Maya Drayton, a recent Cherry Hill East graduate, had a big weekend at the AAU Region 2 National Qualifier, running a personal-best 12.05 in the 100-meter dash and matching her 200 PR with a 24.53.
Drayton had high school PRs of 12.13 and 24.53, both from this past Meet of Champions at Northern Burlington, where she placed seventh in both races.
Drayton, who will run at Georgetown, won both events in the 17-18 age group at Stockton University in Galloway Township. She ran the 12.05 and 24.53 in the trials and won the finals in 12.17 and 24.67.
She’ll advance to the AAU National Championships. It’s not clear on the AAU web site exactly where and when that meet is, but it appears to be this coming weekend at Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
