Hurdles sweep lifts Winslow boys to first indoor sectional title in 12 years!!!!!

Senior Isaiah Lewis, junior Brandon Greene and senior Terry McNeill swept the hurdles, leading the Winslow Township boys to their first sectional title indoors or out in 12 years.

Winslow outscored Ocean City by 1 1/2 points, using the 24 points in the 55-meter highs for a 51 1/2-50 win in the South Jersey Group 3 meet at the Bennett Center.

The Winslow boys hadn’t won a sectional title since the Group 3 title indoors in 2008. Their last outdoor title was in Group 4 in 2006.

Lewis ran 7.66 to win the 55 highs, breaking his PR of 7.68 from the Varsity Classic earlier this month at the Armory. Greene ran 7.79, breaking his PR of 7.82, also from the Varsity Classic. McNeill took third in 7.81.

Lewis and McNeill also placed third and fifth in the high jump for 10 more points that turned out to be critical.

Winslow also got a win in a hotly contested shot put competition that saw two of the state’s best go head-to-head.

Senior John Purvis, one of only two 60-footers in the state this year, won the event with a 57-9 1/4 after a good challenge from Hammonton senior Nate Karl, who threw within three-quarters of an inch of his PR at 56-10 1/4. They are ranked No. 2 and 4 in the state.

McNeill, Greene, Lewis and sophomore Trey Moore teamed up to take third in the 1,600-meter relay in 3:33.88.
