Wilson senior Denisha Page PRs at 55 meters, equals NJ#1 and wins 2nd straight state title!!!!!

Woodrow Wilson senior Denisha Page joined Lauren Princz atop the New Jersey 55-meter dash leader board Saturday when she won the Group 2 state title.

Princz won the Marine Corps Holiday Classic 55 in 7.12 and Page matched that with her PR of 7.12 on Saturday at the Bennett Center in Toms River.

Page’s previous PR was 7.16 in the trials at Eastern’s last year and her season-best this year was a 7.20 in the prelims at sectionals before a 7.19 in the trials at states.

Most impressive is the Page ran 7.12 unpushed. She won by three meters over Lily Orr of Rumson-Fair Haven, who was second in 7.41.

Page moved into the all-time South Jersey top-20 with her performance Saturday and remained undefeated in the dash this winter.

Most importantly, she won her second state title in a row and placed herself among the favorites for the Meet of Champions next weekend.

Page placed second in the Meet of Champs last spring in the 100 and third in the 200.
