OMG Winslow girls destroy South Jersey 4-by-200 record in TRIALS at nationals!!!

Winslow Township seniors Flora Ahiarakwe and Shakira Dance and sophomores Janeya Hammond and Nylah Perry ran 1:39.58 in the trials of the 800-meter relay at the National Scholastic Indoors at the 168th Street Armory on Saturday, shattering their own South Jersey record.

Winslow recorded the fourth-fastest qualifying time for Sunday’s 800-meter relay finals and broke the South Jersey record of 1:39.75 that the same four girls set a few weeks ago on the same Manhattan track at Easterns.

The six-team championship race is scheduled for 12:55 p.m. on Sunday.

Also qualifying for the final are Bullis High of Potomac, Md. [1:36.69]; Nansemond River of Suffolk, Va. [1:37.81]; Western Branch of Chesapeake, Va. [1:37.91]; Southeast of Raleigh, N.C. [1:40.17]; and C.D. Hylton of Woodbridge, Va. [1:41.31].

With its race Saturday, Winslow moved up from fifth to fourth on the all-time New Jersey list. Winslow is the only South Jersey school to break 1:40 indoor and they’ve now done it three times — 1:39.94 at trials at nationals last year and the two performances this year.
