Rancocas Valley girls pile up meet-record 165 points in winning Burlington County Championship!!!!!

It was freshman Ravin Hood who had the honor of not only winning the discus Saturday at the Burlington County Open but also putting Rancocas Valley over the top in the Red Devils’ chase to break the meet scoring record.

Hood, an R.V. freshman, won the discus with a throw of 110-8, and those 10 points gave Rancocas Valley 165 for meet, which broke the meet record of 162 scored by Lenape in 2015.

Lenape’s coach at the time, Jack Walsh, is now the meet director of the County Open, so he was there to congratulate the R.V. coaches and team on their terrific performance.

Rancocas, the host school, scored in every event other than the 1,600.

Sophomore Sheriyah Nutt had a hand in 38 points, with wins in the 100 (12.34, 12.32 in trials) and 200 (PR 25.36), second in the 400 (58.02) and an anchor leg on R.V.s winning 1,600-meter relay team.

There was no team scoring last year, when most of the meet was cancelled because of rain, but Rancocas Valley has now won two straight county titles — 2017 and 2019 — after never previously winning one.

R.V. won by 109 points over second-place Shawnee, which had its highest place since taking second in 2004.

The 109-point margin of victory is also a meet record. The previous largest scoring margin was was 107 1/2, Lenape’s margin over Seneca in 2015.

Here’s a glance at how R.V. got to 165:
