Our Lady of Mercy grad Iyanla Kollock races into all-time #7 spot in 60 meters in Rutgers history!!!!!

Freshman Iyanla Kollock sprinted herself into the Rutgers University record book Sunday in her first ECAC championships.

Kollock, a graduate of Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Franklin Township, Gloucester County, placed fourth in the 60-meter dash final in 7.59, seventh-fastest time in Rutgers history and fastest ever by a freshman.

Kollock went into ECAC’s at Boston College with a PR of 7.62 from the trials of the Big 10 Championships in Ann Arbor, Mich., last weekend. After a 7.65 in the trials made her the No. 7 seed going into the finals, she ran 7.59 to finish fourth and just 7-100ths of a second behind winner Kaitlin Salisbury, a Bucknell junior out of Hawthorne Christian.

Look at how Kollock’s PR has dropped this year:
7.83 … Jan. 12 [TCNJ Invite trials]
7.78 … Jan. 12 [TCNJ finals]
7.77 … Jan. 25 [John Thomas Classic trials]
7.75 … Jan. 31 [Mets trials]
7.69 … Jan. 31 [Mets finals]
7.62 … Feb. 22 [Big Ten trials]
7.59 … March 3 [ECAC]

Here’s the fastest times in Rutgers history (four of the top eight are from South Jersey sprinters!)
7.34 … Gabrielle Farquharson [Williamstown], 2016
7.41 … Shameka Marshall [Oakcrest], 2006
