Rancocas Valley girls run N.J. #2 in the 400-meter relay at Penn and advance to regional championship races!!!!!

The Rancocas Valley girls on Thursday blazed the second-fastest 400-meter relay time by a New Jersey school this year at the 124th annual Penn Relays at Franklin Field.

R.V. ran a 2018 South Jersey #1 48.06 to win its heat and advance to two featured regional championship races later in the weekend at Penn. The time is No. 24 in South Jersey history, No. 8 in Burlington County history and No. 2 in the state this year.

But the Red Devils will have two more chances to run faster. They qualified for the Northeast Championship race at 2:20 p.m. Friday and the Tri-State Championship race at 1:40 p.m. Saturday.

Sophomores Breacain McClenahan and Kristina Tossas, junior Darynn Minus-Vincent and senior Aliyah Taylor ran for the Red Devils, improving on their previous season-best of 48.67 from the Woodbury Relays last weekend.

The only faster time by a New Jersey school this year is Union Catholic’s 47.42, also at Penn on Thursday.

R.V.’s 48.06 ranks 21st of 637 schools that ran the 400-meter relay Thursday. Of the 20 schools that ran faster, 12 are from Jamaica, one from the Bahamas and five from various states in the U.S. (one each from Virginia, California, Maryland, New York and Nevada) and one each from Washington, D.C., and North Jersey (Union Catholic).

The Egg Harbor girls ran 48.28 and the Winslow girls 48.33 and both also reached the Northeast and Tri-State races.
