Cherokee grad Kaila Carter wins NJAC 60-meter hurdles title, shatters TCNJ school record!!!!!

Kaila Carter, a Cherokee graduate and a senior at The College of New Jersey, won the NJAC hurdles title Monday at Ocean Breeze and shattered a 10-year-old school record.

Carter ran 8.89 over the 60-meter highs and edged teammate Kassidy Mulrayne, who was second in 9.03. TCNJ went 1-2-4-5 for 27 points in the race. Annette Wanjiku of West Deptord was 4th in 9.14 for TCNJ.

TCNJ won its third straight NJAC indoor team title. 

It was Carter’s first NJAC title after a 2nd, a 3rd, a 4th and a 6th either indoors or outdoors.

Her 8.89 broke the school record of 8.91, set in 2010 by Priscilla Senyah. 

Carter’s previous PR was an 8.92, which she ran at Ithaca in 2018 and again at George Mason last month.

Carter’s time is No. 8 in NCAA Division 3 and No. 1 in the Atlantic Region.
