March 7: Ospreys Earn NJAC All-Conference Honors in Three Events

The 2012 outdoor season marked the end of the distinguished career of men’s coach Bill Preston who retired after 16 years at Stockton and over 40 years coaching track and cross country. Preston, who also coached the Osprey cross country teams, helped Stockton student-athletes to five individual national championships and 34 All-American honors.

Preston’s contributions to the Stockton programs extended off the track where he served as a positive role model and mentor to countless Ospreys including his successor, Stockton alumnus Jayson Resch.

The Stockton track & field teams competed in eight meets during the 2012 outdoor season, including three that the Ospreys hosted at G. Larry James Stadium. While most of the meets did not have team scoring, the men’s squad placed a season-best fourth at the CTC Championships while the women finished fifth at the CTC Championships and NJAC Championships.

The Stockton men won a total of 20 individual events during the season, led by freshman Tim Miller with four wins in the high jump and two more in the long jump. Randy Faiges won the steeplechase four times and Kevin Miller totaled four wins with two apiece in the javelin and discus. Ryan Mazzeo and Alex Bruno completed the list of multiple winners with two victories in the pole vault and 5000m respectively. Dan Hemmerlin added one win in the high jump and the 4x100 relay also won once.

The Stockton women’s team notched seven individual event wins during the 2012 campaign. Morgan Sinclair was the lone multiple victor with one win each in the 3000m and 10,000m. Laura Warren posted a victory in the steeplechase while Nikki Stratton and Meagan Simmons contributed a win in the long jump and triple jump respectively. The Ospreys also received contributions from a pair of freshmen in the throwing events as Bree Hudik recorded a victory in the discus and Christine Eiserle won the javelin once.

Seven Ospreys qualified for NJAC all-conference status including a pair of two-event honorees. Kevin Miller earned an NJAC Second Team nod in the discus and NJAC Honorable Mention in the javelin while Hudik was NJAC Second Team in the hammer throw and NJAC Honorable Mention in the discus. Faiges collected NJAC Second Team honors in the steeplechase and Stratton was NJAC Second Team in the long jump. Tim Miller (high jump), Khayriy Tilghman (high jump) and James Rivers (10,000m) all earned NJAC Honorable Mention.

The Stockton indoor track & field teams competed in six meets during the 2011-12 season as young squads with just one female senior and four men’s seniors. The Ospreys finished fifth on the women’s side and sixth on the men’s side at the season-ending NJAC Championships.

Stockton team members won two individual events during the season as they posted one victory apiece in the women’s 3000-meter run and men’s pole vault. Morgan Sinclair won the 3000m at the University of Delaware Thomsen Invitational and Ryan Mazzeo captured the pole vault at the CTC Championships.

Mazzeo led a group of five Stockton men that earned NJAC all-conference recognition as he collected an NJAC Second Team honor in the pole vault. Alex Bruno, James Maloney, Rich O’Connor and Dillon Glasser earned NJAC Honorable Mention spots in the 4x800 relay. Morgan Sinclair notched an NJAC Honorable Mention nod in the women’s 5000m.

The Ospreys broke school records in three relays during the season. Bruno, Maloney, O’Connor and Glasser set a new record in the 4x800 at the NJAC Championships. Bruno, Glasser, Randy Faiges and Karl Petrini established a new mark in the 4x1 mile at the CTC Relay Carnival. Nicole Salge, Sara Bridge, Caitlyn Kozlowski and Barbara Prokopiuk set a school record in the women’s 4x1 mile at the CTC Relays as well.
