Eastern, Millville girls break into all-time S.J. top-5 in shuttle hurdles at state relays!!!!!!!!!

The Eastern and Millville girls ran the third- and fourth-fastest shuttle hurdles times in South Jersey history Wednesday in a 1-2 finish in the Group 4 race at the state relays.

Eastern won the race in 31.58, and Millville was second in 31.93. Eastern ran under the Group 4 meet record of 31.6 hand-timed, set by Plainfield in 1986 and ran less than half a second off the overall state relays record of 30.74 set by Winslow in the Group 3 meet in 2014.

Juniors Noelle Scott and Abigail Brocco opened up for Eastern, followed by sophomore Jailya Ash and junior Jewel Ash.

For Millville, senior Malea Broome, freshman Bryanna Craig, senior Brionah Patterson and freshman Leah Ellis ran.

Eastern’s time is No. 17 in state history and Millville is No. 21. The times are also No. 1 and No. 2 on the MileSplit U.S. 2019 list, although very few states run the shuttle hurdles indoors before nationals.

Millville’s time broke the Cumberland County record of 32.05 set by Millville a few weeks ago at the Merli Invitational on the same track.

Millville won the Group 4 team title by 20 points — 48-28 over Ridge. It was Millville’s first state relays team title and the first ever by a Cumberland County school, although both Bridgeton (1994, 1997) and Vineland (2004) have won boys state relays titles.

More on Bridgeton’s title coming soon!
