Dennisha Page runs #3 indoor 200 in South Jersey history at New Balance!!!!!

step0001Dennisha Page keeps getting faster!

The Woodrow Wilson senior ran the No. 3 time in South Jersey history in the indoor 200 Friday night at the 168th Street Armory.

Page placed second in the emerging elite division at the New Balance Nationals, lowering her PR from 24.57 to 24.42. She finished second to Makhia Jarrett of Salem High in Virginia Beach, Va.

Page’s previous PR of 24.57 came on the same track in the trials at Easterns last month. The only girls in South Jersey history who’ve run faster are two Winslow Township sprinters – Krystal Cantey in 2006 and Shakira Dancy two years ago.

Page’s 24.42 is also fastest by a New Jersey girl who runs for her high school. Athing Mu of Trenton, the U.S. senior champ in the 600, ran 24.11 at an open meet at the Armory in January. She attends Trenton High, where she’s an honors student, but she races unattached.
