The Morristown High School boys track team took first place in the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association Group 3 North sectionals meet on February 13 at the Bennett Center in Toms River.
Morristown scored 54 to best Irvington, which came in second with a score of 46.5, and 10 other rivals in the Group 3, North 2 section.
The Colonials’ third place finish in the 1,600-meter relay (3:42.44) just ahead of Irvington helped secure the championship. The members of that 4 X 400 relay team were seniors William Vasquez and Anthony Harrell and juniors Colin LaPenta and Andrew Aboagye.
Senior Nick Vena’s 69-00.74 throw in the shot put gave him first in that event and was a boost to Morristown’s final tally. He held the previous record of 67-06.5 last year. Paul Caravaglia, also a senior, threw for 46 feet and third place.
