TCNJ freshman Amanda Demko of Shawnee wins NJAC 400 title!

Shawnee graduate Amanda Demko, a College of New Jersey freshman, won the 400-meter dash at the NJAC Championships Saturday at Stockton University in Galloway Township.

Demko ran 57.91, leading a 1-2-3-4 TCNJ sweep, good for 29 team points in one event.  Sophomore Megan Gasnick was second in 58.47.

Demko ran just off her PR of 57.46, which she set last month in a meet at Franklin Field in West Philadelphia.

TCNJ won its first team title since 2014 with 309 1/2 points. 

Unfortunately, TCNJ does not have a list of all-time conference champions on its web site (or much of anything else). So can’t tell you the last TCNJ woman to win a conference title in the 400.

But winning a conference title as a true freshman is quite an accomplishment for Demko, who also placed fourth in the 200.
