Tarantino places 3rd in 200 at National Scholastic Championships with wind-legal #6 time in STATE HISTORY!!!!!

Paul VI senior Antonio Tarantino wrapped up his brilliant scholastic career with a third-place and huge wind-legal PR of 21.07 at the New Balance Nationals at Aggie Stadium on the North Carolina A&T campus in Greensboro, N.C.

Tarantino, who ran a wind-aided 20.51 in the trials, lowered his legal PR from 21.21 to 21.07 and missed the South Jersey record of 21.06, set in 1983 by Olympic gold medalist Dennis Mitchell of Edgewood, by 1-100th of a second.

His time is No. 6 in state history and No. 2 in South Jersey history.

Tarantino, who will enter Rutgers in the fall, finished third behind Okheme Moore of Hillcrest High in Tuscaloosa, Ala., who ran 20.78, and Cameron Council of Northwood High in Pittsboro, N.C., who ran 20.99.

Moore, who also won the 100 with a 10.37, had a previous 200 PR of 21.19. Council raced within 1-100th of a second of his PR of 20.98.
