan Henz was a top competitor for Cherry Hill West last season, with a high finish of second in the triple jump at the Olympic Conference meet. He also placed fifth in the event at the Camden County meet and ninth at sectionals and competes in the hurdles as well. Clay Burke is another senior leader who placed in the top 10 in both the long jump and triple jump at the county meet, and senior Ryan Boone is also strong in the long jump. Junior Karl Eberhardt has potential in all three throwing events, as shown by his top 20 performances in the discus, javelin and shot put at the county meet. On the track, sophomore Khalil Hughes is a promising sprinter, junior Timothy Sinh specializes in the 800 and senior Juan Coss is a returning hurdler.
OUTLOOK: The Lions have a solid core in place and will look to make steady progress throughout the season under new head coach Hamisi Tarrant.


CLEARVIEW PIONEERS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Senior Troy Bentancur, a talented sprinter and standout long jumper who qualified for states, is poised for a big final season and leads the way for Clearview. He recorded a jump of 20 feet, 7 inches at sectionals to place fifth in the long jump and went on to take 12th at states. He also took eighth in Gloucester County and 11th in the Tri-County Conference in the event and contributes in the 100 and 200 as well. Junior Zion Fearon placed fourth in the county in the 400 hurdles and fifth in the conference in the 400 meters, and finished in the top 20 in both events at sectionals. Another promising returner is sophomore distance runner Anas Bensaoud, who placed fifth in the county, sixth in the conference and 10th at sectionals in the two-mile. Junior Troy Black is a top competitor in a number of events, including the sprints and long jump, while senior Alex Nguyen and junior Vincent Fedoryka are also returning sprinters. Sophomore Jack Rhoades had a strong indoor track season and is expected to be the top middle distance runner.

Junior Hunter Weiss also contributes in the jumps and the deep crop of throwers includes seniors Anthony Maciocha and Aidan Romano and juniors Joseph Polistina, Nick Matalucci and James Sharkey.
OUTLOOK: After placing seventh in the county and 12th at sectionals last spring, the Pioneers hope to remain competitive in the major meets and Bentancur will look to qualify for states again along with several of his teammates.


EASTERN VIKINGS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Eastern suffered big losses to graduation and will look to rebuild around a pair of senior throwers and some up-andcoming returners on the track. Senior Emmanuel Azuonwu placed second at the Camden County meet in the shot put and eighth at sectionals and will aim to qualify for states in his final season. He also competes in the hurdles. Senior Rocco Tursi took fifth in the county and 20th at sectionals in the javelin, and added a sixth-place finish at the county meet in the discus. Senior Anthony Lafferty and junior Robert Meekins are other experienced throwers. Sophomore Carl Jordan showed potential in several events as a rookie, including the 400 and 400 hurdles, and junior Oscar Andrews should continue to improve in the middle distance races. Senior Alex Andrews and junior Aaron Arnstein are accomplished distance runners and sophomore Tavion Corbett-Collier contributes in the jumps. OUTLOOK: Although the Vikings may not be ready to compete for team titles at the championship meets this spring, they have several individuals who will leave their mark.


GLOUCESTER CATHOLIC RAMS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Gloucester Catholic graduated its only state qualifier but has several returners who will aim for that goal this spring. Junior Ryan DiGiacomo contributes in a number of events, including the 400, 800 and long jump. He placed 11th in the 400 and 13th in the 800 at sectionals.

HADDONFI ELD BULLDAWGS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Haddonfield should once again be paced by its outstanding distance and middle distance runners, including senior Derek Gess, who repeated as the sectional champion in the 800 last year and placed second in the 1600. He went on to place second in the 800 and third in the 1600 at states, and ended his season with a seventh in the 800 at the Meet of Champions (MOC). Gess will continue his career at the Naval Academy. Greg Eisenhower, a Bucknell commit, is another senior leader who took third at sectionals and seventh at states in the two-mile. Junior Martin Riddell had top-five runs in the 1600 and 3200 at sectionals and a sixth in the 3200 at states, and senior Griffin Weiner placed sixth at sectionals in the 800 and 20th at states. Gess, Weiner, Eisenhower and Riddell also teamed up to win a sectional title, place second at states and 12th at the MOC in the 4x800 relay. Other runners who will contribute in the middle and distance races are seniors Ethan Spellmeyer and Sean Campiglia and juniors Andrew Gostovich and Stephen Kasko. Haddonfield’s top two sprinters did not compete last year because of injuries but are primed for big bounce-back seasons. Senior Luke Colehower is a Rutgers commit who won the 400 at the indoor MOC as a sophomore before battling injuries that spring and all of last year. Senior Zach Murray had a strong indoor season and will be looking to ride that momentum into the spring in the 400 and 800. Juniors Arthur Keegan, Aidan Kamp and Thomas Mollis and sophomore Alessandro Meucci are other returning sprinters. Meucci also competes in the hurdles along with sophomores Kayvus Trajano and Quinn Boyle, while senior John Foley and junior Sebastian Guzman shine in the jumps.

Sophomore Liam Campiglia showed potential in the javelin as a rookie and other experienced throwers are seniors Sean Mansfield, Ryan Colflesh and Ethan Lee and sophomore Matthew Carey.
OUTLOOK: The Bulldawgs’ accomplishments in 2018 included a fifth-place finish at sectionals and a third at states. They have the talent to be in contention at those meets again this season and several competitors will be in the mix for individual titles as well.


KINGSWAY DRAGONS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Kingsway is excited to welcome back a pair of competitors who ended the 2018 spring season at the Meet of Champions (MOC). Junior Stone Caraccio’s outstanding sophomore season included sectional and Gloucester County titles in the 1600 and a fourth- place finish at states before his 12th-place effort at the MOC. He also took second in the county in the 800, second at sectionals in the 3200 and 15th at states in the 3200. Senior Orion Joyner was the sectional champion in the triple jump, took sixth at states and 22nd at the MOC. He also placed second in the county and third in the Tri-County Conference in the event and is a standout hurdler as well. Senior Eron Daniel was right behind Joyner at sectionals, finishing second in the triple jump, and moved on to states. He also competes in the high jump and long jump. Junior Michael Williams could be ready for a breakout year in the 100 and 200, and other sprinters are sophomore Eric Williams and junior Shyheim Boardley-Smith.

LENAPE INDIANS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Jake Mohnacs’ sophomore season was highlighted by a trip to states and he is poised for a big junior campaign. He punched his ticket with a sixth-place finish in the pole vault at sectionals, and he also took second at the Olympic Conference meet in the event. Senior Matt Doerner is another key returner who was the conference champion in the 110 hurdles and is also a contributor in the long jump and triple jump. Seniors Jack Flatley and Rajvir Singh are also returning hurdlers and the talented crop of sprinters includes seniors Amir Byrd and Brandon Carter and sophomore Hamza Bruce. Experienced runners in the middle distance and distance events are seniors James Vizzard, Zaven Kazandjian, Desmond Morton, Demaar Bey and Ondra Kinder and junior Matt Richardson.

MOORESTOWN QUAKERS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Seniors Brendan McGettigan and Nick Cartwright-Atkins both qualified for states last spring and will look to book a return trip in their final season at Moorestown. After missing his sophomore season with an injury, McGettigan made a strong return last year. He cleared 13 feet in the pole vault at sectionals to place second and went on to take 12th at states. Cartwright-Atkins, who is also a star in football and basketball, took sixth at sectionals in the 400 hurdles and placed 14th at states. He competes in the 110 hurdles and sprints as well. Senior James Walker is another returning sprinter and Moorestown has a deep and talented core of distance runners: senior Jack Farmer and juniors Jackson Joyce, Louis Purul, Ethan Denis and Victor Demartini. Senior John Locatell joins McGettigan as a returning pole vaulter.
OUTLOOK: The Quakers hope to remain competitive at the major meets and it will be exciting to see what McGettigan and Cartwright-Atkins can accomplish on an individual level.


PAUL VI EAGLES
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Paul VI graduated a phenomenal sprinter in Antonio Tarantino—the Meet of Champions winner in the 200—but a lot of talent remains on the roster, including three returning state qualifiers. Senior Robert Bush ran the 100 at states after taking eighth at sectionals, and is also a contributor in the long jump. Senior Brian Brown is another returning sprinter who focuses on the 200 and 400, placing in the top 10 of both at sectionals. He went on to finish eighth in the 400 at states. Junior Drew Williams joined them at states, placing 10th in the long jump. He also took seventh in the event at sectionals and second at the Camden County meet. Juniors RJ Walsh and Matt Martino are other strong sprinters and junior Colton Johnson is a top competitor in the 800 as well as the javelin. Seniors Ryan Tenerelli, Tyler Gargano and Matthew Slattery lead the distance runners and experienced hurdlers are juniors Sebastian Georges and Chris Cavalieri and senior Osami Unuigbe. Junior Nick Miscioscia contributes in the 400 and jumps. Experienced throwers are juniors Ethan Diogo and Brennan Delp and seniors Charles Wigginton, Isaiah Taylor and Michael Pullman.

OUTLOOK: With Tarantino leading the way last year, the Eagles had a memorable season highlighted by a fifth-place finish at sectionals and a sixth at states. He clearly cannot be replaced, but this still has the makings for a successful season.


SENECA GOLDEN EAGLES
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Seneca’s only state qualifier from 2018 graduated, but two returners placed in the top 10 at sectionals and hope to take the next step this season. Junior Anthony Corona placed ninth in South Jersey Group III in the javelin with a throw of 138 feet, 10 inches. Senior Kaden Hastie took 10th at sectionals in the long jump—after placing second in the event in the Olympic Conference—and also runs the 100 and 200. Both will be key leaders for the Golden Eagles. Joining Hastie in the sprints and jumps are juniors Chris Miller and Anthony Lopez. Senior Austin Hauer and sophomore Jackson McHugh run the 400 and juniors Bryce McMaster and Ryan Rosenthal compete in the 800.

OUTLOOK: It would not be surprising to see the Golden Eagles move up a few spots at the major meets and several individuals will have a chance to compete at states.
SHAWNEE RENEGADES
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Shawnee has tough competitors returning throughout the lineup, including senior Brian Lorenz. He placed second in the Olympic Conference in the 800 and 12th in the event at sectionals and will look to qualify for states in his final cam- paign.

OUTLOOK: The Renegades might not be in contention for team titles at the championship meets but they will certainly make their presence felt.


WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP MINUTEMEN
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Junior Jayden Greene had a breakout season as a soph- omore and will be one of the top competitors for Washington Township this spring. He took second in the Olympic Conference in the 400 and was also part of two relays that competed at states. The 4x800—which also included current senior Evan Chu—placed 11th at states with a time of 8:04.23. The 4x400 clocked a 3:27.55 to finish 22nd. Greene, who is coming off a terrific indoor season, ranges from the 100 to the 800 and will also be adding the 400 intermediate hurdles to his repertoire. Senior Kenneth Flood is another talented sprinter who also shines in the triple jump and will be competing in the hurdles as well. He emerged as one of the area’s top sprinters during indoor season. Seniors Kevon Byrd and Anthony Trombetta, sophomores Mike Dressner and Omar Castro and freshman Tracy Marshall are other sprinters, and junior Sebastian Aseron runs the 400. Chu took sixth in Gloucester County in the 800 and also runs the 1600, and sophomore Julian Lawson runs the 800. Senior Austin Milou placed ninth at sectionals in the twomile and has continued to progress during cross country and indoor track, raising expectations for his final spring season. Other distance runners are seniors Chris Shaw and Aiden Wall and sophomores Cole Kolodziej and Mason Brewster. Senior Nick Keehn will be a major contributor in the pole vault and the hurdles, junior Aaron Stevens is also back in the hurdles and junior Andrew McGinley has developed into an elite high jumper who cleared 6 feet during indoor season.

GIRLS TRACK

BISHOP EUSTACE CRUSADERS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Bishop Eustace returns a dynamic pair of seniors who will look to cap their scholastic careers in style. Katy Storti placed second at sectionals and states in the 3200 last spring and competed in the event at the Meet of Champions (MOC). She also placed in the top five in the 1600 at both sectionals and states, and this past fall she ended her standout cross country career at Eustace by taking 13th at the MOC. The other top returner is Hannah Steacker, who was the sectional champion in the javelin and placed third in the event at states. Junior Peyton Klopp also advanced to states in the javelin, placing eighth, and junior Victoria Sims just missed a berth when she took ninth at sectionals. Juniors Leighanna Gray and Katie Bjorklund are other experienced throwers. Senior Caroline Steeves leads the sprinters along with senior Bethany Garcia and sophomores Racquel Ramey and Rachel Sobocinski. Seniors Margaret Schwab (800) and Maura Gallagher (1600) each placed 11th at sectionals and other strong distance runners are seniors Kat Soanes and Clare Morelli and junior Rachel Orr. Junior Veronica Figueroa and seniors Caitlin Deffler and Helen Closkey are returning hurdlers and sophomore Charlotte Gottilla shows promise in the high jump.
OUTLOOK: After placing sixth at sectionals and 10th at states in 2018, the Crusaders have a solid nucleus intact and it will be exciting to see Storti and Steacker add to their accomplishments.


CAMDEN CATHOLIC FIGHTING IRISH
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Two state qualifiers are back to lead Cam- den Catholic, including junior sprinter Sierra DiCupe, who made it for the second straight year. After running the 200 at states as a freshman, she qualified in the 100 as a sophomore and placed fifth with a time of 12.74 seconds. Senior Eliana Santana reached states in both the discus and shot put, placing fourth and 14th, respectively. She was in the top five in both events at sectionals and was also the Olympic Conference National Division champion in the discus. Senior Sayndia Sando contributes in the high hurdles, long jump and triple jump—she placed in the top 15 in all three at sectionals—and Kim Powers is another senior leader who took second in the conference and 10th at sectionals in the 800. Senior Danielle Rooney is an accomplished long jumper, and returners in the sprints include senior Judith Okwamba and sophomores Katrina Dixon and Satine Elzey. Senior Annie Miles and sophomore Taylor Gardner return in the distance races.
OUTLOOK: The Irish made big steps forward as a program last spring and will look to continue the progress this year, with DiCupe and Santana leading the way.


CHEROKEE CHIEFS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Junior Kate Rathman earned her first trip to the outdoor Meet of Champions (MOC) last spring and will look to punch her ticket once again this year. The Olympic Conference American Division champion in the 1600, she took fourth in the event at sectionals, seventh at states and 17th at the MOC. She excels at the two-mile as well and placed second in Burlington County. Senior Brianna King is another tough competitor who finished in the top 10 at sectionals in the 400 and 800. She also took second in the conference in the 400 and runs the 100. Senior Kianah Jordan and juniors Joynee Bowers, Jaden Sweely and Chloe Pasquarello are other returning sprinters and junior Kailyn Clark is a key veteran in the hurdles. The distance runners include junior Alyssa Blackmon and sophomores Erin Jackson, Meghan Carroll and Adriana Sommese. Cherokee also welcomes back a deep list of throwers: juniors Gabrielle Schrier, Fejiro Akiri and Sydney Lore and seniors Rebecca Palais, Breann Bickmore, Sydney Clifton and Madeline Ball.
OUTLOOK: The Chiefs hope to move up a few spots at the major meets and Rathman expects to be in contention for an individual title or two.


CHERRY HILL EAST COUGARS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Senior Maya Drayon has established herself as one of the best sprinters in South Jersey over the last two years and is poised for a big final season before moving on to Georgetown. At sectionals last year, she placed third in the 100, sixth in the 200 and fifth in the 400. She also finished in the top 20 in all three races at states. Senior Sarah Pierce is another impact runner, except she leaves her mark in the distance events. She took fifth in the mile at sectionals and followed that up with an 18th at states. Sophomore Zeyonna Davis hopes to join Drayton as a difference-maker in the sprints after a promising rookie season, and junior Paoly Siri adds depth in the 100. Laylani Nazario, a junior transfer, will also contribute in the sprints and relays, and freshman Giana Holness is expected to have a huge impact in the 800, 400 hurdles and 4x400 relay. Seniors Bay Wilson and Dani Lazarus shine in the 800 and returning distance runners are sophomores Isabel Slimm, Jane Cai and Sabrina Rounds. Senior Percy Tse and junior Amy Son are top competitors in the long jump and triple jump, while Tse also competes in the hurdles along with junior Caroline Kelly. Senior Aliyah Anderson, a gymnast who decided to try track this year, is a welcome addition in the high jump. She cleared 5 feet in the winter despite no experience in the event. Junior Orgelys Vasquez placed fourth at the Camden County meet in the discus and other experienced throwers are juniors An Nguyen and Eve Rosado and sophomores Paula Sawan, Gia Lamina, Leah Marccelli and Selina Lee.
OUTLOOK: The Cougars had top 10 finishes in the county and sectional meets last year and hope to stay there, and Drayton will look to end her career with a flourish.


CHERRY HILL WEST LIONS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: A solid core is in place for Cherry Hill West, including a promising crop of throwers. Junior Madiana Mansaray placed eighth at sectionals in the shot put following a 13th-place effort at the Camden County meet. Junior Armani Kitchens was impressive in the shot, javelin and discus at the county meet, and junior Sophia Zuniga is experienced in the javelin and discus. On the track, sophomore Kyra Randolph flashed potential in both hurdles events as a rookie. Seniors Mirasha Williamson and Elizabeth Santana are experienced runners in the 400 and 800 and junior Cameron Wright competes in the distance races. Senior Neylan Neal and junior Madeline Harrison lead the way in the long jump and senior Mary Solomon placed ninth at the county meet in the triple jump. Notable freshmen include Megan Faucett, a top distance runner in cross country and winter track, and Amiya Gibson Gardner, a standout sprinter during indoor season.
OUTLOOK: The Lions have key returners at several spots and hope to be competitive during batch meets.


CLEARVIEW PIONEERS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Hopes are high this spring for Clearview, which brings back a lot of young talent. That includes sophomore Katherine Byrne, who was the Tri-County Conference champion in the 3200 and took second in Gloucester County in the 1600 as a rookie. She went on to place ninth in the 1600 and 13th in the 3200 at sectionals and had a strong cross country season in the fall. Erin Snyder is another promising sophomore who was in the top five in the conference in the 200 and 400 and also shines in the 100. Zekira Francis is a senior leader who is a standout in several events, including the sprints, hurdles, high jump and shot put. She placed third in the county and fourth in the conference in the 100 hurdles. Junior Hailey Tabar excels in the 400 hurdles and 800 and junior Jordyn White is a key returner who claimed second in the county in the triple jump and third in the long jump, in addition to competing in both hurdles events. Junior Kayla Cejkovsky runs the 400 and sophomore Ava Grelli is a top distance runner. Senior Brianna Groch contributes in the hurdles, triple jump and javelin and senior Gabrielle BeskeSomers is an experienced thrower.
OUTLOOK: The Pioneers have the potential to make some noise at the county, conference and sectional meets this season and it would not be surprising to see several individuals qualify for states.


EASTERN VIKINGS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Eastern is loaded with talented returners, including three who ended last outdoor season at the Meet of Champions (MOC). Junior Jewel Ash followed up her impressive rookie season by capturing her first state championship as a sophomore, winning gold in the 400 hurdles. She also took second at states in the 100 hurdles, competed in both events at the MOC and finished fifth in the 400 hurdles. That came after she won sectional crowns in both races and took second in the 400. Senior Dariyah Corbett-Collier is another outstanding hurdler who finished in the top six at states and ran both races at the MOC. Jailya Ash had a memorable rookie season as she took fourth at sectionals, fifth at states and sixth at the MOC in the 100. Other returners who competed at states are senior Olivia Covington (triple jump) and juniors Smantha Tighe (3200) and Noelle Scott (100 hurdles). Senior Sydney Woolston is a strong 800 runner and other returners in the middle distance events are senior Petra Arinze and sophomore Ariana Tait. Experienced distance runners are senior Kristailen Quinones, junior Kierstin Clemand sophomore Morgan Bromley. Sophomore Analiese Bulgin competes in the long jump, while senior Anna Friedman placed eighth at sectionals in the pole vault and junior Abigail Brocco is yet another veteran hurdler. Talented throwers include senior Julia Dodd and junior Judith Timmons in the discus, junior Alex McMillan in the javelin and senior Krysten Henley in the shot put. Newcomers expected to have an impact are freshman sprinter/hurdler Teghan Sydney and sophomore distance runner Kayla James.
OUTLOOK: The Vikings made their presence felt at all of the major meets in 2018, taking third in Camden County, fifth at sectionals and eighth at states. They could be in the mix for team titles this spring and several athletes will certainly bring home individual crowns as well.


GLOUCESTER CATHOLIC RAMS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Lauren Ridinger made quite an impact in her rookie season and it will be exciting to see how she follows it up this spring. The sophomore placed sixth in both the 200 and triple jump and eighth in the 400 at sectionals. She went on to compete in all three events at states, placing in the top 10 across the board. Senior Sierra Pieffer is another returner who had a strong sectional performance, as she took 12th in the shot put. Brianna Elliott and Dorca Aragon are key juniors who shine in the long jump and also run the 100. Junior Grace Stewart is another returning sprinter, while seniors Mia Simila and Lauren Young are top 800 runners and senior Alli Pantano is an experienced hurdler. Junior Gloria Egger contributes in the throwing events. OUTLOOK: The Rams hope to build on their eighth-place finish at the Camden County meet and Ridinger should be a factor at sectionals and states again.


HADDONFIELD BULLDAWGS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Haddonfield has a sensational cast of returners that includes the Colflesh twins, sophomores Lindsay and Allison, who burst onto the scene in a big way last year. Lindsay placed second in the 800 and third in the 400 hurdles at sectionals and went on to finish third in the 800 at states. Allison took second in the 1600 and 3200 at sectionals and ran both races at states, claiming fifth in the mile. Both sisters and sophomore Payton Weiner were also part of the 4x800 relay, which won a sectional title, took second at states and fourth at the Meet of Champions. Another top returner is junior Rachel Bonnet; her memorable sectional effort featured a second in the high jump, a sixth in the 100 and a ninth in the 200. She placed 11th in the high jump at states. Bonnet and senior Jenny Scott ran on the 4x100 relay, which set a school record to place fourth at states. Bonnet and Lindsay Colflesh also helped the 4x400 win a sectional crown and place sixth at states. Scott took second at sectionals and eighth at states in the pole vault, and junior Evelyn Skyrm also went to states, qualifying in the long jump. Weiner runs the 800 and 1600 and Robin Rosen is yet another returner in the terrific sophomore class. She shines in the pole vault and high jump. Olivia Stoner, also a sophomore, was injured last spring but appears to be in great shape and should be a factor in the middle distance/long spring events as well as the hurdles. Junior Lilly Sirover (distance) and sophomore Grace Donch (400) also return on the track and senior Alexia Chacon is an experienced hurdler. Junior Sophia Cucinotta and sophomore Frances Miller contribute in the long jump, and junior Gillian Rozenfeld leads a group of throwers that also includes seniors Maddi Bickel and Lucy Herdelin.
OUTLOOK: The Bulldawgs’ impressive 2018 season was highlighted by a sectional title and a sixth-place finish at states. They have the potential to be in contention again and an individual state champion or two could be on the roster.


KINGSWAY DRAGONS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Kingsway has solid returners up and down the lineup, including junior pole vaulter Alison Bobst, who placed fourth at the Gloucester County meet and fifth at sectionals as a sophomore and will look to compete at states. Senior Christine Ruggieri was the Tri-County Conference champion in the shot and placed in the top five in the shot and javelin at the county meet. The talented crop of throwers also includes junior Chloe Tran, who placed seventh at sectionals in the discus, and sophomore Julia Nocentino, who took second in the county in the javelin. Seniors Amaya Walls and Avyana Williams and juniors Tessa Sherman and Allison Cook add depth in the throwing events. Sophomore Skye Robinson took second in the conference in the 400 and top sprinters are seniors Autumn DeMary and Nadira Harris, junior Kennedy Torain and sophomore Elise Daniel. DeMary also excels in the hurdles and high jump, and other hurdlers are juniors Emily Pierontoni and Abigail Smith and sophomore Emma Turner. Seniors Lauren Krott and Holly Chambers and sophomores Ashlynne Burke and Sydney Watts lead the way in the distance races. Other key returners are junior Neena Hundley and sophomores Grace Vit and Jade Oshodi in the jumps and junior Emily Kipers in the pole vault.
OUTLOOK: The best showings for the Dragons last year were a second in the county and a 10th at sectionals. They always seem to hold their own against the best competition and this season should be no different.


LENAPE INDIANS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Senior Shelby Whetstone has already had a huge impact on the Lenape program and she still has one more season to add to her list of accom- plishments before moving on to Rutgers. Last year she placed second in the 400 and third in the 800 at states and went on to finish sixth in the 400 at the Meet of Champions. She was also the sectional champion in the 800 and took third in the 400. She was joined at the MOC last year by classmate Alexis McDonald, who qualified in the high jump. McDonald finished in the top five at sectionals in the high jump and long jump and competed in both events at states. Junior Margaret Boyer also made it to states thanks to a fourth in the shot put at sectionals. Other top returners include juniors Rebecca Thomas (400 and 800) and Olivia Cao (1600 and 3200) and sophomore Anyae Kinder (100, 200 and 100 high hurdles). Senior Hayley Conway specializes in the 800 and 1600.
OUTLOOK: The Indians followed up their sectional title from 2017 with a sixth-place finish last year and went on to take 17th at states. This is shaping up as another successful season and it will be fun to watch Whetstone aim for another state championship to go with the one she claimed as a sophomore.


MOORESTOWN QUAKERS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Most teams are lucky to have one standout in the pole vault, but Moorestown actually has two: juniors Stephanie Maines and Payton Silar. Maines placed second at sectionals, just two spots ahead of Silar. They switched places at states, with Silar leading the way in ninth and Maines taking 11th. Leah Kellerman is another junior pole vaulter who gives the Quakers great depth in the event. They also are stacked in the distance events, led by sophomore Kate Inglis. She placed in the top 10 in the 1600 and 3200 at sectionals and ran the two-mile at states. Seniors Anjali Akula and Katie Goettle, junior Kylie Evory and sophomores Maggie Goettle and Anu Bezwada also run the distance races. Senior Julia Pierson, juniors Elizabeth McGee and Alex Magda and sophomore Cara Petrycki return in the sprints. Senior Jillian Calhoun is experienced in the hurdles and junior Payton Jagodzinski contributes in the jumps. Juniors Katherine Burt and Hannah Weinstein and sophomore Isabella Bernstein are returning throwers. OUTLOOK: The Quakers usually find themselves in the top 10 at sectionals—they were 10th last year—and they expect to be competitive again this spring.


PAUL VI EAGLES
ATHLETES TO WATCH: A loaded roster is back for Paul VI, which will enter the season with great expectations. Junior Aliya Rae Garozzo captured sectional and state championships in the 400 hurdles and went on to take third at the Meet of Champions (MOC). She also took fifth in the state in the 100 hurdles and competed in that race at the MOC. Senior sprinters Aaliyah Vandergrift and Keyann’a Watkins placed seventh and eighth, respectively, in the 100 at the MOC. Vandergrift placed second in the event at both sectionals and states and also placed in the top 10 at states in the 200 and pole vault. Watkins finished in the top five at states in both the 100 and 200. Carly Schmidt is another versatile senior who placed in the top 10 at states in both hurdles events and the pole vault and ran the 400 hurdles at the MOC. Junior Kambi Walker was the sectional champion in the high jump, took third at states and advanced to the MOC. Junior Bridget Lyons and sophomore Katie Sparks are standout distance runners who placed in the top five at states in the two-mile, while senior Elizabeth Lafferty and junior Nadine Assi finished in the top 10 in the shot put and junior Maura McGowan competed in the javelin. Other key returners on the track are sprinters Loren Simms and Blair Daniel, both juniors, and sophomore Abigail Lutz; seniors Julia Bruno and Miranda Zevallos in the 800; and senior Amelia Smith and junior Maria Liberatore in distance. Senior Laura Carter and juniors Jill Benberry, Nhenna Ubah and Jayla Banks are experienced throwers.
OUTLOOK: Last year was one to remember for the Eagles, who won a Camden County title, placed second at sectionals and third at states. They should be in contention for sectional and state championships with a fantastic nucleus in place.


SENECA GOLDEN EAGLES
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Seneca graduated four state qualifiers, so new team leaders will have to emerge from a solid crop of returners. One state qualifier is back in the fold—junior Aubrey Packard, who placed third at sectionals in the javelin to earn her spot. Senior Bethany Cosper excels in the javelin and other experienced throwers are junior Kelsey Carter and senior Jessica Rankel. Juniors Karra Wozniak, Nicole Wheeler and Ainsley Jodlbauer are promising sprinters, while sophomore Cassidy Strittmatter competes in the 400 and long jump and Wozniak also contributes in the long jump.

Senior Reilly Ritter is an experienced hurdler who took 14th at sectionals in the 400 hurdles.
OUTLOOK: After tying for third at sectionals and 13th at states last year, the Golden Eagles hope to make their presence felt at those meets again in 2019.


SHAWNEE RENEGADES
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Shawnee brings back a pair of sectional champions in the distance events: juniors Bella Turner and Claire Hauser. Turner took first at sectionals in the 3200, an event she also won at the Burlington County Open. She also placed second in the 1600 at sectionals and finished in the top five in both races at states before taking eighth in the two-mile at the Meet of Champions. Hauser claimed her sectional title in the 1600 and took 10th at states; she also finished third in the 3200 at sectionals. A third sectional champion back on the roster is junior Adrianna Alessi, who took first in the discus and finished eighth in the event at states. Senior Grace Kearns made it to states in the 800 thanks to a third-place finish at sectionals. Junior Kelly Owens is a top sprinter and senior Alyssa Curilla runs the 100. Senior Lauren Tenet, junior Emily Aldakimov and sophomore Brooke Tenet are returning hurdlers and experienced distance runners are senior Alexandra Strich, junior Maddy Yeager and sophomore Sophia Borrello.

Promising freshmen include Maddie Koveloski in the 800 and 1600, Ryann Sheehan in the 800, Hannah Longshaw in the sprints and Sally Giunta in the high jump and throws.
OUTLOOK: The Renegades had a strong showing at sectionals, placing fourth, and have the potential to contend again this year behind Turner, Hauser and Alessi.


WASHI NGTON TOWNSHIP MINUTEMAIDS
ATHLETES TO WATCH: Washington Township is paced by a pair of returning state qualifiers: senior thrower Izzy Deal and sophomore runner Maura Keane. Deal was the Gloucester County champion in the javelin, took fourth at sectionals and seventh at states before capping the year with a 15th-place effort at the Meet of Champions. She also took second in the county and seventh at sectionals in the shot put. Keane finished fifth in the 800 at sectionals to earn a berth at states, where she took 15th. Sophomore Ashton Wiseley also shines in the 800, placing 11th at sectionals. Seniors Lindsay Kuss, junior Grace Carey and sophomores Izabela Repousis and Gabrielle DeLuca are returning sprinters. Freshman Precious Barclift will also be joining the current sprinters in the upcoming season. Sophomore Jordan Farr and junior Emily Pancoast focus on the 800 and junior Kate Cochran leads the distance runners along with senior Hayley Hartnett. Senior Hannah Hartnett and sophomore Olivia Holmes are experienced hurdlers and Washington Township also welcomes freshman Gianna Garozzo to the spring team after a great first season of winter track. Sophomore Alyssa Baron took sixth in the county in the high jump last spring, and juniors Mia Commoroto, Alexa Wilson and Madison Seagreaves contribute in the throwing events.
OUTLOOK: Deal will be a threat to claim individual titles and the Minutemaids as a team can expect to remain competitive after taking fifth in the county and 12th at sectionals last year.
