Deptford runs 41.71 in 4×1, matches Salem for #1 in NJ this year, earns top seed in Meet of Champions!!!!!

The Deptford boys won the state Group 3 400-meter relay title and in the process established themselves as favorites for the Meet of Champions.

Deptford ran 41.71, matching Salem for the top time in New Jersey this year and moving into a tie for the No. 11 spot in South Jersey history.

Sophomores Khion Smith and Tyriq Bundy and seniors Jaythan Vereen and Mar-Quel Davis, a medalist in the 100, ran for Deptford, which lowered its own Gloucester County record of 41.89 set in April at the Penn Relays.

Six other schools ran sub-42.8 at the various state meets, led by Perth Amboy (41.96), Neptune (42.05), Pennsauken (42.07) and Rancocas Valley (42.12). Franklin Township (42.25) and Salem (42.55) were next-fastest.

Deptford’s time is No. 11 in South Jersey history but No. 16 in state history, which tells you how much South Jersey has dominated the race over the years.
