Winslow, Rancocas Valley girls 800-meter relay teams rewrite South Jersey record book at New Balance Nationals!!!!!

The Winslow and Rancocas Valley girls ran the 4th- and 5th-fastest 800-meter relay times in South Jersey history Saturday morning at the New Balance Nationals.

Winslow ran 1:39.67 and Rancocas Valley 1:40.25 in an insanely deep and fast race at Aggie Stadium in Greensboro, N.C.

The race produced three of the top-20 times in New Jersey history.

Winslow placed 12th and Rancocas Valley 16th in a race that saw 13 schools under 1:40.

Winslow finished first in the third of eight sections, nearly two seconds ahead of the field.

R.V. took second in the sixth of eight sections, finishing behind another New Jersey school, Union Catholic, which ran 1:38.11 and eventually took third. That’s No. 3 in state history.

Senior Tionna Tobias led off for Winslow, followed by junior Janeya Hammond, senior Rayven Rouse and junior Nylah Perry. Winslow’s time is No. 10 in state history.

For Rancocas Valley, freshman Anabella Chin led off, seniors Darynn Minus-Vincent ran the second and third legs and sophomore Sheriyah Nutt anchored. The Red Devils’ time is No. 18 in state history.

The Red Devils broke the Burlington County record by nearly a second. Willingboro held the mark of 1:41.20, set at the 1994 East Coast Relays at Morristown, for 25 years. The overall Burlington County mark of 1:40.77 was set indoors at Easterns by Moorestown in 2000 with Amandi Rhett anchoring.

Paul VI ran a season-best and school-record 1:41.70, which is No. 22 in state history. Senior Keyanna Watkins, juniors Skylar Harris and Blair Daniel and senior Aaliyah Vandergrift ran for PVI.
