With over 100 points from freshmen and sophomores, Pennsauken boys win first sectional title in 16 years!!!!!

Sophomore quad winner Bryce Tucker and his insanely young Pennsauken teammates won the Central Jersey Group 3 1,600-meter relay Saturday to wrap up the school’s first sectional title in 16 years.

With freshmen and sophomores piling up 104 of their 116 points, Pennsauken outscored second-place Colts Neck 116-77.

Sophomores Ejani Shakir, Kahlil Ali, Premier Wynn and Tucker ran 3:24.87 to win the 1,600-meter relay by 30 meters and put a giant exclamation point on an incredible two days at Jackson Liberty.

This is Pennsauken’s second sectional title and first since the Indians won South Jersey Group 4 in 2005 by a 98-70 count over Winslow Township at Egg Harbor.

Pennsauken did not score a point in the last sectional meet, held two years ago.

First of all, congrats to senior Chris Weaver, who placed second in the javelin and fourth in the triple jump for Pennsauken, the Indians’ only point scorer who’s not a sophomore or junior.

But the nucleus of this terrific Pennsauken team, coached by Clinton Tabb, consists of Tucker, Ali, Wynn, Shakir and freshman Elijah Jenkins, who had a hand in 98 of Pennsauken’s 108 points.

Those five freshmen and sophomores combined for three first (all by Tucker) along with a second, four thirds, a fourth and six legs on winning relay teams.
