Next in the S.J. County Record Project: Jonathan Taylor, Arianna Smith, the mysterious Tim Reed and the Salem County records!!!

Whoever can find out where Penns Grove’s Tim Reed ran 47.8 for 400 meters gets a From the Backstretch t-shirt!

Well, there is no such thing, but if we had ’em, you’d get one.

Reed is listed in New Jersey Track as running 47.8 for Penns Grove in 1984. But it wasn’t at states, sectionals or the Meet of Champions, and it wasn’t at the Salem County meet. So where?

All you track sleuths can work on that today!

Anyway, we finish up the 14-part South Jersey County Record Project with Salem County outdoor records.

Tomorrow we’ll post the complete set of South Jersey boys and girls outdoor records, and then we’re going to start another major project that’s going to go on for a few more weeks! More on that Wednesday!

    Thanks for all you do covering our sport. Your hard work and passion is appreciated by so many. I reached out to the Salem County guru John Maniglia and he thinks that Tim Reed ran that time at the Tri County Meet. We won’t be able to confirm until we can get back to school though. He has those results buried in a filing cabinet in the gym locker room.
    One change I can also confirm for the record list, Pennsville ran 18:34.87 for the 6400 meter relay at the 2008 SJTCA relays at Buena. Once we get back to school we will hopefully confirm the Reed time. Thanks!!

      Hey Geoff! How’s it going?

      Thanks for the kind words! I really appreciate that!

      Turns out Tim actually ran that 47.8 on June 5, 1984, at the Delaware Valley Meet of Champions at Franklin Field, which from what I hear was an incredible meet. I love the concept of all the best from Philly, Philly suburbs and South Jersey racing each other! Edgewood broke the state 4×4 record the same day with a 3:11.2!

      I’ll add that 4×16 time to the Salem County records right now! Thanks for the heads up.

      Take care of yourself, hope to see ya at a meet before too long!

      Tim Reed’s 400m time at the Tri-County Championships in 1984 was 48.8s.
