Pre lives!
**Big UP and congratulations to Donavan Hackley, First Team All-State Group 2 by the Star Ledger! D finishes his Rockets XC career #5 ALL TIME for the Rockets.  He was our first Meet of Champions qualifier since Matt Dahl in 2004!  It was a great ending to a special career.
**For the first time since 2006, Raritan will be represented at the Group 2 State Championship race at Holmdel Park on Nov. 12!! Big UP to Donavan Hackley for placing 4th and Lou DiLaurenzio for placing 6th at the Central Jersey Group 2 Sectional Championship race at Thompson Park.  The whole squad ran a great race and repped #guts like tough runners they are!
**For the first time since 1986, we are Shore Conference Divisional Champions!!  At 5-1, we are sharing the A-Central Championship with Red Bank Regional and Holmdel...coincidentally, 30 years ago saw a tri-championship in B-North for the Rockets.
 A-Central Champs!!
**Big UPs and congratulations to Captain Donavan Hackley for placing 5th in the Open Race at the prestigious Shore Coaches Invitational.  D's time of 17:09 improves his status in the Top 20 from #19 to #7. 
*Summer GOALS: 400 miles this summer, 10 pull-ups by the end.  Simple, clean, healthy living is a lifestyle choice, NOT a sacrifice...
