Burlington Township graduate Jalen Jones won his first collegiate conference title Sunday with a big 400 PR at the MAAC Championships.
Jones, a Monmouth sophomore, ran 48.38 to win the 400 by over half a second at the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference meet at the Armory.

Jones’ previous indoor 400 PR was a 49.11 in the trials on Saturday. Before that it was 49.57 at Boston University last February. His outdoor PR is from last year’s MAAC Championships in West Long Branch, where he ran 49.21 in the trials.
At Township, had PRs of 50.24 indoors and 48.84 outdoors, so this was an overall lifetime PR, and he did it on a 200-meter track with nobody close to him.
