Eastern soph Jailya Ash blazes a PR 11.96 win in the SJ Group 4 100-meter dash!!!!!!

Eastern sophomore Jailya Ash blazed a personal-best 11.96 to win the 100-meter dash Friday night at South Jersey Group 4 sectionals at Washington Township.

Ash, the indoor Meet of Champions 55 winner, lowered her PR from 11.99 at the Camden County Championships and remained unbeaten this year in the 100.

Ash’s time is No. 21 in South Jersey history and No. 2 in Eastern history, behind of course Olympic gold medalist English Gardner, who ran 11.49 in 2008.

The only girls in meet history to run faster than Ash are Williamstown’s Bria Mack, who won in 2016 in 11.68 and in both 2015 and 2017 in 11.95, and Gardner, who won in 2007 in 11.74 and 2008 in 11.78. Kim Hargrove of Willingboro (1996) and Beth Kalwinsky of Toms River North (1997) ran hand-timed 11.8, but a fully automatic 11.96 is intrinsically faster.

Ash is the sixth girl from Eastern to win the South Jersey Group 4 100 since 2002. Bethany Wright won it in 2002, Jennifer Jackson in 2003 and Gardner in 2007, 2008 and 2010.
