Pennsauken’s Bryce Tucker becomes South Jersey’s first indoor state quad winner in 14 years!!!!!

Incredible day for Pennsauken junior Bryce Tucker, who won four state titles Saturday at the Bubble.

Tucker became the first South Jersey boy in 14 years with a quad win at indoor states.

Tucker started his day off winning the 400 in 49.89, finishing half a step ahead of Mainland senior Cody Pierce, who ran a big PR of 50.06. Pennsauken junior Premier Wynn finished 1-100th of a second behind Pierce with a PR of his own at 50.07.

Tucker then won the 55-meter hurdles in 7.72, only 4-100ths of a second off his PR set on a much faster track at the Armory last month.

In the 800, it was Tucker and Joel Oquendo teaming up for 12 points, Tucker winning in 1:58.11 over Ocean City’s Owen Ritti’s 1:58.87, and Oquendo 5th in 2:00.51.

Then Tucker anchored Pennsauken’s 1,600-meter relay team, which ran 3:27.99. Kahlil Ali, Wynn and Oquendo also ran. Oquendo also PR’d in the 1,600 with a 4:25.39 for 6th place.

South Jersey’s last quad winner was Pleasantville’s Kenneth Davis at the 2008 Group 1 meet, also at the Bennett Center in Toms River.

Davis won the 400 in 51.33, the high hurdles in 7.73 – the same time as runner-up Gerkenz Senesca of Abraham Clark – and the high jump at 6-2. He also anchored Pleasantville’s 1,600-meter relay team, which also included Raymond Wilson, Jamal Roberts and Larry Ramirez.

Pennsauken placed second to West Windsor-Plainsboro North, which outscored Pennsauken 57-49.
