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.
