Wins Teammate Award

Wins Teammate Award

Bailey Krug, a 2020 graduate of Livingston High School, received the Yogi Berra Teammate of the Year Award during a virtual ceremony on April 20.

“The experience was definitely different but very special,” he said. “While we weren’t able to gather and support one another in person, it was nice to be able to see the other winners, and hear stories from Yogi Berra’s family and the president and CEO of Investors Bank, which sponsors the event.”

Krug played both football and lacrosse his four years at LHS, and served as varsity captain in both sports as a senior.

Tennis Coach Reflects on Loss of Season

Tennis Coach Reflects on Loss of Season

Editor’s Note: Livingston High School tennis coach Elliot Lovi submitted this reflection on the loss of the Lancer boys’ tennis team’s season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Last Thursday, May 21, 2020, was the day that the Livingston High School boys’ tennis team had hoped to compete in the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA), Group IV State Tournament semi-finals and finals. The North Jersey Sectional final had been scheduled for Monday, May 18, with the State Tournament today at Mercer County Park, West Windsor. The COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic ended the spring sports season for all New Jersey public and non-public high schools on May 3 with governor Phil Murphy’s announcement that all New Jersey schools will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year, followed by the NJSIAA statement cancelling the season. The LHS tennis team’s last practice on the Memorial Park tennis courts was on March 13.

Track Coach Reflects on “Lost Season”

Editor’s Note: A Livingston High School track coach submitted this reflection on the “lost season” of 2020, and the effect it has on students and coaches alike.

Spring track and field – the exhilaration as you cross the finish line; letting that javelin fly and watching its airborne path; landing in the sand after a nice jump; clearing the bar at your goal height. These things were not to be for the 2020 campaign. So many lost memories: practices, team meetings, competitions, team dinners, personal bests, the camaraderie and more. This has become the reality for athletes. I feel deeply for each and every one of them, from all over the country. It’s a devastating loss.

Milesplit, a national data base of track and field performances and events decided to host a virtual track meet by encouraging track and field athletes from all over the United States to submit videos of their individual performances as a way to continue to compete. Inspired by this, the coaches at Livingston High School decided to do the same locally. The athletes submitted their performances through an app on their phones through another track and field data base. “Another surprise that came from the experience was that other athletes from the United States also looking for competition entered the Livingston meet!” said coach Nancy Petryna.

As the student athletes of Livingston High School continue their remote learning, they have continued to train under the guidance of their spring coaches. This includes the track and field team. Each week, their coaches provide daily workouts via a text remind service. These workouts are posted in a special Google Classroom, along with motivational videos and training tips.

During the week, technique sessions are offered via Zoom sessions to help build specific skills in areas such as sprint starts, jumping skills, hurdle mobility, or just an athlete check-in. Every Friday, a team favorite “30 for 30” session is held, during which up to 40 athletes log in to Zoom for “30 for 30 at 3” to complete a 30 second strength or cardio exercise, followed by 30 seconds of rest, for 30 minutes. This is followed by special arm building and abdominal drills, all under the encouraging eyes and voices of their coaches.
