Lathan Brown, Gursharan Singh lead Deptford to second sectional championship!!!

Junior Lathan Brown and senior Gursharan Singh combined for 46 points Friday and led Deptford to it’s second indoor sectional title.

The Spartans out-scored Gloucester County rival Delsea 75-59 to win the South Jersey Group 2 title at the Bubble in Toms River.

Brown won the 400 and 800, placed 3rd in the high hurdles and ran on the winning 4-by-4, and Singh won the pole vault, placed 3rd in the high jump and took 4th in the hurdles.

Deptford also won the South Jersey Group 2 title in 2019. The Spartans placed 3rd in 2020. The meet wasn’t held last year.

You don’t see a lot of half-milers medaling in the hurdles, and you certainly don’t see a lot of pole vaulters medaling in the hurdles, but their versatility helped Deptford outscore Delsea 75-59 to win the South Jersey Group 2 meet at the Bubble in Toms River.

Brown won the 400 in 50.59 and the 800 in 2:00.42 and took 3rd in the hurdles in a PR 8.23. Singh cleared 12-6 to win the vault, jumped 5-8 for 3rd in the high jump and ran 8.37 for 4th in the hurdles.

Sophomore Manny Perdue, a 1st-year hurdler, ran 8.14 to win the hurdles in his 7th hurdles race ever. His previous PR was 8.26 at a SJTCA meet at Ocean Breeze earlier this month.

Senior Param Grewal and sophomores Carl Carter and Christian Berry joined Brown on the winning 4-by-400 team, which ran 3:37.15.

The Spartans also got point from sophomore Abu Jabbie [4th in high jump, PR 5-8], junior Aiden Doerr [4th in pole vault, PR 10-6] and freshman Henry Julian [6th in pole vault, PR 9-6 in what looks like his first official high school pole vault competition].

Second-place Delsea scored 24 of its 59 points with a sweep in the shot put, led by senior Jason Nwosu’s 60-3 ¼. Senior Josh Caudill [51-10 ¾] took 2nd and sophomore Greg Masso was 3rd with a 49-3.
