RV’s Aliyah Taylor doubles the sprints with two PRs and NJ #1 performances at Lenape Invite!!!!!

Rancocas Valley junior Aliyah Taylor picked up where she left off indoors, with PRs in both the 100- and 200-meter dash at the Lenape Girls Invite on Saturday.

Taylor won the 100 in 11.95 and the 200 in 24.83. The 11.95 is a big PR, breaking her previous lifetime best of 12.08, when she won the Central Jersey Group 3 meet at Northern Burlington last spring. The 24.83 is an outdoor PR, although she ran 24.61 at indoor nationals last month. Her previous best outdoors was 25.40 also from her win at sectionals last year.

Here’s a look at every South Jersey girl that’s run under 12.00 fully automatic. Taylor’s 100 time is No. 14 in South Jersey history:

  • 11.61 … Amandi Rhett [Moorestown], 1999
  • 11.68 … Bria Mack [Williamstown], 2016
  • 11.70 … Assante Johnson [Camden], 2009
  • 11.73 … Torie Robinson [Winslow Twp.], 2014
  • 11.77 … Aisha Morgan [Schalick], 1999
  • 11.78 … Shameka Speed [Bridgeton], 2003
  • 11.81 … Denise Liles [Kingsway], 1984
  • 11.81 … Audrey Wilson [Deptford], 2008
  • 11.82 … Annie Johnson [Shawnee], 2012
  • 11.84 … Robin Taylor [Deptford], 1980
  • 11.85 … Dana Burnett [Williamstown], 1996
  • 11.88 … Denise Mitchell [Edgewood], 1983
  • 11.94 … Emily Carson [Haddonfield], 2013
  • 11.95 … Aliyah Taylor [Rancocas Valley], 2017
  • 11.96 … Jamillah Nock [Woodrow Wilson], 2004
  • 11.98 … Kiara Lester [Deptford], 2016
  • 11.98 … Ciera Ismail [Schalick], 2014

Taylor now ranks No. 1 in New Jersey in both sprints, with Iyanla Kollock of Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Newfield No. 2 in both races, thanks to her second-place finishes in both races behind Taylor at the Lenape meet.

Kollock ran 12.30 and 25.52. Pollock was Meet of Champions runner-up in the 55 indoors at 7.00, 1-100th of a second behind Gloucester County rival Bria Mack of Williamstown. The 12.30 is a PR for Kollock, who ran 12.41 to win Parochial B sectionals last year. Her 200 PR is a 25.32 from sixth in last spring’s Meet of Champions.
