1973 Girls Track and Field Team
    The foundation upon which the Shore Regional girls athletic program was built, was the accomplishment of the 1973 Girls Track and Field team. The Blue Devils made history in taking home the 1973 NJSIAA State Championship. In winning, they became the first State Champion team in any sport in school history. They remain the school’s only girls’ track and field to win an overall state title.
    The team finished undefeated with a record of 10-0, winning the Division title, the Sectional State title, and the overall State Championship, handing Red Bank Catholic their first State meet loss in 9 years by a score of 42-33.
    Medal winners in the State Finals went to: Kathy Leslie- javelin, high jump, long jump, Judy Seger-discus, Debbie Obach, Kim Rock, Diane Chapman, Kyle DeSanto-440 relay, Louise Lund-110 hurdles, Diane Chapman- 220 yd, Sandy Quackenbush-shot put and high jump, Kim Stone, Dawn Pratt, Kyle DeSanto, Louise Lund- 880 relay.  Although individual performances stood out in the finals, it was the season long dedication of every athlete that made this team special. Many performers garnered division, county and State honors and there are 17 school records that still exist in 2019 from the 1973 team.
    Shore’s remarkable run combined great individual accomplishments and extraordinary team depth. Words can never be enough to repay and praise these women for being the building blocks to a blueprint of competitiveness, hard work and athletic success at Shore Regional.
