The Vernon Township High School Athletic Dept. named its Athletes of the Week for the spring 2018 service.

Junior Kyle Dunbar made a great impact in the boys track team's win over Hackettstown last week. Kyle won the 200 and 400-meter events and took third in the long jump. Kyle won the 200-meter event with a personal best time.

According to Coach Saganiec, Kyle is one of the leaders of the team and his hard work and leadership is one of the reasons for the early season success for the boys team.

Junior Victoria Grifone is once again having a stellar season from the mound for the varsity softball team. The Vikings won all three of their games last week, beating Mount Olive, Mendham and Kittatinny.

Victoria had a total of 40 strikeouts and supported the team offensively with four hits and four RBIs.

According to Coach Ludeking, Victoria is self-driven and works extremely hard every day. She is a great leader and role model for the program.
