CYAN YELLOW MAGENTA BLACK balance exists.

"We have 78 kids on the team. Hopefully, we will find some diamonds in the ruff. We will cultivate some runners and some throwers. Our field team should be pretty balanced."

Glittering nicely in the ruff, senior Julie Elmuccio will compete in the 200-meter, a hurdle event and the long jump. Senior Jessica Lutkenhouse has been shining in the half mile and the mile events.

"The main strength of our team is going to be the 200, the quarter and the half," pointed out Carpenter. "The half mile is Megan's (Shutts) specialty. She is a true veteran."

Junior Heather Dennis will add strength in the long jump, high jump and middle distance. "She went to Penn relays and got some running experience," said Carpenter. "She is an up and coming girl,"

As a result, the Blue Devils appear to have some strength in every event. "We have some girls who want to do a little bit of everything. I think that we will be more balanced than we have ever been," Carpenter pointed out.

"Our outlook is good. A lot of people thought that we lost so much and we did," expressed Carpenter. "The past four years we have been on a great run. We've had (Suzie) Kozub, (Sage) Stefiuk, Egan and Korfmacher but we have had plenty of girls right on their heels waiting to step up.

And, I think that they will meet the challenge."

Elizabeth and Plainfield appear to be the Blue Devils' stiffest competition for the Watchung Conference title this year and Cranford could pose a threat.

"Elizabeth always has a strong throwing team and Plainfield is strong in the sprints and the hurdles," said Carpenter. "Cranford will be tough in the distance events."

Carpenter concluded, "I would like to go undefeated in dual meets."

The Blue Devils' dual meet season opens in Cranford on Tuesday, April 6.

tive in the javelin. "During winter track, he actually cleared seven feet, but heeled out," claimed McGriff. "We are looking for him to top that this season. I think that we can get him to jump 7'2" this season."

Sophomores Mike Franzone and Darien Aberdeen will back up Woodward in the high jump. Junior Nathan Jones is a strong second in the long jump but Coach McGriff has not determined the other jumpers because the wet weather prevented them from practicing on the event.

Jones has been and will be quite an asset in the long jump and sprinting events. Jones surpassed 20' 9" in the long jump and ran 11.2 in the 100meter last year and is presently crossing in the low 15 seconds in the 110meter hurdles.

"He will definitely be one of our strongest sprinters and one of our strongest hurdlers," claimed McGriff. "We expect him to get out past 21 feet and perhaps 21' 6" in the long jump. He will be kind of like the type of jumper that Bowser was last year."

Juniors Jamil Coles, Justin Green and Anthony Cary will also add to the "speed crew" along with Jones and Woodward. Senior Tri-Captain Dan Harrison is the major force in the 400-hurdles.

Probably the Raiders' most solid event comes in their shot putting trio of junior Dan Loomis and seniors Scott Paterson and Jim Feeley.

"Loomis is our best shot putter who can throw over 51 feet," pointed out McGriff. "Paterson does over 49 feet and Feeley did over 46."

Senior Dave Lassan and Loomis are expected to lead in the discus events. Last year, each have exceeded 130 feet. McGriff anticipates that both will surpass the 140 foot range.

Junior Mike Grabel was the Raiders' main pole vaulter last year and is expected to exceed 11'6" this season. Vaulting with Grabel will be senior Mark Ricca and Steve Coles

Senior Josh Ricca and junior Nick Klastava will be the strongmen in the distance events. Ricca will focus on the 800 and 1,600-meter events and Klastava will compete in the 1,600

Raider Boys Look for Strong Push and Speed in Track

"We have a lot of inexperienced kids," said Raider Head Coach Brian Homm. "We are mixing and matching so far this year."

Returning starter senior Kevin Voessler is expected to start at third. Senior Tri-Captain Ryan Hahner will take over the catching responsibilities and Franzone or Timmy Pei will be at first base. Juniors Dan Gorey or Eddie Jackson may be at second and Bennie Martinez will play shortstop.

With Gerwirtz, Baumwoll and Cerchio gone, the Raiders must search for a pitching staff, especially a number one pitcher. "That is what I don't know yet. Right now I'm taking auditions for the pitching positions. Right now, I am looking for somebody to step up," commented Homm. "But, Dave Herrmann will be pitching as well as playing in the outfield."

Homm has many concerns; however, his primary focus has been

on the pitching. "Hopefully, after the scrimmages, I will be able to make my decision on the pitching rotation."

Junior Kevin Schenk will be playing the outfield and pitching. Senior Tri-Captain Joe Ascolese will be the backup catcher, a pitcher and may also play some at first base. Juniors Jerry Salerno and Paul O'Connor may see some time in the outfield.

Herrmann, Voessler and Franzone are expected to be the major men with the "metal sticks". Gorey, who has been hitting the ball well, is expected to be batting in the number two spot.

"They will have to perform for us," said Homm. "I am hoping that Martinez can do something for us in the leadoff spot. He is quick, but he still has to prove himself as a leadoff hitter."

Homm also feels that the Raiders have a long way to go defensively. "In our scrimmages, we have been hurting ourselves. We have been throwing the ball all over the place, but I think that Voessler, Martinez and Franzone will be solid in their positions.

Concerning the Raiders' prognosis for the season, Homm said, "With such a new team, we don't know what to expect. We hope to improve as the year goes on. We are going to shoot for a winning season."

Shutts, Hillman Get All-Union 1st Team

Westfield High School senior Megan Shutts and Scotch PlainsFanwood High School senior Christina Hillman have been named to the

Star Ledger Girls Winter Track First Team All-Union County list for their achievements in the 1,600-meter and shot put events, respectively.

Blue Devil sophomore Alexis Anzelone made the Second Team list in the 1,600-meters and the Raider 4x400-meter foursome also made the Second Team. Blue Devils Heather Dennis in the 800-meter and Kyle Legones in the 1,600-meters made the Third Team as did the Blue Devil 4x400-meter foursome.

Devils, Raiders Rule County Swimming

The Westfield High School and the Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School girls ruled the Star Ledger

Girls Swimming All-Union County First Team list and also filled in the majority of the spots on the Second and Third Team list. The Blue Devil girls grabbed six of the top 12 slots, the Raiders took one.

Devils Jesse Coxson, Ashley Saul and Chrissy Schwebel were named to the First Team in the 500-freestyle, the 100-butterfly and the 200freestyle, respectively. The Blue Devil relay teams also were named in the 200-freestyle, the 400freestyle and the 200-medley relay events. Raider Dana Berkowitz was named in the 200-individual medley and Union Catholic High School swimmer Lisa Dolansky was named in the 100-backstroke.

Raiders Missy Canniff and Annie Espinoza made the Second Team list in the 500-freestyle and the 100backstroke, respectively. The Raiders relay teams also made the Second Team in the 400-freestyle and the 200-medley relay. Blue Devils Kitty Fromtling and Katie Bartholomew made the Second Team in the 50-freestyle and the 100-breaststroke, respectively.

Raiders Jen Bassman in the 200individual medley and Beth Tumolo in the diving events made the Third Team as did the Raider 200-freestyle relay team. Blue Devil Chrissy Romano was selected in the 500freestyle and Governor Livingston swimmer Karen Bocian was selected in the 100-freestyle.

last year," said Martin. "He threw behind Greg (Gorski) and Jason (Krieger)."

Distance runners Mark Matthews and Bill Zacher have graduated, but Kaslusky, who was one of the Blue Devils best competitors last year, will lead the 800 and 1,600-meter events. Anzelone, also a strong middle-distance runner, will be quite an asset along with senior John Cognetti.

"Both were close to 2:00 in the 800-meters last year," said Martin of Anzelone and Cognetti.

Kaslusky, junior Matt Manahan and senior Brian Dowd will make up part of the 4x800 relay team this year. Presently, the Blue Devils are looking for a fourth man.

Probably the greatest improvement in depth will be in the sprinting events. Junior Seth Augustine, who ran the 100 and 200-meters in winter track, Jason Dreyer in the 200 and 400-meter, Francisco Valesquez in the 100 and 200meters and sophomore Erik Zemac in the 100-meters will increase the amperage.

"Seth is probably our fastest runner in the 100 and 200," said Martin. "I think that we have more speed than we had a year ago. So, that will help us; and, if we get some of them to run the 400, that will give us more flexibility."

Martin also hopes to work some of his sprinters into some of the field events such as the long jump and the high jump. "The high jump is going to be a question mark for us but I think in the long jump we will be pretty solid."

When asked what he considers his team's strength Martin, replied, "I

think that we are pretty solid, but the sprints, the vault and the middle distance events."

Martin added, "In experience, we are young. But I think that if we get good weather, we can train, and if we get good competition, we should see some improvement."

As for his outlook for the season, Martin said, "I believe that we could have a decent dual meet team and we should do pretty well in the conference. Scotch Plains should be overwhelming favorites."

"We are going to try to get second and beat Cranford," said Martin. "Cranford has a pretty good distance team this year, but I think that we have a little more depth

The Blue Devils open their season by competing at the Kearny Relays on April 3.

SP-F Soccer Jazz Girls Jam West Windsor Amazons, 5-0

The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Jazz girls inter-city soccer team enjoyed some home cooking as they coasted to 5-0 victory over the West Windsor Amazons at School One on March 28. This was the first home game of the spring season for the Jazz and despite more cold blustery weather the Jazz offense was on fire.

Early in the game the Jazz moved smartly up the field. Meaghan Kelly darted past two defenders and found Maddie Wasser in the middle of the field. Wasser cleverly dished the ball to Hallie Mintz who squirted through the defense and found Bitsy Kipping alone at West Windsor door step. Kipping found the right corner of the net to give the Jazz a lead they would never relinquish.

On goal number two Loni Kaye battled for a lose ball on the right wing and set up Mintz out in from of

the goal. Mintz found an opening and her accurate shot gave the Jazz a 2-0 lead at half time.

The Jazz came out smoking in the second half and dominated West Windsor so much it seemed as if the Jazz had a couple extra players out there. Jess McGarry started the onslaught as she maneuvered her way down the middle and found Shannon Hauser by the left post. Hauser made a nifty move and poked the ball into the left corner.

Lauren Mains then took over, making a determined assault on the Amazon defense, and broke through to score goal number four. The Jazz kept up the pressure with a flurry of shots by Lauren Hercel, Gaby Falco and Katie Van Haasteren, but didn't find the net. Then finally Briana Falco outsmarted the defense as she cut in to intercept a goal kick and whistled a shot from 16 yards away that caught the left corner and the Jazz had their 5-0 victory. ter, combining consistency with

power. Following the number one, two and three hitters the line up indicates no shortcomings in what is truly believed to be an amazing batting order.

Team captains Butler and Reilly reflected their expectations and goals for the season. Butler summed it up by saying, "We will do our best every game, give it all we have and good things will come along therefore assuring to meet the goals we set for ourselves We are not entering the season cocky or overconfident, but with the understanding and conviction if we all do our job well, we achieve success."

Butler has a positive influence, with very high expectations. As he put it, "We have such a great program, a winning program, and we're

Whitley will be throwing the shot and discus.

Comparing this season's team to last year, Klimas said, "I would like to think that we are a little bit ahead. There's a few more girls out this year. We have a talented group of sophomores who competed as freshmen, so they have a year of experience under their belt."

Considering his outlook this season, Klimas commented, "I feel pretty confident that we can score some big points in championship meets. Hopefully, we will be able to do something in the conference and in the sectionals."

fun to watch." Reilly a basketball standout, added, "Everyone on this team has been involved in fall and winter sports, hence we are in the best physical and mental condition possible. This team is together, fine tuned and our attitude is super positive, we have a collection and a chemistry that is very difficult and rare to assemble!"

Reilly continued, "Personally, I expect an outstanding performance at shortstop, make good contact at the plate and we will come away with the county championship."

The Highlanders beefed up their schedule with the likes of very strong and talented schools from Cranford, Millburn, Union, Immaculata and Edison. They will open their season today at Hillside, then will travel to Cranford on April 3.

SPF Express, 4-3

A short-handed Scotch PlainsFanwood Express soccer team suffered a close defeat on March 28 to Cranford. Missing three key players, the Express scored first on an owngoal when Joseph Jacobi's strong free kick bounced off a Cranford defender's head into the goal.

After Cranford tied the score, the Express took the lead again when Clayton Balch picked up Mark Ciecura's corner kick and punched it into the left corner of the goal. The 21 halftime lead did not hold up, however, as the Express, battling the wind and lack of substitutes, gave up two quick goals to fall behind 3-2.

Midway through the second half, Jacobi launched another strong free kick. Matt Fleissner's perfect timing allowed him to burst past the defenders simultaneously with the ball and score one-on-one against the goalie. Minutes later, Cranford scored the deciding goal on a penalty kick. Jack Davis and Henry Coxe played well at halfback, and Joe Cepparulo contributed many strong clearing kicks from the fullback position.

SP-F Strikers Hammer Flemington Cougars 4-0

The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Strikers soccer team turned out a great game against the Flemington Cougars, winning 4-0, in the second game of the Spring season.

In the first half of the game, the first point was scored by Tyler Stanek. Later, the Cougars attempted a shot on goal, but it was blocked by Tommy Sutter, using his head, literally. Jeff Stuart and Brandon Reddington each took a turn as goalkeeper and succeeded in blocking the few shots that the Cougars were able to take.

Goal number two was scored by Daniel LiVolsi. Michael DiVizio, known for his speed, was easily able to keep the Cougars at bay. Eddie Kahn and Rob Cunningham used plenty of determination and fancy

footwork to keep the Cougars scoreless.

During the second half, the Cougars were attempting to defend their goal, when Stanek stole the ball away from them and handed it off to Reddington who seized the opportunity and kicked the ball into the net making the score 3-0. Ryan Krueger was instrumental in blocking an attempt on goal, and played a great game despite the stitches in his hand.

Taylor Molinaro, as goalkeeper, successfully blocked anything being fired his way. Tim Stuart was able to keep the ball moving downfield and was a tremendous help in keeping the SP-F U-9 Strikers on top of the game. The fourth and final goal was fired by Timmy Leischner.
