Former WDHS Track Athlete Tearing Up NJAC

Matt Curtis, now a junior at Rutgers-Camden, has won the NJAC Indoor Track Athlete of the Week award in twice in three tries this season.

Former West Deptford High School track star Matt Curtis has been on quite a roll at Rutgers-Camden this indoor season.

In three track meets so far this season, Curtis has been named the NJAC Men’s Indoor Track and Field Track Athlete of the Week twice already this year.

Curtis was the top Division III runner in 400-meter dash in the Collegeville Classic last week at Ursinus College. His time of 50.18 seconds was good enough for second place overall, behind only Damien Boham of Division II East Stroudsburg. His time from last weekend's meet is good enough to qualify him for the ECAC season-end championships.

Curtis also won the NJAC Indoor Track and Field Track Athlete of the Week award back in the first week of December after winning the 400-meter dash at the Bow-Tie Track and Field Classic at Ursinus. Curtis also anchored the Scarlet Raptors' winning 4x800-meter relay team that weekend.

A member of the Class of 2010, Curtis won the NJSIAA Group 2 indoor 400-meter title during his senior season with a time of 52.32. He currently holds six individual school record at Rutgers-Camden, including record times in in the 60-meter, 200-meter, 400-meter and 500-meter dashes for the indoor team.
