Senior Te’seanna Harris, the state 100-meter hurdles champ last spring, doubled the 55-meter dash and 55-meter hurdles to lead Camden to its first indoor sectional title in 10 years.
Harris led a 1-2-3 sweep in the 55-meter dash with a 7.46 win and ran 8.56 to win the hurdles.
Thanks in large part to 24 points in the 55, Camden outscored Willingboro 59-46 to win the Central Jersey Group 1 sectional championship at the Bennett Center in Toms River.
This is Camden’s third indoor sectional title and first since the 2009 team won South Jersey Group 2 in 2009. Camden also won South Jersey Group 3 in 2008.
Harris, freshman Jakarta Nock (7.65) and junior Simone Hopkins (7.82) swept the 55. Hopkins was the key after posting only the sixth-fastest qualifying time.
Nock and sophomore Braniya Mansfield went 3-4 in the 400, Nock running 63.72 and Mansfield 64.11. They also ran on Camden’s third-place 1,600-meter relay team, which ran 4:18.90.
In the shot, sophomore Makiyah Watson (31-4 3/4) and senior Jahmara Smith (31-0) scored 14 big point, placing second and third.
