Girls’ Track & Field Team

“The Girls’ Track & Field Team was capably and enthusiastically led by our captains, Emma Hsu ‘25, Sydney Mallow ‘25, Razil Fernandes ‘24, and Uma Rajan ‘24. These athletes were  the backbone of the girls’ program, setting the example for the younger athletes.  Highlights from the season included the team’s outstanding performance at the League Championships (at which they earned 2nd place); the Bergen County Championships (at which Razil Fernandes ‘24 won 1st place in 3200m and 2nd place in the 1600m, and Uma Rajan ‘24 won 1st in the 800m); and the State Sophomore Championships (at which Grace Dalgetty ‘26 won 1st (HJ) and 5th (TJ), and Maya Rosenberg ‘26 won 5th (1600m)).  During the season, the triple threat of Emma Hsu ‘25, Uma Rajan ‘24, and Sydney Mallow ‘25 achieved an incredible 94’3” in their Triple Jump Relay, beating D-E records. The following athletes were also invited to compete in the Bergen Meet of Champions: Uma Rajan ‘24 – 400m; Razil Fernandes ‘24 – 3200m; Emma Hsu ‘25 – LJ and TJ. 

At the State Meet of Champions in mid-June, arguably the most trying contest of them all, Grace Dalgetty ‘26 finished 14th overall with her best jump of the season (tying her previous school record), at 5’ 2. She had an amazing second attempt at 5’ 4 and just clipped the bar with her foot! And Emma Hsu ‘25 finished 20th overall with her best long jump at 16’ 8. Though it was short of her previous best (17’5.75) she competed at the highest level. Her first jump was a foul by 2 inches (pretty much her toe) over the line. If this jump would have counted, no doubt she would have broken her own school record and could’ve medaled! Definitely over 18 feet! I know with this experience, this time next year, I will be updating you all with “THEY MEDALED!” 

Finally, congratulations to the following, who received All-League recognition: Uma Rajan ‘24, Emma Hsu ‘25,  Razil Fernandes ‘24, Sydney Mallow ‘25, Grace Dalgetty ‘26, Maya Rosenberg ‘26, and Adesola Afonja ‘27. Way to go to all our Girls’ Track & Field athletes!”
