Pleasantville junior Quentin Bundy ran 55.84 to win the 400-meter intermediate hurdles and 1:56.25 to win the 800 at the Cape-Atlantic League Championships this weekend at Bridgeton.
Bundy is the first Cape-Atlantic athlete to run sub-56 for the intermediates and sub-1:57 for the 800 since Oakcrest’s Ishmael Muhammad, now at Villanova, back in 2014.
Bundy PR’d in the intermediates, breaking his previous PR of 56.38 just a week earlier in the Atlantic County meet. He ran very close to his 800 PR of 1:56.10, also from the county meet.
The 800 time is No. 2 in South Jersey this year, behind a 1:55.13 turned in by Haddonfield’s Derek Gess at the South Jersey Invitational. The 400IH time is also No. 2 in South Jersey behind county and conference rival Sincere Rhea of St. Augustine, who edged Bundy in the Atlantic County meet with a PR 55.63.
Bundy will race this weekend in the South Jersey Group 2 championships at Delsea.
