Kayla Martin anchors Seneca to SJ all-time #11 4-x-8 at Varsity Classic

The Seneca girls shattered their own school record and ran the 11th-fastest 3,200-meter relay time in South Jersey history Monday at the Varsity Classic at the 168th Street in New York.

The team of Joey Webb, Kayla Hay, Sydney Warner and Kayla Martin ran a hand-timed 9:31.1, finishing second to Ridge’s 9:26.5.

The times are No. 2 and 3 in New Jersey this year, behind Union Catholic’s 9:17.00 in December at the Armory.

Seneca’s time is No. 1 by a South Jersey school this year and No. 22 nationally according to the Milesplit.com rankings. It’s a likely Penn Relays qualifier and should also get Seneca into the indoor nationals.

Seneca’s previous school record was a 9:32.95 at the 2008 National Scholastic Championships, also at the Armory.

Webb led off with a 2:26, Hay split 2:25, Warner 2:21 and Martin, coming off a double win at sectionals, anchored in 2:18.

  • 9:04.66 … Lenape, 2013
