Burlington Twp.’s Walker continues hot hurdling at Monmouth

step0001-41Jalen Walker is picking up right where he left off last winter with some hot hurdling for the Monmouth Hawks track team.

Walker, a state champion in the 110 highs in 2010 running for Rick Craft at Burlington Township while attending Westampton Tech, won the 60-meter highs at the Lehigh Angry Birds Invitational at Rauch Fieldhouse in Bethlehem, Pa., over the weekend with a season-best 8.10.

Walker led a 1-2-3-4 Monmouth sweep on the way to the team title.

Walker actually owns the five-fastest times in Monmouth history – you can check out the entire Monmouth record book, which is loaded with South Jersey alums, here.

Walker’s only loss so far this year was to teammate Geordan Ferguson at the Rutgers Invitational, where Ferguson ran 8.14 and Walker finished 2-100ths of a second back.

Walker has already qualified for the IC4As and is the top hurdler in the MAAC. He’s already won conference titles both indoors and outdoors.

This year’s MAAC championships are Feb. 21 at the 168th Street Armory in New York.
