About This Site
This web site was conceived, designed, and built by Julian Applebaum, a graduate in the Westfield High School Class of 2009. A three season Track and Cross Country runner, Julian competed for the Blue Devils from his first day as a freshman through the final months of his senior year. Over this time, Julian earned eight varsity letters between Cross Country, winter and spring Track. Specializing in the 5k, 800m and 1600m races, Julian logged impressive times in all three seasons.

In his senior year, Julian served as a tri-captain for the 2008 cross country team. He pushed himself and his fellow runners to do their absolute best in both practice and competition.
Julian built this site as an independent project to address the unique needs of Westfield's popular and prestigious XC, Track and Field programs. Leveraging his prior experiences in computer science, graphic design, and video production, Julian sought to create a site that could be a unique and valuable part of Blue Devil culture.

Julian went to college at Wesleyan University, where he majored in Computer Science and ran track and cross country for three years. He now works as a Software Engineer and lives in Brooklyn.

Jonathan Applebaum, the proud father of Julian Applebaum, is the president of A Train Productions, a diversified media services and event videography company (www.atrainproductions.com). One of A Train’s specialties is the authoring of complex databases utilizing Filemaker Pro, which, coincidentally, is the program used to compile all of the athlete performance data on this website. As the Westfield XC, Track & Field programs have been so beneficial and influential to Julian, it was without reservation that Jonathan devoted the hundreds of hours required to develop the custom software that complements Julian's vision for this site, which itself consumed countless hours of development during some of the most stressful periods in any high school student’s life.

Jonathan wishes to thank both Coach Martin and Buccino for their willing participation and patience during the development of the database software, as well as to Julian for dreaming up a challenging, enduring, and rewarding father-son project that will benefit the Westfield XC, Track & Field programs for many years to come.
