Johnny was a 4-year letterman on the Tornado Track squad from 1964thru 1968. Very few have compiled the kind of records he did as both a high school and college runner.

In 1967 Nicoletti was the Southern Conference Mile and 880 Champion, the District IV Mile Champion and finished 6th in the Mile and 7th in the 880 at the State Championship Meet.

His Senior year he did even better. He repeated as Champion in both the Mile and 880 in the Southern Conference and District IV meet; but moved up to second in the 880 and third in the mile at the State Championship meet.

He also captained that fine Tornado squad and set school records in the 880, Mile, and Two Mile; then participated as part of the Mile Relay, Two Mile Relay and Sprint Medley Relay Teams which also set school records.

From 1968 through 1971 he continued a fine running career at Mount St. Mary’s College. He was the 1970 Mason Dixon Mile Champion and finished 3rd in the NCAA Regional Meet in his Mile specialty.

He also captained the Mt. St. Mary’s team while there set school records in the 1000 Yard Indoor, Mile Indoor & Outdoor, 2 Mile Relay, 4 Mile Relay and the Distance Medley Relay.

Niccoletti presently lives in Pleasant Valley New York.
