Patti Dunlap’s 13-year monopoly on the S.J. girls indoor 200 record! And the all-time top-50 list!!!

The indoor 200 was a rarity for a long time. And this list reflects that.

There really waasn’t anywhere to run it indoors before that. And let’s be honest: The indoor 200 really isn’t a fair race because lane assignment is such a huge part of the result on a banked track. You can really only run three people at a time and still keep it a fair race.

The 200-meter dash wasn’t added to girls Easterns until 1996, so it’s no surprise that 47 of the top-50 indoor 200 times in South Jersey history have been recorded since 1996.

In 1996, Easterns moved from Boston to Princeton, where it merged with the boys meet to form one big, giant Easterns Championship, and with the merger came a codifying of events, so the girls started running the 200. But it wasn’t until the NJSIAA added it to the state meet program in 2005 that the event really took off indoors.

It all makes some of the early 200 marks really impressive.

Camden’s amazing Patti Dunlap set a South Jersey indoor record of 26.4 for 220 yards in 1979 (never did figure out what meet she did it), and that stood as the South Jersey record for 13 years, until Haddon Heights’ Ivy Foster ran 25.38 in 1992 (again, can’t find the meet).

Dana Burnett of Williamstown was the first under 25 seconds indoors, lowering the S.J. record to 24.78 at 1996 nationals in Boston.

Moorestown’s Amandi Rhett lowered the record to 24.46 as part of her double state-record performance at 2000 Easterns – she also anchored Moorestown’s state-record 1:40.77 that night – and Krystal Cantey of Winslow, known best as an All-America intermediate hurdler, has held the mark since 2006 with her 24.38, which she ran at Easterns when she finished in a virtual dead heat with Racquel Vassell of East Orange, Vassell getting the win after a read of the photo.

Here you go, indoor 200 fans!
