Another title for Willingboro track! That’s … how many?????

Future Olympic gold medalist Lamont Smith celebrates one of his numerous titles.

With Willingboro coming out on top in the Central Jersey Group 1 boys sectional meet on Saturday, it’s a good time to take a look at exactly how accomplished this program has been over the years.

The history of Willingboro track is simply unbelievable.

Let’s take a look at every state or sectional indoor and outdoor championship this remarkable program has produced over the past 38 years, including the state relays, indoor and outdoor sectionals and indoor and outdoor states.

They’re all South Jersey titles, except where indicated. And don’t forget, until the late 1980s, Willingboro shared students with Kennedy High, which won a bunch of titles of its own.

By my count, the Willingboro track program has produced 82 team championships in state competition! And that’s on top of all the county and conference titles, individual records, champions and Olympians, Easterns and nationals winners, etc.

Here’s the full list!
