The Deptford quartet of Manny Perdue, Gursharan Singh, George Rodgers and Lathan Brown earned All-America honors Saturday with a 5th-place in the shuttle hurdles at Armory Nationals.
Deptford ran 33.04 in the 4-by-55-meter version of the indoor shuttles. The Spartans actually ran a fraction faster at the Group 1-4 SJTCA meet at the Bubble in January with their 32.87.
Four of the 14 teams entered in the competition were DQ’d, all for one of their legs leaving too early.
Archbishop Carroll of Radnor Township, Delaware County, Pa., won the race in 30.84 seconds.
Deptford also placed 5th in the “Rising Stars” division of the 800-meter relay with a season-best 1:32.96, and Brown ran 50.26 in the open 400.
