Wood’s 1:53 anchor leads Rancocas Valley to S.J.#1 sprint medley time at East Coast Relays!!!!!

Micah Wood’s 1:53.9 anchor leg on Monday led Rancocas Valley to the fastest sprint medley performance by a South Jersey school this year.

R.V. placed second to Hopewell Valley at the 48th annual East Coast Relays in Randolph, the Red Devils clocking 3:30.69 to HoVal’s state-leading 3:28.40 with Meet of Champions 800 runner-up Sean Dolan splitting 1:51.7.

This is the third straight year R.V. has placed first or second in the ECR sprint med but the Red Devils ran faster Monday than they did winning the race in 2017 or 2018.

Sophomore Tre Boyd led off with a 51.4 split for R.V., and senior Tai Matlock and sophomore James McGhee ran the 200s.

The time is No. 10 in Burlington County history, and it’s the fastest second-place time at the East Coast Relays since 2012, when Linden ran 3:29.71 for second behind St. Benedict’s 3:28.10 (with Edward Cheserek anchoring).

It’s also the fastest any South Jersey school has run at the East Coast Relays since 2002, when Vineland won the race in 3:30.33 at Morristown.
