Cinnaminson junior Meredith Updike wins 2nd straight state Group 2 in 400 intermediates with huge PR!!!!!!

Meredith Updike won her second straight state title in the 400-meter intermediates Friday with a big personal-best 1:01.48 at Central Regional.

That time is No. 6 in Burlington County history.

Her previous PR was 1:02.66 from sectionals last weekend, so this is more than a one-second PR for Updike.

She’s the first girl to win the state Group 2 intermediate hurdles in consecutive years in at least 20 years. Still looking that one up.

She’s also the first CInnaminson girl ever to win a state title two straight years. And she’ll have a chance to make it three next year.

Updike, a Cinnaminson junior, won last year in 1:02.71, moves up to No. 26 in South Jersey history.

Updike won the state title on her 18th birthday.
