Tony Varesio and the rest coaching staff of Newark Cougar track team are looking forward to a good season as the girls team is ranked second in sectional competition. Their ranking is genuine and was evident very early in their dual meet event with Moreau Catholic High School. Newark was dominant, very strong in distances races and relay competition as well.
The Lady Cougars set a good pace at the beginning of each race and ran away from Mariner pursuit although, even with a small team of mostly freshmen and sophomores, Moreau fought hard. Mariner Coach Enrique Henriquez has high hopes even with a relatively small, inexperienced team and says, "We the have the makings of good team in the future."
The Cougar men also have good speed and demonstrated dominance in the 100 yard dash and hurdles. Their longer distance runners were able to display finishing kicks that left the Mariners behind. Overall, it was a good day for the Cougars.
