Burlington Twp. freshman Sheriyah Nutt records TWO massive PRs to win CJ-3 100-meter dash title!!!!!

Burlington Township freshman Sheriyah Nutt registered two massive PRs and won the 100-meter dash Friday at the Central Jersey Group 3 sectional meet at Jackson Liberty.

Nutt arrived at sectionals Friday with a 100 PR of 12.63 from the BCSL Liberty Division meet earlier this month.

But she ran 12.45 to lead all qualifiers into the final, where she ran 12.21 and finished two meters ahead of second-place Emma Faivre of West Windsor.

Her time is fastest this year by a New Jersey freshman. Egg Harbor’s Lauren Princz has run 12.27.

Nutt’s time virtually ties the Burlington Township school record of 12.0 hand-timed by Tina Johnson in 1995. Her time is No. 11 in Burlington County history, just 2-100ths out of the top 10.

She’s the first Burlington Township girl ever to win an individual sectional title as a freshman, although Township did have two freshmen — Rachel Palacio and Janine Jones — on a 1,600-meter relay team that won the 1995 South Jersey Group 1 sectional title. Charmelle Brooks and Johnson were also on that team.
