Francis Terry, Hunter Barbieri, Amara Conte and Vincent Delle teamed up to run the second-fastest 1,600-meter relay time in NCAA Division 3 on Saturday.
Terry is a graduate of Sterling, Barber from Egg Harbor Township, Conte from Ferris High in Jersey City and Delle from Old Bridge.
Terry, Barber, Conte and Delle ran an unpressed 3:15.86 at the Bill Butler Invitational at West Chester University’s Farrell Stadium. The Profs won by 40 meters over The College of New Jersey, which ran 3:21.12.
The only faster Division 3 time this year was turned in on Friday by McMurry University of Abilene, Texas, which ran 3:15.13 at the UIW Invitational at Incarnate Word University in San Antonio.
The 1985 Rowan team – then Glassboro State College – set the school record of 3:10.1 hand-timed, with Deptford’s Tommy Adams and Overbrook’s Ron Moore on the team. That quartet went on to win the NCAA Division 3 title at 3:11.57
