EHT’S LAUREN PRINCZ RUNS U.S. #8 6.98, WINS MEET OF CHAMPIONS 55 TITLE!!!!!

HOW ABOUT A 6.98 FOR LAUREN PRINCZ!!!!!

Princz, the Egg Harbor junior, won her first indoor Meet of Champions title Sunday morning, and she did it with her first lifetime sub-7.00 performance!

Princz, who came in with a PR of 7.05, ran 6.98 to run away from the field and become the first Egg Harbor girl ever to win an indoor Meet of Champions title!

Princz’s time is No. 7 in South Jersey history, No. 8 in the U.S. this year158187145220864304.png and No. 8 in meet history! It’s also No. 14 in state history!

Kent Place sophomore Christiana Nwachuku led early, but Prince moved into the lead about halfway through the race and won convincingly over Nwachuku, who ran 7.06. They were the only girls under 7.10.

Princz won the 200-meter dash at the 2018 outdoor Meet of Champions.

The only previous Meet of Champions winners from Atlantic County are Atlantic City’s Mercedes Hicks in the shot put in 2006 and Claudine Smith from Atlantic City last year in the hurdles.

Princz won the 55 just minutes after Anthony Vazquez won the 55-meter hurdles and became the first boy or girl from Egg Harbor to win an individual title at the Meet of Champions!
