Ken Sinkovitz, a 2003 Bergen Catholic graduate, was a standout student-athlete who earned distinction for his community contributions on and off the track. He was named North Jersey Athlete of the Decade’ for the 2000s in Track & Field by The Record in recognition of his having been named a two-time All-American, three-time All-State, and eight-time All-County mid-distance runner. The versatile two-time State Champion broke many school, county, and state records while earning national rankings in six different events his senior year. The Bergen Catholic track team enjoyed two Bergen County titles during Ken’s tenure. He is best known for his 2002 800-meter State title when he dove across the finish line to dramatically win by the slimmest of margins. The Br. Peter Lawrence Alumni Scholarship recipient was also an outstanding and very involved student, playing active roles in Bergen Catholic’s Student Government Association, Red & Gold Club, and Peer Ministry. He continued his education and athletic career at Princeton University, where he prepared for a promising business career and also co-founded a non-profit organization that empowers Cuban youth.
