EHT freshman Lauren Princz leads Winslow’s Dancy, Wilson’s Page to astounding 1-2-3 sub-24 finish in historic M-of-C 200-meter dash!!!!!

Egg Harbor Township freshman Lauren Princz led three South Jersey sprinters to a astonishing 1-2-3 sub-24 finish in the fastest 200-meter dash in New Jersey track history!!!!!

Princz ran a personal-best 23.90, Winslow Township senior Shakira Dancy ran a near-PR 23.92 and Woodrow Wilson junior Denneesha Page took third in a huge personal-best 23.99.

All three sprinters are now among the five-fastest in the 200 in South Jersey history. Dancy is No. 3 at 23.85 from last year’s sectionals, Princz is No. 4 and Page is No. 5.

Princz’s time is sixth-fastest in meet history, Dancy’s is seventh-fastest and Page’s is 11th-fastest. Dancy ran the fastest second-place time in meet history and Page the fastest third-place time ever.

Their times are No. 1, No. 2 and No. 4 in meet history by South Jersey girls. They rank No. 7, 9 and 16 in state history!!!!!

Princz lowered her PR from 24.04, and Page lowered hers all the way from 24.55.

Dancy won the M-of-C 200 in 2016 and 2017 but ran faster this year placing second than in either of her victories [24.28 in 2016, 24.14 in 2017].

Princz’s time breaks her own Atlantic County record. Dancy and Page are No. 1 and 2 in Camden County history.

She’s also the first Egg Harbor girl ever to win a Meet of Champions title. Earlier Saturday, Princz led EHT to second place in the 400-meter relay.

Princz is also the first Atlantic County girl to win a Meet of Champions title since 2006, when Olympic gold medalist Nia Ali of Pleasantville won the 100-meter hurdles and Kim Warren of Atlantic City won the discus.
