Sterling runs 20-second season-best 12:10 DMR at nationals and enters all-time S.J. Top 10!!!!

The Coppolino twins along with Aliya Harrison and Leyna Jewell teamed up to give Sterling a terrific 12:10 DMR and third place in the Emerging Elite race at the New Balance Nationals in Greensboro, N.C.

Sydney Coppolino led off with a 3:38.1 for 1,200 meters, with Harrison speeding a 56.7 for the 400, Jewell clocking 2:28.0 for the 800 and Madison Coppolino anchoring in 5:08.2.

The Coppolino’s and Harrison are sophomores, and Jewell is a freshman.

Sterling’s school record was 12:31.02 from this year’s Woodbury Relays. Their fastest before this year was a 12:34.50 at last year’s Rowan Invite.

It adds up to 12:10.75, which is not only a school record by more than 20 seconds, it’s No. 10 on the all-time South Jersey outdoor girls distance medley list.

The time is No. 2 in New Jersey this year, behind only Southern Regional’s 12:00.32 at the Penn Relays, and No. 1 in South Jersey. This was a down year for the DMR in South Jersey, and Sterling’s 12:31 was actually the No. 1 time in South Jersey before the 12:10.

Let’s go to the record books. Here’s every outdoor South Jersey DMR under 12:15. Sterling is now No. 10 on the all-time outdoor list:

But since indoors generally provides more fast girls DMR times than outdoors, we also maintain an overall girls DMR list. As you can see, seven of the nine-fastest times were recorded indoors.

11:43.94i … Haddonfield, 2014, New Balance Indoors
11:53.15 … Lenape 2012 New Balance Outdoors

Interesting that Haddonfield is the only Camden County school and the only Colonial Conference school that’s ever run faster than Sterling. And even though Sterling is No. 14 on the all-time overall list, only three schools have ever run faster — Haddonfield, Lenape and Ocean City.
