C.H. East’s Kervins Mezilus trims a second off his 400 hurdles PR in fast Olympic Conference meet win!!!

Cherry Hill East junior Kervins Mezilus out-raced New Jersey’s top-ranked intermediate hurdler Wednesday, running a huge personal-best 54.45 at the Olympic Conference Championships at Washington Township.

Mezilus lowered his 400-meter intermediate hurdles PR from 55.52 from last year’s state meet by 1.07 seconds.

South Jersey’s fastest intermediate hurdler this year is Winslow Township senior Jamil Adams, who ran 53.51 at the Penn Relays. He was second to Mezilus Wednesday with a 54.90.

Mezilus’s time is fastest at the Olympic Conference meet since Mike Williams of Lenape ran 54.09 in 2013, and he’s Cherry Hill East’s second winner, following Alex Reber, who ran 52.92 in 2012.
