Christian Brothers Academy Track & Field extended two of its own records this past weekend.
The Colts won a New Jersey-best 10th straight state championship on Friday night in Toms River. CBA won the Non-Public A trophy by 27 points over second place Union Catholic.
The victory earned CBA its 25th state title, which is also a NJSIAA record for state championships.
Christian Brothers took the championship on the backs of incredible performances from the senior class.
Shaw Powell won two races, the 3200 and the 1600, and was the only athlete to finish first in two events for the meet. Troy Hill was on the heels of Powell in both the 1600 (2nd) and the 3200 (3rd).
Liam O'Hara was the winner of the 400 dash, finishing first in 49.95 seconds. Ethan Ferraiola finished third in that same event in 50.66 seconds.
Eros Bottino continued his dominance of the shot put event with a winning throw of 57-06.00.
"These seniors lead by example and show the younger guys exactly how to prepare, act and compete," head coach Karl Torchia said. "The seniors have put in years of hard work and it has paid off with a state title in every track and field season so far. Not only have they turned in incredible track and field performances, but they all have become such great leaders."
The Colts will now send select athletes to the NJSIAA Meet of Champions next weekend, followed by the New Balance Nationals on March 13th.
