Mehari Earns All-Eastern Region Honors

After a breakout season, which included Conference, County, and State Sectional titles, Livingston High School senior Philmon Mehari was still hungry.

Up until the Group 4 State Championship, he had been outrun by only one athlete in a photo finish with both contestants recorded with the same finish time. He had miscalculated his opponent that day in September, early in the season, and after the race he told his coach, “This won’t happen again.”

Mehari was true to his word week after week, gauging the competition, and winning. At the Group 4 meet, he was dealing with a slight respiratory issue heading into the last three quarters of a mile and lost several places. However, he still finished in tenth plce, automatically qualifying for the Meet of Champions.

High School Girls’ Cross Country Team Finishes Eighth at County Championships

The Livingston High School girls’ cross country team competed in the Essex County Championships on Friday, November 1, at Brookdale Park in Bloomfield.

“The Lady Lancers knew they needed to mentally and physically be ready for a Friday evening battle,” recounted coach Dave Czeizinger. “Team goals had been discussed, personal race plans laid out, and the squad rested in preparation for the tough competition they would face from the other county schools represented at the meet. The crew had worked very hard over the past two weeks preparing for the race.” The Lancer girls were represented in the junior varsity and varsity championships, noted the coach, “opting to give their freshman runners more experience at the 5K distance instead of the shorter 3,200 meter mixed freshman race.”

More than 230 female competitors from Essex County participated in the competition. The JV and varsity competitors ran a 3.1 mile course, after the mixed boys’/girls’ 3,200 meter race.
