Ocean County NJ championships top 10 performers


- Advertisment -

There are few surprises in this modern age of high school track & field, when results are widely available and the progress of the most talented athletes is chronicled from ninth grade onward.

Steven Bado is a major exception.

After playing soccer, basketball and volleyball for 11 seasons, the Jackson Memorial senior burst onto the track scene at the Bill Bruno Ocean County Championships. On Thursday, he won the boys 100-meter dash in a blistering time of 10.81 seconds. On Saturday, he triumphed in the 200 (22.22) and hammered a jaw-dropping anchor on the 4×100, rallying the Jaguars from 10 meters down to a 43.40 victory.

“People said I was the best-kept secret,” Bado said. “Now people are texting me, ‘Dude who are you? What do you eat?’ I just run from Point A to Point B and that’s that.”

Bado’s emergence is a testament to an old-school mindset. Even though his father, also named Steven Bado, is Jackson Memorial’s soccer coach, young Steven never specialized. He grew up playing soccer and basketball, then added volleyball in middle school.

“The way I live is, you’re only in high school once,” Bado Jr. said. “Look at me, I played four sports for fun. As long as you find something you enjoy doing, I say you should do as many sports as you possibly can. You’re only a kid once.”
