Track and Field
The Track and Field team had another record-breaking season as the girls followed in the footsteps of years past and etched their names in Academy sport records history. Under returning Head Coach Kayla Stolarczuk and new Assistant Coach Ciara McGovern, the Track and Field Team focused on new strength and conditioning exercises to prepare for the season. This additional focus on strength and conditioning helps our athletes achieve new heights in their athletic careers.
Throughout the season, new school and personal records were met and exceeded. Early on in the season in a double meet against Boonton High School and Kinnelon High School, Caroline O'Callaghan '24 took first place in Discus, Emma Dietz '23 broke her personal record in the 400m Hurdles, and Sophia Vail '23 broke her personal record in Triple Jump. Soon after at the Randolph Relays, Emma Dietz, Caroline O'Callaghan, and Sophia Vail medaled in the 3x400m Hurdles, Maggie Flanagan '22, Caroline O'Callaghan, and Mia Foer placed 5th in Discus, and Maggie Flanagan brook an Academy record in Discus with a throw of 83.1 feet. Toward the end of the season, Kathleen Byrne '23, Allison Shannon '23, Mackenzie Schubert '22, and Whitney Teagan '25 broke an Academy record for 4x100m Relay with a time of 56.12 seconds.
