Willingboro boys and girls sweep state relays titles for record FIFTH time!!!!!

For the fifth time in the last 19 years, the Willingboro boys and girls programs have swept the state relays titles.

The Willingboro boys and girls each won state titles at the Group 1 relays Wednesday at the Bennett Center in Toms River, and they each did it in commanding fashion.

The Chimera boys nearly doubled up second-place Camden, 50-26, and the girls defeated Audubon, 43-26.

How impressive is this?

Only nine other schools have ever had a state relays sweep in any group even once. And only two others — Asbury Park and Delsea — have done it more than once. Asbury Park swept Group 2 in 1992 and 1993, and Delsea swept Group 2 in 2010 and 2011.

Willingboro swept Group 3 in 2002, 2003 and 2005 and Group 1 in 2019 and 2020.

So Willingboro has had five state relays sweeps since 2002, and every other school in the rest of the state combined has also had five.

Here’s a look at all the schools that have recorded state relays sweeps:

5 … Willingboro [Group 3 in 2002, 2003 and 2005, Group 1 in 2019 and 2020]
2 … Asbury Park [Group 2 in 1992, 1993]
2 … Bernards [Group 1 in 1985, Group 2 in 1986]
2 … Delsea [Group 2 in 2010, 2011]
1 … Bishop Eustace [Group 2 in 1996]
1 … Haddonfield [Group 1 in 2014]
1 … Kingsway [Group 3 in 2014]
1 … Matawan [Group 2 in 2013]
1 … Newark Arts [Group 1 in 1990]
1 … Red Bank Reg. [Group 2 in 2000]

I’ll have more about how both Willingboro teams won their state titles soon, but for now check out this incredible record by the Willingboro track programs over the years.

Willingboro has been winning state titles since 1979 — 42 seasons ago — and now has 65 state team championships. That’s a lot of banners hanging in the gym!

Either the Chimera boys or girls teams have won at least one state title indoors or outdoors in 33 of the last 42 years.
