J.P. Stevens High School

The trophy cases that line the hallway at J.P. Stevens High School are filled with multiple trophies that demonstrate how successful the Hawks have been in the athletic arena throughout their rich history. Another will be added following the girls cross-country team’s unexpected victory at the Greater Middlesex Conference (GMC) championships — the first time the Hawks have captured the title.

In addition to J.P. Stevens’ team crown, Metuchen High School’s Rachel Suss crossed the finish line in 18:49 to win the individual title. Suss’ first-place finish was one better than the second place she managed as a sophomore in 2013.

None of J.P. Stevens coach Dave Allen’s top-five racers finished in the top nine of the event, which was run at Thompson Park in Jamesburg. However, J.P. Stevens’ depth was a major factor in winning the championship, as each runner finished among the top 20. The 69 points garnered by the Hawks enabled them to out-distance the runner-up, Old Bridge High School, by four points. The other area team to place was Edison High School, which finished sixth in the standings and was paced by Renee Osma, who crossed the line in 20:30.9 and placed eighth.

Angelo Cao was the top finisher for J.P. Stevens in 10th in 20:53.11. Brillian Bao was next in 13th place with a time of 21:00, followed by Ashleigh Anderson (16th) in 21:06, Megan Gregory (17th) in 21:06 and Violet Kimble (18th) in 21:07.

East Brunswick won an impressive victory against J.P Stevens in front of a rowdy home crowd consisting of a ‘Pink’ bear den. The night didn’t start well with J.P. Stevens getting a quick 6 point lead, but the Bears came back and Sean O’Sullivan caught a 30 pass from Kevin Hemmings to tie the game at 6. East Brunswick’s defense was very stingy and in the second quarter sacked the quarterback and caused a fumble which the Bears recovered on the 3 yard line and Al Fitzpatrick ran it in and Alex Boyko made the kick. J.P. Stevens answer with a touchdown of their own but East Brunswick blocked the extra point allowing the East Brunswick to take a 13-12 lead into the half. The cheerleaders and band put on a really great half time show. The second half started strong for East Brunswick with the Bears scoring a touchdown quickly on a 70 yard run by Keith Hemmings followed by a surprise off-side kick which East Brunswick recovered. The Bears then added to their lead with a field goal to make the score 23-12. Unfortunately, J.P. Stevens drove right down the field to cut the lead to 4 points. Both teams struggled for the rest of the third quarter but after we got an interception, we were then able to drive down for a touchdown with an extra point. J.P. Stevens scored once more to make the game close and looked to be threatening with 2 minutes left, but after the Bears got an interceptions they were then able to just kneel to end the game.
