Owen Fogarty Meet of Champions 2018Kate Ashley and Owen Fogarty represented Verona High School’s track & field teams at the NJSIAA Meet of Champions in south Jersey on Saturday.

Ashley had earned her way to the championship 800m race for the second consecutive year by placing second at the NJSIAA Group 1 Championship on June 2. She ran a 2:18.52 yesterday, which put her in 14th place. But her time was nearly a full second faster than the personal best she had set in February at winter track’s Meet of Champions. Gov. Livingston High School’s Victoria Vanriele won the 800m with a time of 2:06.68.

Pole vaulter Fogarty repeated his personal best vault of 14 feet. He set that last week at the Group 1 Championship, and in so doing broke a VHS pole vault record that had stood for 44 years. The 14-foot vault on Saturday was good enough for 10th place.  Old Tappan High School’s Tyler Hrbek won the event with a vault of 15 feet.
