The South Brunswick High School boys track team will be taking the momentum it built in the Greater Middlesex Conference Relays to the GMC individual championships this Saturday.
"We won the (GMC Relay) meet," South Brunswick Coach Wilfredo Rivera noted of the meet contested last week. "We scored in all 16 events. The kids really competed well."
South Brunswick's abilty to score in so many different events in the relays is certainly a good sign for how well the team will do on Saturday. So is the fact South Brunswick has so much depth on the team.
"We used thirty different guys to get the job done, which is a testament to our depth and abilities," Rivera said.
In the relays, South Brunswick won three events -- the sprint medley, the high jump and the long jump.
Tre Tisdale, Emmanuel Agyen, Hassan Funchess and Matt Tamasi won the sprint medley in a time of 3:40.17.
Christian Larbie, Jaleel Alston and Kassem Davis won the high jump with a combined height of 17' 10".
Jonathan Pitt, Jaleel Alston and Darrell Harper won the long jump with a combined distance of 64' 2 3/4".
Pitt, Alston and Larbie combined to place second in the triple jump (129'). Harper and Alston joined with Kevin Wainczak to place third in the pole vault (30' 6").
Adam Dickert, Victor Battagliotti and Erich Kaiser were second in the discus with a distance of 378' 4".
Dickert, Battagliotti and Kyle Tortorelli were third in the javelin (397'). Dickert, Battagliotti and Tortorelli were fourth in the shot (137' 1").
Tre Tisdale, Matt Tamasi, Jose Baxter and Kaseem Davis were second in the 4x400 in a time of 3:23.88.
South Brunswick managed a third and a fifth in the hurdles. Jose Baxter, Juan Baxter and Kaseem Davis were third in the 3x400 hurdles (2:59.02). Baxter, Baxter, Jon Pitt and Alex Kainer were fifth in the shuttle hurdles (1:06.73).

South Brunswick came away with a fourth and a sixth in the sprint events. The 4x100 team of Rich Duverger, Scott Cannon, Isnard Mir-Merced and Darrell Harper were fourth (44.09). The 4x200 team of Jose Baxter, Mir-Merced, Duverger and Kaseem Davis were sixth (1:31.99).
The 4x800 team of Chris Barrood, Aaron Laserna, Hiten Doshi and Mo Ziab was fourth (8:26.56).
South Brunswick also placed two teams in the novice sprint medley. Stephen Owirodu, Christian Garrido, Rohit Nalmada and Hiten Gowda were second (3:55.10). Chris Lim, Elijah Suggs, Juwan Brown and Bryan Colhoun were third (3:56.42).
"I'm proud of the guys," Rivera said. "They were determined and executed the game plan."
Now, South Brunswick will see what it can do about Saturday's game plan.
