EHT’s Lauren Princz runs smoking hot 200, destroys S.J. freshman class record and adds TWO Atlantic County records!!!

Egg Harbor freshman Lauren Princz became the fastest freshman in the 200-meter dash in South Jersey history this weekend and just missed the state freshman class record.

Princz won the state Group 4 200-meter dash title with a personal-best 24.00 on the Franklin Township track, eclipsing the South Jersey freshman mark of 24.04 set by English Gardner of Eastern – now an Olympic gold medalist – when she won the 2007 state Group 4 title at Egg Harbor.

She missed the state freshman record of 23.99 by 1-100th of a second. That mark was set by Paramus Catholic’s Myasia Jacobs at the 2009 Meet of Champions at South Plainfield.

Princz’s previous 200 PR was a 24.34 when she won the Cape-Atlantic meet at Bridgeton.

She also PR’d this past weekend in the 100 with a 12.03 for second behind Phillipsburg junior Sydney Hawkins’ 11.79. That also broke the Atlantic County record, which 12.10, set in 2008 by Nijgia Snapp of Oakcrest at the 2008 Cape-Atlantic meet. The Cape-Atlantic record is 11.78, set by Shameka Speed of Bridgeton at the 2003 Meet of Champions at South Plainfield.

She also teamed up with junior Jadyn Laramore and seniors Viana Magruder and Ajae Alvarez-Tyler to win the 4-by-100 in 47.45. More on that race here.

Princz moved into the No. 15 mark in state history and No. 4 in South Jersey history. She broke the Atlantic County and Cape-Atlantic Conference record of 24.12 set by another Olympic gold medalist, Pleasantville graduate Nia Ali at the 2006 South Jersey Group 2 meet at Buena.
