Deptford boys win Meet of Champions 4×1 with #9 time in state history!!!!!

Juniors Javon Sanders, Tyriq Bundy and Khion Smith and senior James Bettis ran the ninth-fastest 400-meter relay in New Jersey history Saturday and Deptford nearly broke the meet record in winning at the 40th annual Meet of Champions at  Northern Burlington.

Deptford’s time breaks the Gloucester County record of 41.55 that Deptford set last year. It’s No. 9 in state history and No. 6 in South Jersey history. It’s also second-fastest in Meet of Champions history, behind only Timber Creek’s 41.45 from 2014.

No. 2 seed Bridgeton, which beat Deptford at sectionals and was a close second at states, didn’t finish the race. St. Peter’s Prep was second in 42.00.
