Flurry of PR’s carries Egg Harbor boys to 6th indoor sectional title in the last 8 years!!!!!

Trey Henry, Anthony Vasquez, Ruben Momodu and Joshua Cohen all won their events, and all but Vasquez PR’d, to lead Egg Harbor to its sixth sectional title in the last eight years.

Egg Harbor outscored Cherokee 47-42 Saturday to win the South Jersey Group 4 meet at the Bennett Center.

Henry won the 55-meter dash in 6.62, reducing his PR from 6.68 from the trials at Eastern’s last year. Vasquez won the 55-meter hurdles in 7.81. Momodu cleared 6-2 in the high jump for the first time. And Cohen cleared 14-1 in the pole vault, an inch higher than his previous PR.

Those four wins accounted for 40 of EHT’s 47 points, but the Eagles also got points from Ryan Lagroteria, who cleared a PR 12-6 for fourth in the pole vault; Gobi Thurairajah, who took sixth in the 800 in 2:01.83; and the 4-by-4 team, which was fifth in 3:34.16.

Here’s a look at the S.J. Group 4 team winners since the inception of the indoor sectionals in 2008:

2008: Toms River East
2009: Washington Twp.
2010: Toms River North
2011: Washington Twp.
2012: Egg Harbor
2013: Egg Harbor
2014: Lenape
2015: Egg Harbor
2016: Egg Harbor
2017: Trenton
2018: Egg Harbor
2019: Egg Harbor

Cohen’s 14-1 clearance is best by an Atlantic County pole vaulter indoors in 27 years, since Brandon Kurtz went 14-6 1/4 in 1991. It’s No. 2 all-time on the Atlantic County indoor list.
