:52.3 and for Nathan it was :49 even. We probably need to cut .5 each off to reach our goal of 3: 20 flat.”
The foursome finished the event with a combined time of 3: 22. *. Williams ran the first leg in :49.5, Coles ran the second in :50.4, Cary ran the third in :51.6 and Jones anchored in :49.6 (* individual splits do not always coincide with the total time in a relay).
“There were so many good relay teams there. We were just happy to be there,” commented coach Klimas. “There is a lot of strategy in the event and the runners from Elizabeth and Roselle pinched Nathan in on the anchor leg and he could not get to the outside. But we were indeed with good company.”
Williams, a sophomore, did place seventh in the 400meter event with a time of :49.31.
“That was my best time so far. I was feeling strong on the last straightaway,” commented Williams. “I started accelerating faster than I usually do.”
As to his postseason thoughts, Williams grinned and thoughtfully answered, “I’m considering running cross country but I am going to play football in the fall, so I’m definitely going to football camp. I have already started training in the weight room.”
Governor Livingston sophomore Dana McCurdy finished fourth in her heat in the 100hurdles with a recorded time of 14.87, putting her in 10th, and also placed 10th in the 400hurdles at 1: 05 flat. Both times were Highlander school records.
“Last year I qualified for both events. But it feels great to be here,” said McCurdy. “I’ve moved up in the rankings and I am not as nervous as I was last year.”
A smiling Head Coach Bill Gorski pointed out, “They were both school records. She actually broke her own record in the 400hurdles and the 100hurdle record was set by Dineasha Potter in 1996.”
Potter, who now attends Rutgers University, was on hand for the event.
Records are made to be broken and the MOC saw one broken in the girls javelin where Amy Krilla of Red Bank Catholic hurled the large dart 159’8” to top the previous MOC mark of 152’7” set by Emma Painter of Clayton in 1980. Another record, established by Eric TaylorPerry of Montclair in 1990, was tied by Paul
Klemec of Mainland when he cleared 7’2” to win the boys high jump event.

MANZI OUTFOXES BARTEL AND RUSSELL ROAD MEN
Mattress Fac. Hunters Track Down Russell Road Men, 20
By DAVID B. CORBIN
Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times
Two superb pitching performances highlighted the Fanwood Old Men’s Softball Association (FOMSA) game between Russell Road and Hunter/ Mattress Factory men on June 9 at LaGrande Park in Fanwood. One, a flamethrower with a wicked changeup
represented the Road men, and the other, a wily old veteran who
could wisely read the opposing batters represented the Factory men. This time the victory went to the wily old veteran – Al Manzi – who scattered seven hits – all singles – and struck out only one but also allowed only one baseonballs. The Russell pitcher, Todd Bartel allowed six hits – three in the seventh inning
—, walked three and struck out four. A tworun breakout in the top of the seventh inning gave the Mattress Factory Hunters a 20 conquest.
Ironically, the sixtime def e n d i n g F O M S A c h a m p s (Russell Road) was comprised primarily of players from the former Mattress Factory team, that was the threetime defending champs of the presently defunct Westfield Men’s Softball League (WMSL). With some WMSL players on the Mattress Factory Hunter
team, the scenario was ripe for an interesting evening.
The Road blazer retired all three batters in the top of the first, then the veteran, after yielding a single to Kevin Zippler, was the recipient of a short (Chris Klukus) to second (Frank Coccaro) to first (Ron Shovlin) double play. Then, a ground out to third ended the inning.
K l u k u s “kracked” a leadoff single in the
third and the MF Hunters were lurking. But a diving grab of a grounder, which resulted in an out at first, by second baseman Tim Walsh, prevented any scoring success.
Once again Manzi dodged the bullet, this time in the lower half of the third. Rob Rowland rapped a leadoff single but a secondtoshorttofirst double play cleared the bases. Then, Road man Tim Walsh lined a single to left which would have scored a runner on second.
Hunter Kyle Bilcher chopped a lonely single in the fourth inning, then in the bottom of the inning, Bilcher made a great running catch in right field. Hunter Phil Wein singled in the fifth and Road man Chris Masterson also singled, otherwise, the inning was sleepy.
Eyes were opened in the sixth, however, when Road man Rowland made a shoelace catch in right. In the Road half of the inning, Tim Walsh hopped his second single of the evening but home plate remained clean.
Mike Ewing spun a looping leadoff single over short in the seventh, then Coccaro hooked a spinning single down the right field line which eluded the fielder. With that, the Factory Hunters had finally found home when Ewing trampled it. Next, Steve Kamins drilled an RBI single to center for the 20 edge.
A line out to third, followed by a highly exaggerated overshift on Russell “Thunder Banger” Scott Johnson resulted in a free pass to Johnson. Then a ground out to third and a popup to short gave the Mattress Factory Hunters the victory.
