Rancocas Valley boys 4-by-100 runs NJ #1 at Cherokee Relays!!!

Rancocas Valley ran the fastest 400-meter relay in the state this year and the No. 3 time in Burlington County history Friday night at the Cherokee Relays in Marlton.

The Red Devils ran 42.11, only a fraction of a second off the school record of 42.03 from when they won the 2015 Meet of Champions 4-by-100 at South Plainfield.

Junior Masai Byrd led off for R.V., followed by junior Herb Quarterman, senior James McGhee and senior Isaiah Arzu.

Rancocas Valley’s time is more than a full second faster than any other New Jersey school so far this year. Elizabeth is No. 2 at 43.29. Pennsauken, which was second in the race at Cherokee, is No. 3 with its 43.44.

RV’s time is No. 38 in South Jersey history.
