RIDGEWOOD – In its first major test of the young season, the Ridgewood High School boys track and field team responded by taking home the Division A championship at last week’s Jack Yockers Bergen County Relays.

The Maroons matched the lofty expectations placed on them prior to the season by finishing in the top four in 15-of-16 events to score 112 out of a possible 160 points and edge second-place Old Tappan by 11 points for the title.

“What excited me about the team was that we rose to expectations,” said RHS head coach Josh Saladino. “We were the No. 1 team in North Jersey in The Record’s rankings going into it, so the pressure was on our guys and they responded.”

The victory marked the second straight year the Maroons won the meet.

“We were the defending champions, and the kids went into this meet with the expectation and the goal to defend their County Relays championship,” Saladino said. “The kids have been through it before. They knew what to expect.”
