Kim Mineo is one of Glen Rock High School’s most accomplished multisport athletes. She was selected by The Record for three All-Decade teams: Track, Winter Track and Soccer.
Kim was an unprecedented three-time winner of the 800 meters at the State Meet of Champions. She was also Group 1, State Champion in the 800 in her Sophomore Year; Group 1, State Champion in the 400, the 800 and the 400 Intermediate Hurdles in her Junior Year; and Group 1, State Champion in the 800 and the 400 Intermediate Hurdles in her Senior Year. In 2010, the Record chose Kim’s victory in the 2001 Meet of Champions as the “Moment of the Decade.” In that race, she was in fifth place with 250 meters to go but sprinted to win the race in 2:12.12. Overall she won 11 State Sectional titles, eight Bergen Group titles and six State Group 1 titles and was twice named by The Record as “Athlete of the Week.”
Kim still holds the meet record for the fastest time (58.0) at the BPSL Championship in the 400 and for the fastest time at the Group 1, State Sectional Championship in both the 800 (2:13.9) and the 400 Intermediate Hurdles (63.0). (Needless to say she also holds the school record in all three of those races). Along with Hall of Fame Inductee Erin Henry, she led Glen Rock’s Track team to BPSL; Group 1, Bergen County; Group 1, State Sectional; and Group 1, State Championships in 2001, 2002 and 2003. As a result, The Record called Glen Rock the Program of the Decade.
She was also one of Glen Rock’s top all-time soccer players. She and 2016 Hall of Famer Leah Jerome helped lead Glen Rock to the Group 1, State Championship in 1999 and 2002 (Co-Champs that year). Her 33 goals and 21 assists as a senior put her on the 1st Team, Group 1, All State. In 2010, she received Honorable Mention from the Bergen Record for its All Decade Soccer Team. After graduating from Glen Rock, Kim attended and played soccer at Rutgers University (with Carli Lloyd) and was named a Big-East Academic All-Star and inducted into Chi Alpha Sigma. She also played at the semi-pro level.
Kim earned her MBA at NYU and is working as a consultant for Cognizant Tech Solutions in Media and Entertainment.
Kim and her husband Tom live in Franklin Lakes with their dog Penny.
