April 12, 2024-- High School South’s Julia Santos (right) has been named the Field Event Athlete of the Year by the Shore Track Coaches Association.

Julia finished the indoor season as the top athlete from New Jersey at the New Balance National Championships in Boston, and was recently accepted to represent HSS in the shot put event at the Penn Relays, the oldest, largest, and one of the most prestigious track and field competitions in the country, held annually since 1895.

Meanwhile, Julia’s track teammate Kendall Howe (left) was also recognized by the Shore Track Coaches Association, as First Team All Shore in pole vault. Kendall’s dominance in the event spanning competitions throughout Ocean and Monmouth counties earned her the nod, and she also represented South at the New Jersey Meet of Champions.

Congratulations to these two HSS track stars on phenomenal seasons, and good luck to Julia at the Penn Relays!
