Outdoor T&F Ties Record With 21st State Title


CBA Athletics | 6/5/2017

For the 21st time in the program's storied history, the Christian Brothers Academy outdoor track & field team won the Non-Public A State Championship on Friday and Saturday in Egg Harbor Township.

The 21 state championships are the most for a non-public school and ties the all-groups state record with Montclair Township.

CBA won this title by 20 points over outdoor rival Union Catholic. It's the second straight title for the Colts, after Union Catholic had won the previous three.

The Colts were once again paced by senior Tim Jacoutot, who won the 110 meter hurdles on Friday and the 400 meter hurdles on Saturday. The Monmouth University commit also finished second in the 200 meter hurdles on Saturday.

Sophomore sprinter Tim McInerney won the 800 meter dash in 1:54.92.

Junior Dan Mead had his best performance of the year with wins in both the shot put and discus throws. Senior Nick Ebert notched a win in the pole vault with a clearance of 13 feet. Senior Brendan Bodisch, a Bucknell commit, once again took the top spot in the long jump finals at 22 feet.

Princeton University-bound senior Drake Anzano finished second in the 1600 meter dash, while teammate and Richmond commit Noah Yuro was just behind him in third. In the 3200 meter run, junior Brian Hill finished second.

Christian Brothers also took first in the 4x800 meter relay with the all-senior squad of Joe Boyle, Riley Gardner, JP Stark and Genero Anzalone.

"It took a total team effort to win, but the boys came together- as brothers do - and got the victory," head coach Karl Torchia said. "Our seniors really stepped up and made this an incredibly exciting championship for us."

The outdoor win completes the "triple crown" of running titles for CBA. The Colts won NJSIAA Non-Public A championships in cross country, indoor track, and now, outdoor track.
