IT’S THE SOUTH JERSEY BOYS AND GIRLS OUTDOOR RECORD BOOK!

OK, here’s our best attempt at the South Jersey outdoor record book. As you can see there are a handful of marks that I haven’t yet figured out where they were achieved. Your help is always appreciated.

Haddon Township’s 17:20.0 four-mile relay in 1973 is an interesting one because I would have guessed it was at East Coast Relays, but they ran 17:21.2 that day at Elizabeth, taking second to Paramus Catholic and Tim Coheeney, who ran an absurd 17:12.6. That’s an average of 4:16.5 for a full mile. Archbishop Malloy ran 17:24.7 and Williamstown ran 17:41.3 for fourth! What a race! nearly four decades later, those top three times are still among the top 15 in U.S. history!

I’m not sure how many other chances Haddon Township would have had to run a hot four-mile relay. Maybe South Jersey Relays was loaded that year?

Anybody who can fill in any of the blanks your help is always appreciated! Additions, corrections and omissions please drop me a note in the comment’s section!

      oh shoot, I know that … He ran that at Keebler out in Illinois after his senior year at Delran and won the race. He made the U.S. team that raced at World Juniors. And we’re Facebook friends and I still forgot about that race!

      If Rex had stayed at Holy Cross and run with Eric Lorenz and Chris Creighton and that group, they would have been unstoppable!

      Thanks for the heads up! Hope all is well with you!

    Camden County: Jerry Andrews ran 14:42.2 for 5000 meters at the Jr. Nationals in 1979 to place 5th. It was the same year and meet that Dick Caton ran his best 800 meter time to also place 5th.
