Harry Carle is a member of a family that produced five outstanding student-athletes at Bergen Catholic. A graduate from the BC Class of 1985, he enjoyed an outstanding four-year career on the Crusaders cross country and track teams. He was a First Team All-County selection four times and was an All-State cross country honoree in 1984. Harry won the 1984 Bergen County Meet of Champions cross country title and three other individual county titles on the track. His 9:07.6 3200-meter performance in the 1985 State Meet of Champions set a then-Bergen County outdoor record, and is one of six school records that he holds. Harry also owns the 1600-meter record (4:14.9) and a pair of indoor marks (4:23.8 in the 1600-meter run and 8:45.03 in the 3000 meter run), and ran the two fastest BC times at two different cross country courses (Garrett Mountain Reservation and Warinanco Park). The Record selected Harry to its All-Decade cross country team for the 1980s. After graduating from Bergen Catholic, he competed for St. Thomas Aquinas College, where he was a two-time NAIA All-America selection. Harry proudly followed in the footsteps of brothers, Pat ’72, Marty ’74, Chris ’76 and Gene ’80, all outstanding track stars.
