Kingsway boys record huge 4-by-8 win at the Armory with all-time S.J. #7 time!!!!!

Even without one of its top runners, Kingsway ran the fastest 4-by-8 in the nation Saturday, tearing up the Armory track with a blistering 7:52.76 at the Dr. Sander Invitational.

Senior Stone Caraccio uncorked a 1:53.36 anchor after carries by seniors Chris Nelson (2:03.19) and Ethan Bentley (1:58.82) and sophomore Kyle Rakitis (1:57.47) as Kingsway won by 30 meters over West Springfield (Mass.), which was second in 7:57.18.

Nelson was filling in for sophomore Jeff Heineman, who is sick, and did a great job keeping Kingsway in contact with the leaders until the first handoff.

Kingsway, which had run 7:55.30 at the Millrose Trials, moved into the No. 6 spot in South Jersey history and ran with.1 1/2 seconds of the Gloucester County record of 7:51.43, set by Washington Township in 2009 at the National Scholastic Championships on the same Armory track.

Kingsway’s previous indoor school record was that 7:55.30 from earlier this month.

That was No. 1 on the MileSplit U.S. performance list until Richard Montgomery High of Rockville, Md., ran 7:55.06 last weekend at the VA Showcase at the new facility at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va.
