Winslow girls AGAIN! Lady Eagles run fastest S.J. 4×4 in 12 years, 3:48.08 at Penn!!!!!

The Winslow Township girls finally got pushed in a 4-by-4 and the result was the fastest time by a South Jersey school in a decade!

Winslow ran 3:51.54 to win the South Jersey Large-School 4-by-4 on Thursday and while that wasn’t quite fast enough to reach the Championship of America, it did get the Eagles a lane in the Philadelphia Championship race, where they matched up with two of the area’s fastest 4-by-4’s — Neumann-Goretti of Philadelphia, which ran 3:47.14 in its class race and Penn Wood of Lansdowne, which won its class race in 3:48.61.

All three won by at least eight seconds, so it was no surprise they all ran faster when they hooked up in the same race.

In the Philly Championship Race, Neumann-Goretti won in 3:43.61, Penn Wood took second in 3:45.57, and Winslow ran 3:48.08 to hold off North Penn of Lansdale, which was fourth in 3:48.13. All four anchors ran sub-55. The times rank No. 10, No. 18 and No. 26 in the U.S. this year, according to the MileSplit national database.

Lenape was fifth in 3:54.12, giving South Jersey two of the top finishers. All five ran their fastest times of the year in the race. The Winslow and Lenape times are the fastest in South Jersey this year.

Iyianna Williams led off in 58.01, with Flora Ahiarakwe splitting 57.27, Janeya Hammond 58.05 and Shakira Dancy anchoring in a blazing 54.76!

Winslow’s time is fastest by a South Jersey 4-by-4 quartet in 11 years, since Camden ran 3:47.55 to win the 2006 Meet of Champions.

It broke the Winslow record of 3:49.30, set by the Krystal Cantey-anchored 2004 Winslow team in the same Philadelphia Championship Race 13 years ago.

Winslow’s time is No. 10 in South Jersey history — and it’s a very tough top-10 to get into, thanks to that stretch from 1999 through 2003, when Willingboro ran 3:47.30 or faster five years in a row, and Camden and Eastern also ran 3:47-low or faster.

Interesting to note that the 23 sub-3:50’s in South Jersey history were all recorded by seven schools — Willingboro (eight times), Camden (five times), Winslow Township (three times), Lenape and Woodrow Wilson (twice each) and Penns Grove, Eastern and Washington Township (once each).

Winslow’s time is No. 2 in the state this year, behind Union Catholic’s otherworldly 3:38.92, with Olympian Sydney McLaughlin anchoring in 50.37 — a time only nine college runners have ever surpassed in Penn Relays history (thanks to Jim Lambert for that stat!).

It’s also No. 27 on the all-time state list, which is one heck of an impressive list!
