The Athlete of the Week: Jeremy Burrell Boys’ Spring Track The Boys Spring Track Team is concluding another successful season filled with fast times, far throws, and big jumps. With the combination of hard work and dedication, the boys have won another GMC Blue Division title. One of the main contributors to the success of the team this season, is from the sprinting and hurdling skills of Jeremy Burrell. Coming off a stellar performance in the county championships, Jeremy was poised to make some noise in the Group 3 state sectionals two weeks ago. He placed 3rd overall in the 100m dash, 2nd overall in the 110m hurdles, and lastly was a member of the boys’ 4x100m relay team that took first overall and were crowned sectional champs. This past weekend, against even tougher competition, Jeremy competed in the Group 3 state championship. With a trip to the Meet of Champions on the line, Jeremy ran and hurdled past his competition to secure his spot in all three of his events for this coming week. Along with 4 other members of the Tigers Spring Track Team, Jeremy Burrell will be competing at the Meet of Champions this coming Saturday.

The Athlete of the Week: Aiden Medina Boys’ Tennis The South Plainfield High School Tennis team had an amazing season. They finished with an overall record of 11-9 and a division record of 8-6. Junior captain, Aiden Medina, has been the vital force for the Tiger Tennis team this year. Aiden’s overall record was 18-4 and had a division record of 13-2. Aiden earned the honor of being the Most Valuable Player this season and made the All-White Division Team. His athleticism, determination, and innate ability to adjust to all types of players, has given him the ultimate competitive edge. The South Plainfield Boys’ Tennis program is excited for Aiden to lead the Tigers again next season.
Congratulations to seniors Sarai Adams and Tyler Balent for being selected as the GMC Scholar Athletes for South Plainfield.
Students who participated in Artists and Activists, researched the Lost Souls project about a corrupt judge in East Brunswick in 1818 who sold free Black people to slave owners in the south. Our SPMS students wanted to pay tribute to the original memorial quilt created by students in New Brunswick. Our quilt is meant to not only remember those who were sold in the slave ring, but all people of color who are affected by violence in their lives.
The Athlete of the Week: Joseph Oduro Boys’ Spring Track The Boys’ Spring Track team won both the Blue Division Relay and Blue Division Championship this season. This past week, two large jumps and two new school records led to two gold medals at the GMC Championships for the Brown University bound Senior Joseph Oduro. Joe has been an integral part of the success the Tigers have had this entire season. First, on Tuesday night at the Triple Jump, Joe leapt his way into South Plainfield History with a 47 foot, 4.5 inch jump. This attempt broke Joe’s previous school record as well as his closest competitor by over two feet. The distance also won the county gold for Joe in the Triple Jump for the second straight year. Joe now stands alone on top of the State Leaderboard with the best Triple Jump in New Jersey. Wednesday night was just as eventful. At the long jump, Joe saved his best leap for his last as the 23 foot, 1.5 inch distance claimed first and beat out the silver medalist by just one inch. Trailing going into the finals, Joe put together a great push to out jump the top two and move into first place. This attempt also broke the school record previously held by Deshai Smith. The Tigers and Joe look to compete in the Sectional Championships this coming week.
The Athlete of the Week: Dylan Jefferys Golf The South Plainfield High School golf team had an outstanding season this year. Their season record was 17-2 with the only two losses coming from the division winning Edison Eagles. The Tigers also made it to the final day of the GMC tournament as a team. Junior Dylan Jefferys was the captain and leader of this great season. Dylan shot a best 3 over 36 and averaged just 4 over par for the season. He also was a top candidate for All White Division golfer this year, just behind Edison Eagles number one golfer. With the return of Dylan next year and no seniors graduating, South Plainfield is looking forward to another successful season, with eyes on a division title.
The Kennedy School 4th grade classes spent part of the day showing their appreciation to our school grounds and sprucing up the front of the entrance. The students placed new “Kennedy rocks” in the flower beds and moved some of the older ones to make the front look nicer. The students also cleaned up around the recess area and by the high school track.
