Three S.J. records were broken at the 1979 Pennsauken Open, including the javelin! Here’s the all-time S.J. old-javelin top-50!!!

The 1979 Pennsauken Open was quite a meet, with no less than three South Jersey records set in the span of a few hours.

First, Overbrook’s Darlene Grant set a state record of 13.5 in winning the 100-meter hurdles. Then Willingboro’s Carol Lewis, second to Grant in the hurdles, broke her own South Jersey long jump mark with a 19-6 3/4. And finally Tracie Pickard broke the South Jersey javelin record with a throw of 127-3, which broke the South Jersey record of 124-6, set a year earlier by Woodburys’ Donalee Budd.

Pickard and Budd are two of the earliest names on an old javelin list loaded with them.

The old javelin implement was used up through 2001. Our next top-50 list will be the new javelin.

Some of the girls records from the late 1970s and early 1981s are incomplete so there could be names missing here. Please let me know in the comment’s section!
