Willingboro boys pile up an incredible 78 POINTS and build a 52-point lead on Day 1 of sectionals!!!!!

The Willingboro boys scored an astounding 78 points on Day 1 of the Central Jersey Group 1 Championships at Howell.

Official team scoring wasn’t available Thursday night, but it looks like Middlesex is in second with 26 points and Burlington City one point back with 24.

Willingboro, which has bounced around various groups and in both South and Central Jersey, last won a Central Jersey sectional title in 2005, when it won its second straight CJ-3 title in Franklin Township. Willingboro won South Jersey Group 2 last year.

In all, Willingboro has won 18 sectional titles, 16 of them in South Jersey and the two in Central Jersey. That’s most of any South Jersey boys program.

The Chimeras on Friday scored 20 points in the high jump, 14 each in the 400 and intermediate hurdles, 11 in the triple jump, 10 in the discus and nine in the 100.

In the intermediates, senior Jayire King won [57.03] and senior Dinonn Capp was fourth [1:00.21], and in the 100, senior Zaire Clements [11.16] and freshman Jaylen Young [11.36] was sixth. Senior Elijah Valmon, King and Young went 2-4-5 in the 400 in 50.71, 51.48 and 52.37.

In the field, senior Emmanuel Lewis III won the discus at 151-4, juniors Kameron Smith and Nate Robertson went 1-2 in the high jump, both clearing 6-2, and freshman Anaias Hughes was fifth at 5-6. Robertson also won the triple jump at 43-10 and junior Dontavis Wilson was sixth at 40-2 1/4.

And 10 events to go!

Kingsway’s Orion Joyner pops all-time S.J. #5 triple jump, breaks SJ-4 record!!!!!! EHT’s Mubeen Momodu also surpasses record!!!!!

Kingsway senior Orion Joyner demolished the South Jersey Group 4 meet record in the triple jump Friday on his way to the No. 5 mark in South Jersey history.

Joyner added more than a foot and a half to his PR of 46-5, which he recorded at indoor Easterns at the Armory in February, where he placed second to Meldon Grant of Manhasset. His previous outdoor PR was a 45-9 at the Woodbury Relays last month.

Joyner broke the S.J.-4 meet record of 47-4 1/4, set in 2015 by the late Zakiyy Williams of Rancocas Valley. RIP, Zakiyy!

Joyner’s mark is No. 26 in state history and No. 5 in South Jersey history. Four of the top six marks in South Jersey history have been recorded by Gloucester County jumpers:

50-9 1/4 … Khaliel Burnett [Delsea], 2018
48-3 1/4 … Ryan Chance [Glassboro], 2009
48-1 1/4 … Orion Joyner [Kingsway], 2019
48-0 … Josh Butler [Delsea], 2006

Mubeen Momodu of Egg Harbor was also above Williams’ former meet record with a 47-9 jump. That’s No. 8 in South Jersey history and breaks the Atlantic County record of 46-2 1/2 set in 2012 by Darnell Charles of Oakcrest. Momodu added more than three feet to his previous PR of 44-3, set at the South Jersey Invitational earlier this month.

Joyner also placed fifth in the 400-meter hurdles with a 57.38, another personal best.

Wilson’s Dennisha Page sprints to one of the greatest performances in state history with historic record-setting 100-400 double!!!!!!!!

What an incredible day for Dennisha Page!!!!!

The Woodrow Wilson senior destroyed the South Jersey Group 3 meet records in both the 100- and 400-meter dashes Friday at Delsea and raced her way into the top 10 in South Jersey history in both races!

Page won the 100 with in 11.69 after a meet-record and personal-best 11.68 in the trials. She won the 400 in a PR and meet-record 54.41.

She now ranks No. 6 in South Jersey history in the 100 and No. 8 in the 400. On the all-time state list, she’s now No. 14 in the 100 and No. 24 in the 400!

Page is only the fifth girl in state history to run sub-11.70 and sub-55. The others are Regina Trotter of Weequahic (11.68 and 54.3 in 1991), Olivia Baker of Columbia (11.64 in 2013 and 52.46 in 2014), Shavon Greaves of Lakewood (11.61 and 54.73 in 2007) and Olympic gold medalist English Gardner of Eastern.

In the 100, Page broke the S.J. Group 3 meet record of 11.75, set in 2017 by Winslow Township’s Shakira Dancy. She tied the overall South Jersey fully automatic record of 11.68 set in 2016 by Williamstown’s Bria Mack.

In the 400, Page broke the S.J.-3 record of 54.5 set in 1996 by Dana Burnette of Williamstown and matched in 2002 by Shakeema Martin of Lakewood.

Her previous 100 best was an 11.90 when she was second in last year’s Meet of Champions, and her previous 400 best was a 55.70 at the Camden County Championships earlier this month.

Oh yeah … Page also long jumped 17-7 1/4, another personal best, and took third behind two of the state’s best – Tierra Hooker of Timber Creek (18-9 1/2) and Tionna Tobias of Winslow Township (18-7). It was the first major meet this year she’s longed jumped. Her previous PR was 17-2 1/4 last year.

Bring on the 200!!!!!

Eastern soph Jailya Ash blazes a PR 11.96 win in the SJ Group 4 100-meter dash!!!!!!

Eastern sophomore Jailya Ash blazed a personal-best 11.96 to win the 100-meter dash Friday night at South Jersey Group 4 sectionals at Washington Township.

Ash, the indoor Meet of Champions 55 winner, lowered her PR from 11.99 at the Camden County Championships and remained unbeaten this year in the 100.

Ash’s time is No. 21 in South Jersey history and No. 2 in Eastern history, behind of course Olympic gold medalist English Gardner, who ran 11.49 in 2008.

The only girls in meet history to run faster than Ash are Williamstown’s Bria Mack, who won in 2016 in 11.68 and in both 2015 and 2017 in 11.95, and Gardner, who won in 2007 in 11.74 and 2008 in 11.78. Kim Hargrove of Willingboro (1996) and Beth Kalwinsky of Toms River North (1997) ran hand-timed 11.8, but a fully automatic 11.96 is intrinsically faster.

Ash is the sixth girl from Eastern to win the South Jersey Group 4 100 since 2002. Bethany Wright won it in 2002, Jennifer Jackson in 2003 and Gardner in 2007, 2008 and 2010.

Curtis Thompson, Chris Mirabelli, Cade Antonucci all advance to NCAA javelin finals out of East Preliminary round!!!!!!

South Jersey dominated the NCAA Division 1 East Preliminary javelin competition Friday in Jacksonville, with Florence graduate Curtis Thompson, Holy Cross graduate Chris Mirabelli and Holy Spirit’s Cade Antonucci all advancing to the finals next month in Jacksonville.

Three of the 12 qualifiers from the entire eastern half of the United States are South Jersey natives.

Thompson, the former U.S. and NCAA champion, placed third with a throw of 241-3 on his third and final attempt, behind teammates Anderson Peters (262-8) and Tyriq Horsford (PR 258-5).

Mirabelli finished ninth with a 219-5, also on his final attempt, and Antonucci took 11th with a 217-3 on his second throw.

The top 12 throwers advanced to the NCAA Championships in Austin June 5-8. The javelin final, which will also include the top 12 throwers from the West Prelims in Sacramento, is scheduled for 6:45 p.m. on June 5.

Nick Mirabelli, a Texas A&M freshman out of Rancocas Valley and Chris Mirabelli’s younger brother, was getting ready to throw in the third and final flight in Sacramento. Both javelin competitions begin at noon, but since Sacramento is three hours behind Jacksonville it started three hours later.
