The 1970s are alive and well on the all-time South Jersey boys sprint medley top-50 performance list!!!!!

Yesterday, we ran down the long and wild progression of the South Jersey sprint medley record, and today it’s time for the all-time South Jersey top-50 sprint medley list!

All the times up through 1978 were run at the full one-mile distance and all the times from 1980 on were run at 1,600 meters. Meets were split in 1979, and on this list Willingboro’s 1979 time was run in meters and Woodbury’s in yards. I converted all the yard sprint meds down using the standard .9942 conversion ratio.

Incredibly, 9 of the top 15 times were run during that three-year span from 2001 through 2003, a stretch when Vineland, Camden, Willingboro, Winslow, Bridgeton and Lenape were all putting down incredible sprint medley times.

Only four of the top 25 times come from this past decade, but the list includes a remarkable 11 performances from the 1970s (compared to just three from the 1990s!).

As always, I appreciate the corrections and additions you guys are sending in through the comment section. I’m making the changes as soon as I can!
