Egg Harbor’s Lauren Princz wins freshman 100 at New Balance Nationals, enters all-time South Jersey top 10

Egg Harbor’s Lauren Princz moved into the all-time South Jersey top-10 in the 100-meter dash Friday when she won the freshman race at the New Balance Nationals at Aggie Stadium on the North Carolina A&T campus in Greensboro, N.C.

Princz lowered her PR from 11.94 to 11.81, which is tied for 10th in South Jersey history and puts her in the top 25 in state history. She’s already No. 4 in South Jersey in the 200 with her 23.90 at the Meet of Champions.

It’s the fastest time by a New Jersey freshman since Myasia Jacobs of Paramus Catholic ran 11.72 in 2009 and fastest by a South Jersey freshman since Olympic gold medalist English Gardner ran 11.62 in 2007.

The only other New Jersey freshman to run faster in the last 20 years was Ogechi Nweaneri of Columbia, who ran 11.65 in 2005.

Princz, the Meet of Champions 200 winner last weekend, won by 1-100th of a second over Trinity Rossum of Buford High in Georgia. She is the daughter of former Eagles cornerback and return specialist Allen Rossum.

Princz and Rossum both went under the meet record of 11.84 set in 2013 by Sekayi Bracey of East Kentwood in Michigan.

Princz is also scheduled to run the championship 200 and race on EHT’s 400- and 800-meter relay teams this weekend.
