Eastern girls record one of the greatest relay triples in state history … on Day 1 of track season!!!!!

The Eastern girls put together one of the greatest relay triples in state history Saturday, and they did it on the first Saturday of the track season!

Eastern ran 59.52 in the shuttle hurdles, 1:40.46 in the 800-meter relay and 48.88 in the 400-meter relay at the Don Danser Relays at Lenape.

And that’s without English Gardner!!!

WOW!!!

Sophomore Jailya Ash and junior Jewel Ash ran on all three teams, with Analiese Bulgin on the shuttles team and the 4-by-100, Olivia Covington and Noelle Scott on the 4-by-2 and Dariyah Corbett-Collier also on the 4-by-1.

All three times are — by far — fastest in the state so far this year. But they’re much more than that!

Let’s start with the shuttle hurdles.

Eastern’s time is No. 6 in state history and No. 2 in South Jersey, behind only Edgewood’s 59.00 from the 1999 East Coast Relays in Morristown. That 59.00 at the time was a national record and was produced by Yvette Murray, Kierra Clemons, Pamela Richardson and Dennean Davis.

The 1:40.46 is No. 5 in South Jersey and inside the all-time New Jersey top-20 at No. 19, which is incredible enough at the end of the season. But the first weekend of April? It’s unheard of. It isn’t a school record, though. The 2003 Eastern team ran 1:39.21.

Eastern’s 4-by-100 doesn’t make the all-time South Jersey top-20 list but it’s not too far off. Eastern set the South Jersey record of 46.87 in 2003.

Eastern also won the DMR with Lauren Kenselaar, Teghan Sydnor, Kayla James and Kylie Dawson running 13:07.29 and the 4-by-800 in 10:22.00 with Kenselaar, James, Sierra Feeney and Kierstin Clem.
