Rancocas Valley blasts #9 U.S. Sprint Medley!!!!!!

This is a nice way to start out the new year.

Rancocas Valley, unchallenged, ran the fourth-fastest sprint medley in the U.S. at the SJTCA Large-School meet at the Toms River Bubble, with Robert Hawkins, Tyler Pohl, Samuel Keleekai and Isaiah Curbello clocking 3:39.54.

That time is No. 9 in the U.S. this year, which is amazing considering it was accomplished on a flat track with nobody pushing the Red Devils.

The only faster time by a New Jersey school this year is Union Catholic’s 3:38.81 at the Marine Corps Holiday Classic just after Christmas on the banked track at the Armory in New York.

Hawkins led off with a 52.9 split for 400 meters, and Pohl and Keleekai ran 23.8 and 23.9 for their 200-meter laps, setting up a 1:58.9 anchor from Curbelo, the state indoor Group 4 champ at 800 meters last year.

R.V. won by 65 meters over Kingsway.

School indoor record for Rancocas Valley is a 3:35.86 at the Armory last January at the New Balance Games.
