EHT’s Brock becomes fastest South Jersey quarter-miler in 15 YEARS with 2nd-place in hot race at Easterns!!!!!

Amir Brock moved into the No. 3 spot in South Jersey history on the all-time indoor 400-meter dash list with a monster race at Easterns Tuesday night.

The Egg Harbor Township senior ran an absolute PR 48.48, placing second to East Orange senior Cory Poole, who ran 47.82.

Brock’s time is No. 14 in the U.S. this winter.

Brock’s previous indoor PR was 49.19, when he was second to Haddonfield sophomore Luke Colehower’s 49.17 in the Meet of Champions last weekend. Brock has run as fast as 48.49 outdoors. He did that placing fourth at Group 4 states last spring.

In South Jersey history, only Camden’s Jade Smith (48.27 in 2002) and Lenape’s Mohammad Kanu (48.36 in 2000) have run faster than Brock indoors.

It appears Brock’s time is fastest ever indoors or outdoors by an Atlantic County 400 runner. Mike Patterson of Pleasantville ran 48.05 in the spring of 1997.

Here’s the all-time South Jersey indoor performance list:
