THE RECORD

There’s an old saying that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That’s very true of the Ridgewood squad that was The Record Boys Indoor Track Team of the Year.

No individual Ridgewood athletes made All-North Jersey First Team or Second Team and nobody was selected All-Bergen First Team.

Yet the Maroons were the best team in North Jersey, with an overwhelming victory at the Big North Freedom meet and a seven-point win in the Bergen County Relays large school division. And despite losing by seven to West Orange in the Group 4 sectionals, the Maroons were still worthy of the honor.

“When some of our better athletes didn’t perform up to expectations, others stepped up,” Ridgewood coach Josh Saladino said. “Maybe our best performances came after a bad meet as our kids rebounded from meet to meet.”
