Hillsborough Jr. Raiders Track & Field Bring Home Medals

Posted by the Hillsborough Jr. Raiders blog 

The Hillsborough Jr. Raiders Track & Field team attended the Second Annual Skylands Conference Championships for youth level at North Hunterdon High School on May 18th. This year over 50 Hillsborough athletes, from this year’s 130, challenged over 400 athletes from 8 other teams from the greater central New Jersey area in the 9-14 year old brackets. Many personal bests were achieved and medals earned for the hours of hard work and training. The full results can be found onwww.jrraiders.org under the track heading and following the directions under 2014 results. The coaches were all heard saying what a great effort all the athletes put forth and the sportsmanship shown among all the competitors. It was a great day for the Jr. Raiders and for Hillsborough.
