Jalen Jones from Burlington Township just misses Monmouth school record in 300!!!

Jalen Jones, a Burlington Township graduate, just missed the Monmouth University school record at 300 meters Friday in his first race of the indoor season.

Jones, a Monmouth junior,  ran 34.67 at the Seahawk Shootout at Ocean Breeze in Staten Island, N.Y. He won his section and wound up second out of 63 runners, behind only Penn sophomore Emerson Douds, who won a separate section in 34.24. It was a final by time.

Jones’ time is No. 2 in Monmouth history, behind only Khalid Slocum’s 34.56 two years ago at the same meet on the same track. Jones’ previous 300 PR was 35.36 in the same race Slocum ran 34.56.

Jones is a two-time Metro Atlantic Conference 400-meter dash champion. He has 400 PRs of 48.28 outdoors and 48.38 indoors.
