Farmingdale, N.Y. - At the New Jersey Athletic Conference Championships, the men's outdoor track team placed seventh, while the women's team did not score.
Freshman Jyaire Ewa (North Massapequa, N.Y.) earned Second Team All-Conference honors this season after recording a runner-up finish in the hammer throw at the NJAC Championships.
