Continuing the Moorestown Boys Track tradition of giving record plates to previous school record holders, Maria Middleton, wife of the late Barry Middleton, recently accepted Mr. Middleton’s plate from current record holder Kevin Fox.

Middleton’s 800M record of 1:55.4 was set in 1963 and was the oldest boys track record remaining before current senior Kevin Fox broke it last season. Fox’s performance of 1:52.60 ranked him number one in New Jersey at the time. He has committed to run in college for Notre Dame University.
