Willingboro boys ride huge field event performance to win 5th straight sectional championship!!!!!

The Willingboro boys won their fifth straight sectional title and seventh in the last nine years Saturday, outscoring second-place New Providence by a whopping 22 points in the Central Jersey Group 1 meet at the Bennett Center.

The Chimeras out-distanced New Providence 70-48 for their third straight Central Jersey Group 1 title after winning Central Jersey Group 2 in 2011 and 2012, Central Jersey Group 1 in 2015 and South Jersey Group 2 in 2016.

Only Rahway (8) and Morris Hills (7) have won more indoor sectional titles since the meet was introduced in 2008.

Boro scored huge points in the field events, netting 44 of their 70 points in the shot, high jump and pole vault.

Juniors Kameron Smith and Nate Robertson both cleared 6-0 for 18 big points in the high jump, and juniors Jason Dingle (12-0) and Dontavis Wilson (10-6) went 2-3 in the pole vault for 14 more points.

In the shot, sophomore Deonte Allen (42-5 3/4) and senior Emmanuel Lewis III (42-0) and Nyle Thompson (40-10) added 12 points.

Senior Jayaire King won the 400 in 51.39, placed third in the high hurdles in 7.74 and ran on Willingboro’s fourth-place 1,600-meter relay team.

The Chimeras also got points from junior Zaire Clement (fifth in 55 in 6.86) and senior Kevin Peterson (fourth in hurdles in 7.87).
