Williamstown’s Bria Mack cements her status as an all-time N.J. great with repeat M-of-C 100-Meter Dash title!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bria Mack became only the second South Jersey girl ever to win back-to-back Meet of Champions 100-meter dashes when she ran 11.77 into a significant headwind Saturday to win the M-of-C 100 final at Northern Burlington Regional in Mansfield Township.

In the trials, with only a 0.8 headwind in her heat, Mack ran 11.60, only 2-100ths of a second off her PR of 11.58 (No. 7 in state history) and the fifth-fastest time in meet history. The final was run into a 2.5 meters-per-second headwind but she still ran 11.77, making her only the third girl in meet history to run sub-11.80 fully automatic twice at the M-of-C.

Mack won last year with an 11.87 after an 11.82 in the trials. The only other South Jersey girl to win twice in a row is Olympic gold medalist English Gardner of Eastern in 2007 and 2008.

Williamstown’s Shakira Dancy, who won the 200, placed second in 12.16. Mack’s margin of victory — 39-100ths of a second — is the largest since 2011, when Myasia Jacobs won in 11.47 and Julia Rizzo of Montville was second in 12.12.
