Union Catholic High School Celebrates Olympian Sydney McLaughlin


Union County Freeholders Bette Jane Kowalski and Alexander Mirabella congratulate Olympian Sydney McLaughlin during the Union Catholic High School Sydney McLaughlin Recognition Event in Scotch Plains. McLaughlin, a senior at Union Catholic, qualified for the U.S. Olympic Team in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles at the age of 16, and advanced to the semifinal round in the 400 hurdles at the Olympic Games in Rio last month.

This summer she became the youngest member of the U.S. Olympic track and field team since 1972.
