Mike Andre

School: Ocean

Year: Senior

Event: Sprints

Highlights: Already one of the top srinters in New Jersey, Andre put together another standout season to reaffirm his position as one of the state’s best. The Georgetown recruit capped his high school career by placing three times at the NJSIAA Meet of Champions, finishing second in the 100 (10.74), third in the 200 (21.72) and seventh in the 400 (49.03). Andre remained consistent throughout championship season, finishing second in the 100 (11.23), third in the 200 (22.04) and second in the 400 (48.86). Before winning the Central Jersey Group III 200 and 400 in 21.82 and 47.88, respectively, Andre won the Shore Conference 100 (10.97), Monmouth County 100 (11.15) and Monmouth County 200 (22.27).

Ishmael Hyman

School: St. John Vianney

Year: Junior

Event: Sprints

Highlights: A budding sprinter and a Division I football recruit, Hyman had a breakout outdoor season for St. John Vianney, capped off by fifth-place finish in the 200 at the MOC (22.04). The Non-Public A runner-up in the 200 (22.15), Hyman was a double-medal winner at Non-Public South, running a personal-best 21.95 to win the 200 and 49.98 to finish third in the 400. Hyman got his outdoor season going in a big way by winning the Shore Conference 200 in 22.05.

Theo Foster

School: CBA

Year: Junior

Event: Sprints

Highlights: Long a distance running juggernaut, Foster represents the depth CBA has gained over the last few years and it was that depth that helped CBA dominate in 2012. Foster anchored the Colts’ winning 4×400 relay at Non-Public A that clinched the program’s first state title since 2004. In that same meet, Foster, a 400-meter specialist, won that event in 49.31 and took third in the 200 in a personal best 22.18. The 48.37 he ran at the MOC was good for fourth. In his speciality, Foster picked up wins at Monmouth County (personal best 48.07), Shore Conference (49.19) and Non-Public South A (49.05). At the sectional level, Foster also finished second in the 200 in 22.35.

Rob Napolitano

School: Red Bank Catholic

Year: Junior

Event: Distance

Highlights: Napolitano turned it on late in the season as his times dropped significantly, leaving him as one to keep an eye on for next year. His personal best 4:12.10 for 1,600 meters got him sixth against a loaded field at the MOC. That effort came a week after he finished third in the Non-Public A 800 (1:53.60) and sixth in the 1,600 (4:16.90). At Non-Public South A, Napolitano won the 800 (1:56.64) and took second in the 1,600 (4:22.58) after finishing third in both the 1,600 (4:18.43) and 3.200 (personal best 9:36.51) at Monmouth County.

Chris Marco

School: Toms River South

Year: Junior

Event: Distance

Highlights: Marco showed flashes of potential during his sophomore season and most of his junior season before putting it all together with a race for the ages at the MOC, where he ran a personal best 4:07.31 to win the 1,600. The Asbury Park Press Athlete of the Year went 7-2 in championship races this spring. That remarkable run began at Ocean County when he tripled, winning the 800 (personal best 1:52.33), 1,600 (4:23.34) and 3,200 (personal best 9:25.58). The county triple was followed by winning the Shore Conference 1,600 (4:14.0) and an SJ III double in 1:53.48 and 4:12.80. At Group III, Marco was the runner-up in the 800 (1:53.29) and 1,600 (4:12.80) before opting to concentrate on the 1,600 for the MOC.

Jack Boyle

School: CBA

Year: Junior

Event: Distance

Highlights: Like Marco, Boyle’s very best effort of the spring came in the season’s most important meet when the junior dropped a massive personal best of 9:08.28 to register a surprise win in the MOC 3,200 as the No. 11 seed. That win was CBA’s first MOC 3,200 victory since Colts all-timer John Coyle won it in 1988. The rapid progression that led to the unlikely win was startling as Boyle 9:40.88 to finish third in Non-Public South and 9:19.60 to finish sixth at Non-Public A. At Shore Conference, Boyle finished sixth in the 1,600, running a personal best 4:21.39.

Eric Kahana

School: Freehold

Year: Senior

Event: Hurdles

Highlights: A multiple-event threat to score in championship meets, Kahana’s best efforts were in his signature event, the 110 hurdles. In that event, he picked up wins at Monmouth County (14.36) and Shore Conference (personal best 14.17), while also winning the Central Jersey Group III crown in 14.33. Also an accomplished sprinter, Kahana finished third in the Monmouth County 100 (11.38), second in the Shore Conference 100 (personal best (10.97) and third in the CJ III 200 (personal best 22.12).

Jason Dijols

School: Manalapan

Year: Senior

Event: Hurdles

Highlights: Proficient in both hurdles events, Dijols put together a consistent season to cap his high school career. A personal best 54.36 in the 400 hurdles got him a Monmouth County title, while the 14.64 he ran in the 110 hurdles got him second. At Shore Conference, Dijols finished second in both events in 14.60 and 55.67, respectively. At CJ IV, Dijols advanced by running 14.71 and 55.92 to finish fourth in both events. He ran 14.86 to finish fifth at Group IV before running a personal best 14.31 to finish fourth at the MOC.

Matt Rodio (Sr.), Kevin Olsen (Sr.), Zack McDermott (Jr.), Theo Foster (Jr.)

School: CBA

Event: Relay

Highlights: No 4×400 this quartet ran was bigger than the meet-record, Foster-anchored 3:18.35 they ran to clinch the Non-Public A title, 112-104. The state team was the first for the Lincroft school in nearly a decade. The important win at Non-Public A came after wins at Non-Public South A (3:27.43) and Monmouth County (3:19.68). In between, the Colts finished fourth at Shore Conference (3:26.99)

Faysal Forbes

School: Jackson Memorial

Year: Junior

Event: Jumps

Highlights: Forbes had himself a breakout season for a Jaguars program that always seems to churn out a new crop of strong scorers once another one graduates. A personal-best leap of 22-9.75 won Forbes the Ocean County long jump, while a personal best 42-3.5 got him fourth in the triple jump. After skipping Shore Conference, Forbes went 21-9.75 for fourth at CJ IV.

Ryan North

School: Southern

Year: Senior

Event: Jumps

Highlights: A triple jump specialist, North was capable of scoring in big there or the long jump and that is exactly what he did all spring. Concentrating on his specialty, North went 46-6.75 for sixth at the MOC after a leap of 46-.75 got him third at Group IV. At SJ IV, North picked up a pair of sixth-place finishes to advance, jumping 21-7 and 44-.75, respectively. Locally, a 44-.25 won the Ocean County title, with a 21-8.5 being good enough for second. At Shore Conference, North picked up a weekend double, 21-6 and 44-8.25, respectively, for the two wins.

Justin Love

School: Matawan

Year: Junior

Event: Sprints

Highlights: Another breakout star on the All-Shore team, Love made a living as an elite high jumper this spring. Love cleared 6-6 three times, resulting in wins at Monmouth County, Shore Conference and a sixth-place finish at the MOC. Sprinkled in were a 6-2 for fifth at Group II and a 6-4 for third at CJ II. Also an improving triple jumper, Love won at Monmouth County (45-.5), finished third at Shore Conference (43-5.75), won CJ II (44-6.25) and finished second at Group II (44-11.25).

Skylar Johnson

School: Point Boro

Year: Senior

Event: Pole vault

Highlights: Long a strong contender statewide in the boys pole vault, Ocean County’s best vaulter was from a school not typically known for the event. Johnson continued to improve as the meets became more important, culminating in a 14-6 to finish second at the MOC. That was after a 14-0 for second at Group II and a 13-0 got him the win in SJ II. Locally, Johnson cleared 13-6 to take third at Shore Conference and second at Ocean County. His season best came when he cleared 15-0 at the Ocean County Relays.

Mark Stafurik

School: CBA

Year: Senior

Event: Throws

Highlights: Stafurik got his championship season going by throwing 50-5.25 to win the Monmouth County shot, while also tossing the discus 129-4 to finish fourth. Stafurik won the Shore Conference shot put (49-3.5) before taking second in the discus (138-2) and third in the shot put (48-11.5) at Non-Public South A. In picking up key team points at Non-Public A, Stafurik finished third in the discus (personal best 141-6).

Gilligan Greenlow

School: Toms River East

Year: Sophomore

Event: Throws

Highlights: Still young and learning the discus, Greenlow came into his own this spring, especially early when he won titles at Ocean County (personal best 155-11) and Shore Conference (143-0). At the state level, Greenlow finished fourth at SJ IV (145-1) before ending his season with a 13th-place finish at Group IV (135-9).

James Pancetti

School: St. John Vianney

Year: Senior

Event: Throws

Highlights: A javelin specialist, Pancetti had several monster throws down the stretch to highlight a big season. Pancetti opened his season by throwing 188-9 to win Shore Conference, while a personal best 195-9 was good for the win at Non-Public A. In between, he threw 175-4 to take second at Non-Public South A.
