Williamstown blazes to N.J. #1 1:27.92 at Woodbury!!!!!

What a 4-by-200 performance by Williamstown Saturday at Woodbury!

The team of Michael Choates, Jean-Paul Roane, Raekwon Martin and Cameron Dobbins ran the No. 1 time in New Jersey this year, shattered the Woodbury Relays all-groups record and broke the Gloucester County record with a time of 1:27.92.

The Braves edged Rancocas Valley, the alma mater of Williamstown coach Dwayne Dobbins, who ran 1:28.23.

They are the two-fastset 4-by-200 times in Woodbury Relays history.

The previous meet record was a shared 1:28.35 by Timber Creek in Group 3 in 2014 and 1:28.2 hand-timed by Winslow Township in 2008.

The previous Gloucester County record was Delsea’s 1:28.62 at the 2010 Carl Lewis Invitational in Willingboro.

Williamstown’s time is No. 13 in South Jersey history, and R.V’s second-place time is No. 16 in South Jersey history.
