48 years later, Paul VI’s record-setting shuttle hurdles team is still #6 in S.J. history!!!!! And here’s the all-time top-50 list!!!

It’s been nearly half a century since Craig Grant, Bob Seeberger, Bob Jackson and Jim Kanz of Paul VI first established the South Jersey shuttle hurdles record.

Incredibly, they’re still in the all-time top-10 in South Jersey history.

Pau VI got started during the winter of 1971-1972 with a 30.5 in the Catholic Track Conference Championships at West Point, N.Y., two days before Christmas of 1971.

The same group then ran 30.3 to win the Parochial A race at the state relays at the Jersey City Armory.

Five weeks later, a special shuttle hurdles match race was held at Princeton during the IC4A Championships, and Metuchen set a national shuttle hurdles record of 29.0. Rahway ran 29.3 and Paul VI 29.6 to break its own South Jersey record.

Six years later, at the 1978 State Relays at Jadwin, Camden ran 29.6 to break Paul VI’s South Jersey record:

Camden’s mark stood for 21 years until cross-town rival Wilson ran 29.5 in 1999. Winslow’s 29.72 fully automatic in 2004 equalled Wilson’s mark, and Deptford ended any debate about the S.J. mark with a ridiculous 29.45 last year.

I’m never quite sure if I should combine hand times and FAT times in these lists. It depends on the event. For something like the 55, you have to have separate lists. For the 3,200 you can just combine them into one. The shuttle hurdles is somewhere in the middle. So what I did was put together three lists: 1) Combined all-time top-50 list with hand times not converted but placed where they would be if they were converted, 2) FAT all-time top-50 list and 3) hand-timed all-time top-50 list.

This is the last boys indoor top-50. We’ll start the girls indoor list next!
