Anthony Vasquez anchors Egg Harbor boys to U.S. #3 shuttle hurdles at state relays!!!

Now that the National Scholastic Indoors has gotten rid of the shuttle hurdles event, the state relays is likely the last chance for New Jersey schools to compete in the event.

If this was Egg Harbor’s final try at the 4-by-55 hurdles this winter, it was one heck of a performance.

Senior Anthony Vazquez, South Jersey’s top hurdler, anchored EHT to a win at the state Group 4 relays at the Bennett Center in Toms River.

Seniors Marcus Wood and William Spence and sophomore Malachi Wesley set up Vazquez, and EHT ran 30.42, finishing a half second ahead of Elizabeth, which ran 30.85.

That’s No. 2 in the state this year, behind Irvington’s 30.17 at the Essex County Relays at Ocean Breeze last weekend. That’s No. 14 in South Jersey history and No. 3 in Atlantic County history, behind EHT’s 29.74 in 2009 and Oakcrest’s 30.07 in 2012.

Here’s a look at the all-time South Jersey shuttle hurdles list, with all known sub-31-second times:
