6th Annual TRS Alumni Track Party

Toms River Alumni Track Party

Saturday, July 26, 2014

5pm at the “OH” at Toms River South


7pm at Capones Restuarant (Jimmy Cs side)

The Toms River South Alumni Committee will be hosting its 6th annual alumni event at the “Mark O’Leary and Ed Heffernan Track Complex” to get together to relive the good old days, as well as raise money for the scholarship.

The general plan is to meet at 5pm at the track.  If there is enough interest and it is not too hot, there will be two events:  the 400 meter dash and the shot put.  We will then be moving the party over to Capones on Washington Street in Downtown Toms River for food and drinks at around 7pm.  The party will be on the right side of the restaurant which was once called Jimmy Cs.  All are welcome.

We will not be able to send out mailed invitations, so please pass the word to alumni that don’t use the computer.

We are also doing this to continue to contribute to the scholarship fund we set up a few years ago for a male and female Track and Field athlete who has the “passion and excitement for the sport and would like to continue pursuing the sport at the next level”.

Here is the Paypal link to donate:

We are a Verified Member of PayPal (https://www.paypal.com/us/verified/pal=cannon%40olearyheff%2eorg)

More information can be found at the “Scholarship” tab on the top of website.

We will also be having the 6th Annual Alumni Cross Country meet in September.  We will share that date when the XC schedule is set, so stay tuned for that event.

Please RSVP if you can make it.

This past Saturday, the lady Indians traveled to South Plainfield High School for the Group 3 State Championship.  South didn’t disappoint, competing well across the board.  On the track, Chelsea Smith put herself in the stacked 1600 meter race and held on for a 9th place finish in 4:57.72, the fastest time in Toms River South (and possibly Toms River School’s) history.  Chelsea’s splits were 71, 75, 76 and 74 for the race.  She followed that performance on Friday with a 6th place finish in the 800 meter run in 2:14.88.  That 800 marks the 4th weekend in a row that Chelsea has gone under the former school record of 2:16.1, set by Michele Kelty in 1981.  Armani Brown also had a banner day in the shot put, throwing a 2 and ½ foot personal best in the shot put of 37’9.5, good for 6th place and a berth into the Meet of Champions.  Armani’s worst throw of the day was 35’7, which was 3 inches further than her best ever, and showed she was ready for the breakthrough she had.  She also earned 13th in the discus with a 101’3, 1 inch off her personal best from counties.

Additionally, South received solid performances from Alexsus Vuocolo, who doubled in 5:07 (1600m) and 11:22 (3200) for 13th and 15th respectively.  Destiny Kearney ended what was the best season by a TR South sprinter ever with a 17th place mark in the 100m and a 14th place mark in the 200m.  Destiny personal bests for the season in the 100m (12.1 – school record), 200m (25.75 – #2), 100 hurdles (15.28, #2), and triple jump (35’4 – school record) prove that she will be a force in New Jersey next spring, her senior year.  Destiny will lead a well-rounded group next year, which hopes to continue the tradition of excellence that is Toms River South track and field.
