Cinnaminson’s Meredith Updike moves into all-time Burlco top-10 in high hurdles!!!!!

Cinnaminson junior Meredith Updike broke her own school record and moved into the all-time Burlington County top-10 in the 55-meter high hurdles Saturday, running 8.46 for second place at the Ocean Breeze Holiday Festival in Staten Island.

Upike had set the record of 8.62 in the trials. She held the previous mark at 8.75 from a meet at the Bennett Center last month.

Her time is No. 9 in Burlington County history but only 2-100ths of a second out of the No. 6 spot.

It’s also No. 3 in South Jersey this year, behind only Tionna Tobias of Winslow [8.26] and Claudine Smith of Atlantic City [8.29]. It’s also  going to land somewhere in the top 10 in New Jersey this winter, pending other meets being held this weekend.
