The 2021 New Jersey High School State Championship featured 13 teams battling it out for the Elizabeth Olsen Memorial Trophy. A light west breeze gradually picked up over the course of the day, slowly working its way northwest at 8 to 12 knots. A total of 20 races were completed, 14 W4 races and 6 W3 races.
Toms River North and Christian Brothers Academy once again found themselves locked in a back and forth battle for the entire day. It was North that won three of the final four races to squeak out a three-point victory over CBA. Ranney, Donovan Catholic and Biotechnology completed the top five.
CBA's Ryan Ehnot and Mitchell Hnatt won the A Division by 14 points, while North's Everett Botwinick and Iliana Vasslides won the B Division by 17 points, accounting for the three point difference in the standings.
Thank you to Dr. Randall Nunn and Dave Magno for running the races and tending to the course. Of course, a big thank you to TRYC for allowing us to use the facilities, the BBYRA for the FJ fleet, and OCC for the 420 fleet.
Congratulations to Toms River North for their first-ever state championship! With multiple repeat champions, North is just the sixth school in 12 years to win the title.
