Sprint team leads Audubon girls to first title ever at Woodbury Relays!!!!!

Junior Lamya Young, freshman Emily McGrath and seniors Sierra Gaines and Bailie Rizzo teamed up to win  the 400- and 800-meter relays, and the Audubon girls sprinted their way to the Woodbury Relays Group 1 title Saturday.

It was the Green Wave’s first Woodbury Relays championship in school history, outscoring second-place Paulsboro 44-34, with Schalick — the three-time defending champion — third with 27 points. Paulsboro hasn’t won since 1995.

Young, McGrath, Gaines and Rizzo won the 400-meter relay in 51.29 and the 800-meter relay in 1:45.80.

Rizzo, Young and McGrath teamed up with sophomore Alivia Stocklin to place second in the sprint medley in 4:27.55, and McGrath joined freshman Sarah Parr, junior Jacqueline Stocklin and senior Rachel Russell to win the shuttle hurdles in 1:11.85.

Audubon also placed second in the 3,200-meter relay, with the team of junior Giavanna Amariles, senior Alesky Kilvington, junior Caitlyn Clarke and freshman Emma Myers running 10:46.96.

 

Audubon’s 1:45.80 is fastest this year by a New Jersey Group 1 school, according to the Milesplit database, and actually fastest since Penns Grove ran 1:43.53 at Woodbury in 2014. The 51.29 is third-fastest by a New Jersey Group 1 school.

Audubon already ranks No. 2 in South Jersey and No. 4 in the state in the SMR with its 4:23.78 from the Jim Camburn Relays earlier this month. The 1:11.85 is No. 2 in South Jersey this year among Group 1 schools in the shuttles, just 1-100th of a second behind Pennsville, which ran 1:11.84 at Woodbury. It’s also No. 3 in the state.

The 3,200-meter relay time is No. 8 in the state this year in Group 1 and No. 3 in South Jersey,.

The 4-by-100 and 4-by-200 times are school records.
