Bergen Indoor Relays Is Marathon for Athletes

Article excerpt

The Bergen Indoor Relays might be the most difficult meet of the year for versatile track and field athletes. Unlike the outdoor Jack Yockers Bergen County Relays, it's a one-day, four-hour meet, so there's no rest for the weary.

Seth Kricheff of NV/Old Tappan and Katherine Muccio of Ridgewood were worthy winners of the annual Alan Wedemeier and Lou Molino Awards, respectively as the top performers at the meet. Yet, there were many other nominated performers, all of whom would have been just as worthy winners.

Among the boys, junior Will Baginski of Ridgewood led his team to wins in the 4-x-1,600 and sprint medley, the latter in a stunning 1:55.3 800 split, and ran a 50.5 split on the Maroons runner-up 4-x-400 team.

Junior Stephen Shields of Bergen Tech had top five large school performances in the long (20-3) and triple (42-8) jumps.

Among the girls, Tiffany Bautista of Paramus Catholic had another spectacular meet, with the top long (17-9) and triple jump (37-8) of the meet. She also cleared 5 feet in the high jump and ran a leg on PC's North Jersey-leading 4-x-200 relay team.

Lauren Chamberlin of Ramsey is the defending champion in the Bergen County girls pentathlon, and she showed her versatility by going 5 feet in the high jump, throwing the shot 30-2, and running legs on Ramsey's winning 4-x-200 and shuttle hurdle teams. …
