Was the Braddock DQ a good call? Watch the N.J. MileSplit video and decide!

Another controversial officiating ruling today, this time at the South Jersey Group 4 1,600 at Washington Township.

Kyle Rakitis and Jackson Braddock locked up in a race that produced the two-fastest times ever run at any New Jersey sectional meet. with Kingsway’s Rakitis edging U.S. No. 6 Braddock of Southern Regional by 6-100ths of a second.

But Braddock was disqualified for impeding Rakitis, who was racing to his outside down the final homestretch., removing Braddock’s performance from the record books and preventing two more classic showdowns at states and the Meet of Champions between two of New Jersey’s best milers ever.

Was it a good call? Watch the video, provided to MileSplit by Jennifer Braddock, and you decide: https://nj.milesplit.com/videos/490872/finish-to-boys-sj-group-4-1600m
