Premier Wynn’s blazing 21.2 anchor leads Pennsauken to 3rd place & All-America honors at Ocean Breeze 4-by-200!!!!!!

Junior Premier Wynn’s blistering 21.22 anchor led Pennsauken to 3rd place in the 800-meter relay at Ocean Breeze Nationals. 

The team of juniors Bryce Tucker and Kahlil Ali, senior Nadir Paige and Wynn ran 1:29.81, fastest in New Jersey this year, and placed 3rd behind Hardin Valley Academy of Knoxville, Tenn. [1:28.76] and Cathedral High School of San Diego [1:29.12].

With a top-six finish, Pennsauken earned all-America honors. 

Pennsauken’s previous fastest 4-by-200 this year was a 1:32.46 at the Group 3 state relays at the Bubble in Toms River back in January.

It’s also fastest by any South Jersey school in five years, since Rancocas Valley ran
1:29.29 to win Easterns at the Armory in 2017.

They’re the only New Jersey 4-by-2 to go under 1:30 this year. Their time is No. 16 in South Jersey history just 7-100ths of a second off the school record of 1:29.74 set by a 2016 Pennsauken team that included Stephen Elam, Marquan Jones, Briheem Whitfield and Nahzir Russell and placed 3rd at Easterns at the Armory.
