Rancocas Valley boys run N.J. #1 times in the 4×1 and 4×2 at Metuchen Relays!

Rancocas Valley opened the outdoor season Saturday with a couple hot sprint relay performances at the Metuchen Relays.

The Red Devils ran state-leading marks of 43.13 in the 400-meter relay and 1:30.38 in the 800-meter relay, winning both events in the morning large-school division.

Junior Masai Byrd, senior Isaiah Arzu, junior Herbert Quarterman and senior James McGhee ran on the 4-by-100 team and Arzu, junior David Murry, Byrd and McGhee ran on the 4-by-200.

Both relay times are R.V.’s fastest since 2017.

Red Devils ran 42.12 at the 2017 state Group 4 meet and 1:29.11 at New Balance Nationals in Greensboro.

School records are 42.03 and 1:28.23, both from 2015. The Red Devils ran the 42.03 when they won the 4×1 at the Meet of Champions in South Plainfield and they ran 1:28.23 in the Group 4 race at the Woodbury Relays, when they finished just behind Williamstown’s 1:27.96.
