Jan. 3, 2023—The Bob Petruski Toms River Classic was hosted at the Rothman Orthopaedic Sports Complex Dec. 21.
The event was organized to honor the legendary district track coach, who passed away in June 2022, and to recognize all of his work dedicated to students and student-athletes of Toms River over the years.
The classic was a tri-meet among High School East, High School North, and High School South. North took home both the boys and girls championships, but that was almost an afterthought as the event’s namesake was the star, as intended.
“It was a great night to celebrate Bob at the track,” said Kyle Austin, who utilized drone footage to develop a video of the event.
