Former South Jersey sprinters Dennisha Page and Bria Mack finished 1-2 Sunday in the 60-meter dash at a Penn State Tri-Meet in State College.
Page, a sophomore at Rutgers from Wilson, won the race in 7.58 and Mack, a Maryland senior from Williamstown, was second in 7.62.
Aliyah Harrison, a Rutgers junior from Sterling, made it three South Jersey girls among the top six, finishing sixth in 7.93.
Page, a transfer from Syracuse, was competing in her first race for Rutgers. She ran within 8-100ths of her PR of 7.50, which she set for Syracuse at the Greg Page Relays in December of 2019 at Cornell University’s Barton Hall in Ithaca, N.Y.
Page’s 7.58 ranks No. 7 in Rutgers history. The school record of 7.34 was set at the 2016 Big Ten Championships in Geneva, Ohio, by Williamstown High School graduate Gabrielle Farquharson.
Mack, a transfer from Florida, ran within 4-100ths of a second of her 60-meter PR of 7.58, which she ran on the same track in January of 2019.
