The Delbarton Track and Field team has won back-to-back Morris County Championships!  After winning its first county title in School history last season, the boys successfully defended their title, adding a second Morris County championship!
After day one on the two-day event, the team had the lead, but had to defend its position for the rest of day two.  The Green Wave never lost the lead, but relied on incredible performances to secure the victory.  

On day one, Delbarton took an early lead, earning 46 points.  Junior Collin Boler '23 started the scoring with his decisive victory in the 1600m in 4:14.48 (10 team points).  This was Boler's first outdoor county title after an incredible indoor season in which he won two county titles.  Soon after, senior Jeff Cianfrocca '22 defended his string of titles in the high jump with a leap of 6'4 (10 points).  In between high jumps, Jeff ran to the discus and threw a personal record 132'3 to secure fourth place (4 points).  Over at the discus, junior Nigel McSween '23 threw a monster personal best by over 10 feet to win the discus event and his first Morris County title.  His winning throw was 151'7 (10 points)!

To conclude the scoring after day one, Cianfrocca competed in his third event of the day, the triple jump, once again scoring big points for the Green Wave.  He jumped a personal best 44'6.5 in a back-and-forth final and finished in second place (8 points).  Junior Eoin Quinn '23 was also in the final and moved from 6th to 4th with a series of successful jumps to move up the leader board.  His best score was 42'11.5 (4 points).  

Day two saw Delbarton add 37 additional points to its score, giving the team 83 total team points.  Collin Boler once again led the scoring on the day in the 800m, winning his second county title in a new meet record 1:53.00 (10 points).  In the 3200m, Collin Boler won his third county title of the week, potentially completing the first ever "distance sweep" winning in 9:25.37 (10 points).  Brother Brian Boler '23 was third in 9:29.96 (6 points).  

In the shot put, senior Chuck Nnaeto '22 placed 5th with a throw of 47'9.5 (2 points).  McSween followed in 6th place with a 46'10.75 (1 point).  To complete the scoring, Cianfrocca had only one eligible event remaining for the meet and took full advantage.  In the long jump event, Jeff was seeded 17th overall in the county with a previous best of 19'4.5.  He qualified for the finals with seven other athletes, with the third-best jump of 21'2.5.  In the final, several athletes improved their position and Jeff responded on his final jump with a new 2.5 foot personal best 21'10.5 to secure 2nd place by mere inches (8 points).  

Says head coach Andrew Sherwood, "The Delbarton Track and Field team is a young squad. Lots of other athletes had the chance to compete on the big stage and were there to support the team.  Last year, the team won with 74 team points and this year with 83 points.  We are incredibly proud of our young men!"

Next up, Delbarton heads to the Montville dual on Monday, May 23 to complete the NJAC United Division competition.  The team is currently 3-0 in the division. On Tuesday, May 24 a few athletes will be competing at the East Coast Relays at Randolph for one last chance at school relay records and national qualifying standards.  The Non-Public A State Sectional and Group meets are combined on June 10 and 11.
