2014 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,300 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

TRS Alumni Hosted Indoor Meets


Its that time of year again…..  We are hosting two meets this year at the Toms River indoor track to generate money for the The Mark O’Leary and Ed Heffernan Scholarship which is committed to helping student athletes at Toms River High School South pursue further education.  This scholarship was created after the retirement of O’Leary and Heffernan from coaching at Toms River High School South between 1973 and 2008 (more information can be found at the ‘Scholarship’ tab on the top of the homepage).

Your support is the reason we are able to run these meets each year and make enough money to give a significant scholarship to a TRS boy and girl track and field athlete.

We need help for the following dates at the bubble:

Thursday, January 8th

Thursday, January 22nd

Both meets start at 4:30pm.

Please let us know ASAP if you can make it and forward this to anyone that may be interested to do some volunteer work for a good cause.

Jon Dickinson ('01), O'Leary, Michael Perlberg ('01), Paul Applegate ('03), Scott Cullen ('01), Bobby Cannon ('01), Pat Clancy ('03), Heff at the NYC Armory

TRS Girls Winter Track Preview


Vuocolo 35th at XC Meet of Champs, Smith signs with Elon University

Winter track practice starts Monday, and the Lady Indians are looking forward to another successful track and field campaign.  It was an excellent fall for the girls cross country program, led by junior Alexsus Vuocolo and senior Chelsea Smith.  Vuocolo put in an excellent summer of work, including a solid with of training up in the Poconos at “XCamp Runs Wild” with teams Smith and sophomore Shannon Kearney.  Highlights for Lexi included: 7th at the Ocean County Championships (#2 all-time at OCP), 4th at the South Jersey Group 3 (#2 all-time at Delsea), 12th at the Group 3 (school record), and 35th at the NJSIAA Meet of Champions (school record, #2 runner from Ocean County, #8 runner in shore).  Looking forward, Lexi is excited for the upcoming track seasons where she’ll look to become the 3rd South runner in as many years to break the 5 minute mile mark.

Chelsea Smith built on her stellar spring track season by having the best cross country season of her career, while taking on the busy task of choosing her home for the next 4 years.  In the end, Chelsea decided to continue her track career at Elon University (North Carolina). Some of Chelsea’s highlights from the season include: 9th at Ocean County Championships, 25th at the Shore Conference (4th all-time at OCP), and 11th at South Jersey Group 3 just missing a bid to the group meet.  Another Indian made a name for herself this fall as freshman Kerri Kroon earned the title at the Ocean County Freshman Championship.

South returns an excellent young group this winter and should have strong showings at both the Ocean County and South Jersey Group 3 Championships.  In addition to Vuocolo and Smith in the distance races, South will look for big things from: Destiny Kearney, Alyssa Wamsley, Madison Meise, Lauren Baranyay, Delaney Huber, Shannon Sorrentino, and Nina Kenney.  The winter schedule for the girls is as follows; we hope to see you out at some meets:
