It’s the South Jersey School Record Project!!!

As far as I can tell, there are 84 high schools in South Jersey that sponsor outdoor track and field teams. Somewhat fewer have indoor programs.

It’s a lot of schools. A lot of programs.

Our long-range goal?

To have updated school records from all 84 of those programs – boys and girls, indoors and outdoors – posted in a single place for easy viewing.

From Bordentown to Cape May. (Are any two South Jersey schools farther apart than Bordentown and Cape May?)

It’s a lot to ask, but, hey, we all have a little bit of free time right now so if you’re a coach, athlete, alum … anyone who has access to school records or feels like doing a whole ton of research, send over a link, a photo, a *.pdf or *doc file … and I’ll take care of the rest!

I’m going to sticky this for now, and I’ll update it as records come in. Delsea sent over its boys and girls indoor and outdoor records Monday, and they’re impressive! Check ’em out! And I just found West Deptford’s records on the school’s web site!

I’ve checked about 30 South Jersey high school web sites and only found a few that have records posted. So let’s do this! Let’s see close we can get to 84-for-84!

      Yeah, like I wrote, that whole S.J. Group 3 200 final that year had some sort of timing irregularity. I’ll have to go back and check my story for the details, but the clock did not start at the right time or did not operate correctly in that race, and if I remember correctly none of the six medalists ever ran with 3-10ths of a second of those times before or after that race. So I’ve always listed it with an asterisk.

    Great Stuff. I Love It. I can’t wait to see all the SJ School Records. I’m just a track fan/nut.

      Thanks, Ruck! Me too! Maybe if I keep doing this they’ll eventually put me in the SJ Track Hall of Fame! 🙂
