Salvatore Catanzaro, winner of the 11-12 boys 80 yard hurdles, 100 meter dash and long jump at Sunday's NJ Striders Track & Field Meet in Rutherford, is the Athlete of the Week. The sixth grader is in his first year as a member of the Wood-Ridge Recreation Track and Field team.
"This is the first time in the 16-year history of Wood-Ridge competing in the NJ Striders that one of our athletes took first place in the three events in one meet," said head coach Ezio Altamura. "Sal is a natural athlete who is a pleasure to coach."
Wood-Ridge Recreation track consists of 86 athletes.
"They are all winners for competing each weekend," said Altamura.
