Jessica Abbott

North Dover Elementary fifth grader Jessica Abbott recently returned from the Junior Olympic National Championships in Reno, Nevada, where she ran the 3k race against 265 of the best runners in the country in her age group.

Jessica placed second in the country with a time of 12:02. The North Dover Pirates and the entire Toms River Regional Schools community is so proud of her accomplishment!
