Rancocas Valley girls win East Coast Relays 4-by-200 with N.J. #4 time!!!!!

The Rancocas Valley girls made the long trip from Mount Holly to Randolph to run a hot 800-meter relay at the 48th annual East Coast Relays and wound up winning the race by two seconds with the fastest outdoor time by a Burlington County school in 25 years.

Freshman Anabella Chin, seniors Darynn Minus-Vincent and Brianna Snowden and sophomore Sheriyah Nutt ran 1:41.34, beating second-place Ramapo by 15 meters.

It’s the fastest time anybody has run at the East Coast Relays since Mount Vernon (N.Y.) won the 2010 race in 1:39.77.

R.V.’s time is No. 4 in the state this year and No. 2 in South Jersey, behind only Eastern’s 1:40.46 back in early April at the Don Danser Relays.

It’s second-fastest in Burlington County history outdoors, behind only Willingboro’s 1:41.20 in 1994, although the overall county record is Moorestown’s winning 1:40.77 at Easterns in 2000 at the Armory. It’s also No. 13 in South Jersey history.

Rancocas Valley became the first South Jersey school to win the East Coast Relays 800-meter relay since Willingboro in 2000.

Here’s a list of all the S.J. 4-by-200 winners at the ECR:

1992: Highland, 1:43.0
1993: Camden, 1:43.79
1994: Willingboro, 1:41.51
1995: Camden, 1:41.20
1998: Highland, 1:41.56
1999: Washington Twp., 1:41.10
2000: Willingboro, 1:41.86
2019: Rancocas Valley, 1:41.34

The win was R.V.’s fourth at the East Coast Relays. The Red Devils won the javelin and long jump relays in 2014, and last year’s team won the sprint medley in 4:09.47.
