Sterling’s Jah’mere Beasley blazes 4th-fastest 200 in South Jersey history at Meet of Champions!!!!

Sterling senior Jahmir Beasley ran the fourth-fastest 200 in South Jersey history Saturday, lowering his PR from 21.50 to 21.30 with his fourth-place finish at the Meet of Champions.

Beasley ran his 21.50 at the Camden County Championships and he was close to that with a 21.56 at the state Group 2 meet, where he placed second to North Plainfield’s Daniel Duncan, who ran 21.35.

The 200 Saturday was the fastest in the 51-year history of the Meet of Champions, with Franklin’s Mario Heslop winning in 20.74, Dana Ridley of Hamilton North second in 21.03 and Richie Luzzi-Liggins of St. Peter’s Prep in Jersey City third in 21.17.

Beasley’s 21.30 is the 14th-fastest FAT time in meet history and by far the fastest fourth-place time ever recorded at a Meet of Champions. The previous fastest was a 21.45 by Chris Charles of Park Ridge in 2000.

His time is fastest enough to win 23 of the last 31 Meet of Champions 200’s and it was also fast enough to get him into the Championship 200-meter dash at the New Balance Nationals, which start tomorrow in Greensboro.
